Authorities have filed a child endangerment charge against a northeast Iowa couple accused of letting a register sex offender live in their home with their three children.
The Fayette County sheriff’s office says Ian and Julia Rodenberg, of Arlington, rented a room to a person on the state’s sex offender registry. They were arrested after a theft investigation at a convenience store in Maynard last week.
Authorities say Julia Rodenberg was charged with theft in that case. During the investigation, officials discovered the couple had rented a room to the sex offender.
The couple’s children, ages 4 to 10, were turned over the Iowa Department of Human Services.
