CEDAR RAPIDS – A former school bus attendant who enticed three young girls was sentenced today to 11 years in federal prison.
Tyler Konigsmark, age 20, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the sentence after a September 1, 2016 guilty plea to one count of enticement of minors. At the plea hearing and in a plea agreement, Konigsmark admitted that, between April and May of this year, he used Snapchat and his iPhone to request sexually explicit images from three girls, ages 12, 13, and 14, who rode on school buses where he was an attendant. He also admitted that he had sexual intercourse with the 12-year-old girl on two occasions after he used Snapchat and his cell phone to arrange meetings with her.
Konigsmark was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Konigsmark was sentenced to 132 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $5,100 was imposed, and he must also serve a 10-year 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, and the Cedar Rapids Police Department.
