Tutor Fails To Show For Hearing On Sex Crime Case

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An arrest warrant has been issued in St. Louis County for a former tutor convicted of having sex with a minor.

A district court judge issued the warrant Monday after 24-year-old Andrew Roggenkamp failed to show up for a probation violation hearing in Duluth. Roggenkamp was working as a tutor for Sylvan Learning Center in 2008 when the victim’s mother said she found inappropriate messages sent by Roggenkamp to her 15-year-old daughter, who was his student. Sylvan fired the tutor. The sex crime happened later that year. Roggenkamp pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 20 days in jail and seven years’ probation. A three-year prison term was stayed.

The Duluth News Tribune says Roggenkamp’s attorney, Lynn Torgerson of Minneapolis, says she has been unable to contact her client for some time.

    Maybe you should have held onto him while you had him! He’s probably out raping someone else’s child now!

  • Alfred

    He was sentenced to over 20 years in prison and didn’t show up for court?

    Who could have seen that coming?

  • JoJo

    Days…… not years

    Most sex offenders are not worse than murderers and violent criminals.

    It’s just easy money for Unions to be more scared of sex offenders.

    That’s one reason why you see real criminals shooting up the streets, and Public School teachers are not getting budget money.

    Perhaps the dude killed himself.

      They’re on the same scale. They should all be forced to forfeit their lives. That is the only way they’ll pay their debt. There is no rehabilitation for these freaks.

    20 DAYS in jail and 7 years probation.

    SeeBS…you make as much sense as Michelle Bachmann leading a Gay Pride parade

    ..I take that as a compliment..It’s obvious that MB is on a fast track to the GOP nomination & will easily sail to victory to become the next President..She’s well qualified,intelligent,highly skilled & articulate and a great,great leader.

    BS/VD has some sort of bizarre issue with the way sex offenders are treated. Perhaps he has a personal stake in the matter.

    I think people in “Sex Offender Treatment” Unions rely on fake fear for job security.

    The book 1984 by George Orwell really twisted my mind didn’t it Todd?

    • Todd W. Olson

      I’d say that your obsession with sex offeder treatment issues and your fascination with supposed 14th Amendment concerns regarding gender disparity in sentencing might led a thoughful individual as to a different concluson regarding the source of your animus.

        I can use many news stories published on this site to prove my point about modern fascism.

        • Todd W. Olson

          Or I could use them to prove that you’re a registered sex offender who feels that women have wronged you.

          • See BS

            I bet it will be much easier for me to prove See BS has one “one-eyed-wonder-worm envy”.

            Go ahead and do a criminal record search Joe McCarthy! I’ll kick your butt with hard science!

            • Todd W. Olson

              Nothing you’ve ever written on any of these boards approaches even the most minimal standard for forensic or academic proof. My guess is that you’re not capable of understanding the issues at hand. But you do have a long standing hatred of women since your trial.

              • See BS

                I can make a laundry list out of stories published on this site and they will speak for itself.

                One reason why women have Boehner envy is because their boyfriends don’t have to use Viagra if they hook up with a 20 year old.

                That really bugs women, especially the ones with moustache hair.

    Unplugg Obamas TelePrompTer and he repeats “Ummm” about 100 times.

    • What???

      See BS
      You keep saying that you will get facts and that you can post them……. We are waiting and nothing seems to ever happen. Just like the rest of the GOP rhetoric, just repeating yourself does not make you correct. I guess copy past is too hard for some people to use. While you are doing your homework, make sure you stop by a site that claims Obama is not a US citizen because we have not heard that arguement from you for a while.

      • See BS

        Where in this thread am I talking about Obamas citizenship????

        They have audio of Obama repeating “Ummmmm” for like 2 minutes straight, because he didn’t have anyone to tell him what to say.
