Teepe Sentenced

November 13, 2015

A Laurens man charged with incest in May has been sentenced in Pocahontas County District Court.

The Pocahontas County Sheriff’s Department charged 66-year-old Arthur Teepe with incest, a class “D” felony. The charge stems from allegation of indecent contact with a juvenile female.

Teepe pleaded guilty… and was given a five-year suspended sentence with a 750-dollar fine suspended. Teepe was placed on probation for five years, ordered to submit a DNA sample, register with the state’s sex offender registry, and pay 489-dollars in court costs.
