Konz pleads guilty, is sentenced

Knoxville —

Jack Dylan Konz was sentenced earlier this morning in District Court, following a guilty plea. Konz had previously entered a not gulity plea, but withdrew the former for a plea of guilty. Konz also waived his right to a pre-sentence investigation report and the 15-day period between plea and sentencing.
 
Konz plead guilty to second-degree robbery, a Class C felony, and Possession of contraband inside a correction facility. He was sentenced to 10 years (maximum) on the robbery charge, with 70 percent of that sentence being mandatory to serve. He received a five-year sentence for the contraband offense. Both charges will be served concurrently. Konz will also receive no less that 157 days off this sentence for time already served. 
 
As previously reported, Konz was suspected in a Feb. 21 robbery of a bank in Pella. His alleged co-conspirator, Christian Michael Latshaw, has already plead guilty and been sentenced on a robbery charge.
 
"I hope this sends a strong message," Marion County Attorney Ed Bull said. "Regardless of who you are or where you are from if you committ crimes the County, you are going to have consequences for your behavior. People were in fear of being injured or being killed."
