Sumner man sent to prison for sexual abuse in Chickasaw and Bremer Counties

After pleading guilty in two sexual abuse cases, Michael Adam Koch, 21, of Sumner, will serve up to 10 years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, although he has the possibility of parole.

In Chickasaw County District Court, Koch pleaded guilty on Aug. 9 to lascivious acts with a child (a Class C felony) and was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. A $1,370 fine and surcharge were suspended, and second sex crime charge was dismissed, in accordance with the plea agreement reached with prosecution.

In this case, he sexually abused a pre-teen girl between May 2020 and July 2021, court documents say.

The same prison term was handed down in a Bremer County case, and he will serve it concurrently.

Koch pleaded guilty on Oct. 3 in Bremer County District Court to third-degree sexual abuse (Class C felony). He received credit for time served and again was ordered to register as a sex offender. A $1,370 fine plus surcharge was suspended and a second third-degree sexual abuse count was dismissed as part of the plea agreement with prosecution.

He engaged in sex with a 15-year-old girl in April 2022 when he was 20, court documents say. The Sumner Police were alerted to this when a person turned over text messaging from Koch admitting it.
