Trial date set for sex offender who was alone with two young boys

MASON CITY – A Mason City sex offender’s trial date is set after being accused of violating the state’s sex offender registry last month when it was discovered he was alone in a garage with two young boys.

In a Cerro Gordo county courtroom Monday, judge Karen Salic set a November 4 jury trial for 53-year-old Mark Monroe Hoffman. He is accused of violating the state’s sex offender registry on September 21 after police went to his house and he ran from deputies. An investigation showed that a woman, Jaime Lynn Peterson, age 32, was at Hoffman’s house with her children that day.  She was arrested along with Hoffman and charged with two counts of child endangerment for leaving her three-year-old son and five-year-old son alone in the garage with Hoffman.  She is awaiting an October 10 hearing on those charges.

Monroe is also facing probation revocation proceedings for the second time connected to a guilty plea in a third degree burglary case in Cerro Gordo county.  He was already found guilty in August of the first violation and given 30 days in jail, which he does not appear to have served, yet.
