A former state trooper has been formally charged with second-degree sexual abuse. 39-year-old Karl Kluender (rhymes thunder) was formally charged this week in Crawford County district court. The Huxley man was fired from his job with the State Patrol earlier this month, following an investigation into allegations that he sexually abused his 7-year-old niece at his parents’ Denison apartment back in 1993. Kluender’s free on bond though he’s restricted to Story County, where he lives, except for trips to Des Moines to see his attorney and to Crawford County for future court appearances. Kluender’s scheduled to be arraigned in Crawford County District Court on May 16.
