MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 31-year-old doctor in Mercy Medical Center’s family practice residency program in Mason City has been charged with failing to register in Iowa as a sex offender.

Dr. Kasey Clowe (cloh) remains free on bond.

Minnesota online records say Clowe was convicted of fifth-degree nonconsensual sex contact in 2002, when he was living in Apple Valley, Minn. The records don’t detail the nature of the offense.

Mercy officials say in a statement that they know about Clowe’s arrest and “have taken appropriate action.” Mercy spokeswoman Jodi Ball wouldn’t comment on Clowe’s status with the hospital, citing confidential personnel information.

Clowe’s attorney Paul Rogosheske, says he was convicted for having sexual contact with an underage girl but the conviction was later expunged and he wasn’t required to register.

    I am surprised everyone isn’t a sex offender already. Just seeing someone underage naked will get you locked up now of days. A lot of women out there seem to think a male is a sex offender.

      Your last sentence made no sense.

      You have the thought process of a sex offender. Have fun at Moose Lake.

    I think the sex offender registry is so ugly women can brag about having a can of pepper spray.

    “The records don’t detail the nature of the offense. ” I can’t say either way if this is BS since I don’t know specifically WHAT he did. But…doctor or not anyone is capable of being a creep.

    An adult male simply CAN NOT have sexual contact with a minor female and not espect to be punished. And as for having a sex-related conviction expunged…well, I don’t like the sound of that. If the crime happened in 2002, the good doctor would have been 22…a med student at best. How did he manage you pull off becoming an MD?
    We are obviously not getting all the facts here.
    And let me guess…he’s an OB/GYN. Ha! Oops…too soon? .

      Yes, only an adult female can do that…
