Cedar Rapids police have arrested a 44-year-old man and filed an array of charges against him — charges dealing with pornography, prostitution and pot. Police started their investigation of Randal Mauderer in mid-March after receiving complaints about his conduct. He turned himself in to police on Monday.
According to investigators, Mauderer showed a 15-year-old boy photographs of naked males engaged in sexual activities, photographs that were on Mauderer’s computer.
Police say Mauderer also offered a 15-year-old boy money in exchange for a sex act and he gave marijuana to a teenager on a number of occasions. All of these incidents happened at a home in Cedar Rapids where Mauderer had been living, but he’s no longer living there. He’s in the Linn County Jail right now, charged with some serious crimes including dissemination of obscene materials to a minor.
