MASON CITY — It’s 45 years in prison for a Mason City gymnastics club owner found guilty of child sexual abuse.
54-year-old Douglas Hagenow was charged last November with one count of second-degree sexual abuse and two counts of third-degree sexual abuse against a child victim.
Criminal complaints filed in Cerro Gordo County District Court stated that between 2009 and 2014, Hagenow committed sexual acts, with the second-degree sexual abuse charge stating with a female under the age of 12 on at least two separate occasions, and on the third-degree sexual abuse charges with a female under the age of 14.
A jury returned guilty verdicts on all three charges in September.
District Judge DeDra Schroeder on Monday sentenced Hagenow to 25 years in prison on the second-degree sexual abuse charge and ten years each on the third-degree sexual abuse charges, with the sentences to be served consecutively.
Hagenow earlier this month was also found guilty twice of contempt of court violations regarding a no-contact order. He received separate 30 day jail terms on those counts.
