CEDAR RAPIDS – A registered sex offender who attempted to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity was sentenced Wednesday to more than 37 years in federal prison.
Wayne Carlisle, age 38, of Oelwein, Iowa, received the sentence after a November 12, 2013, guilty plea to one count of attempted enticement of a minor and one count of committing a felony offense involving a minor by a person required to register as a sex offender. At the guilty plea, Carlisle admitted that, in 2012, he attempted to entice an undercover officer who was posing as a minor to meet for the purpose of unlawful sex with a minor. Carlisle was required to register as a sex offender based on his convictions for two counts of lascivious acts with a child in Linn County in 1996.
Carlisle was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Carlisle was sentenced to 447 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $200 was imposed, and Carlisle must also serve a life term of supervised release. He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.
This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Hiawatha Police Department, the Iowa State Patrol, and the Oelwein Police Department.
