Kollauf Pleads Guilty, Could Face Six Years
By Patrick Lynn
A 19 year-old man from Almond has pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault involving two 15 year-olds and a 14 year-old.
Prosecutors say they plan to ask for prison time against Tyler Kollauf, 19 of Almond. Kollauf was 17 at the time of sexual acts, but both victims say they felt pressured into having sex.
Kollauf pleaded guilty on Tuesday to one count of causing a child to view harmful material and three counts of sexual assault of a child less than 16 years old and. The assault charges carry a maximum of 40 years each in prison, though prosecutors plan to only ask for six years.
Kollauf also sent lewd texts, photos and videos to the girls, and may have sent the messages to several other girls as well. He remains in jail on a $10,000 cash bond and will be sentenced in October.
