MASON CITY – A Mason City man convicted of sexual acts with a child has been serving months behind bars in a state prison.

Lane Bryan Sage, age 22, was sent to the state prison in Newton, Iowa, in October of 2015 after two violations of his probation. He had been placed on probation after an investigation was launched on December 6, 2013, when Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Deputies began to look into a reported case of sexual contact between an adult and a juvenile. A search warrant was executed at a residence, 413 Prairie View Ct, in Mason City. As a result of the investigation, Sage, then age 20, was arrested. Sage was charged with 7 felony sex crimes. Sage later entered a guilty plea to just one charge – sexual abuse in the third degree against a female child 12-13 years of age. He was given a 10 year suspended prison term, a $1,000 suspended fine, and 5 years of probation. He was also ordered to pay $8,975.00 in court costs, fines ($250) and restitution. He was placed in the Beje Clark halfway house.

On March 24, the Iowa Department of Corrections reported to law enforcement that Sage had violated his probation and a warrant for his arrest was issued. Mason City police arrested him at Beje Clark and he was taken to jail and held on $10,000 bond. He faced a probation revocation hearing on April 20, 2015, was found guilty and sent to jail for 21 days.

Once more, Sage was found guilty of violating his probation, this time on September 30, 2015. As a result, judge Dedra Schroeder imposed the original 10 year prison sentence. Sage was transported to prison and ended in Newton. This week, he has been back in Mason City for evaluation on his “progress” at that correctional institution. He is slated for transport back to Newton at this time.

    I would look to the parents. This couple should not be allowed to foster children. I feel for this child and the children he’s abused. The state really needs to look into clean up their adoption processes.

    I’m glad he broke probation so he is finally going to get justice.
