Sex offender pleads guilty to a Class IV Felony.
The Cassgram reveals that 40 year old Thomas Pogge, who now lives in Underwood, Iowa, pled guilty to knowingly providing false information as a registered sex offender, said Deputy Cass County Attorney Steve Sunde.
Sunde said Pogge made his report to the county sheriff’s department as required by law but instead of giving them his new address, he knowingly put his old address on the form.
There were two additional Class IV Felony counts originally filed against Pogge in connection with his false filing but those counts were dropped as part of a plea agreement. The prosecution will join the defense in recommending probation.
Pogge was convicted of sexual abuse in the third degree in Council Bluffs, Iowa in 1999. The victim was a 4-year-old girl.
