  • Andrew James Kluver, 22, of Randolph, Iowa, was sentenced to 20 years in prison on March 31 for the sexual abuse of two minor children.
    Prior to the sentencing in Fremont County District Court, Kluver admitted to sexually abusing the boys on separate occasions when they were approximately 2 years old. The abuse occurred between 2009 and 2013.
    On March 17, Kluver pled guilty to one count of Sexual Abuse in the 3rd Degree, a Class C Felony and one count of Lascivious Acts with a Child, also a class C Felony. Both charges carry 10 year sentences, which will run consecutively.  He also received a lifetime special sentence, which will essentially act as a lifetime parole and begin when he is released from prison.
    He will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. No Contact Orders between Kluver and the victims will continue for five years and may be extended at the request of the victims.
    District Court Judge Kathleen Kilnoski stated during sentencing she felt the length of the prison sentence was appropriate to protect the community and to give Kluver the opportunity to rehabilitate.
    “I would like to thank Project Harmony, the family of the victims and local law enforcement for all the hours they devoted to this case,” County Attorney James Burger said.
    “The successful prosecution of this case has been a group effort,” he said.
