46-year-old man gets 20 years for taking teen on interstate road trip


SANTA ANA, Calif. (KYMA, KECY/AP) — In California, a convicted sex offender has been sentenced for 20 years in prison for taking a 15-year-old girl on a three-month road trip where he gave her meth and was involved with her sexually.

In May 2020, Kenneth Wayne Fischer, of Colorado Springs, Colorado pleaded guilty to multiple charges such as transportation of a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The 46-year-old man was ordered by U.S. District Judge David O. Carter to be placed on lifetime supervised release after he finishes his sentence in prison.

Fischer met the teen back in 2015 and took her through various states and was arrested at a traffic stop in Fountain Valley, California where the police discovered sexually explicit images of the young girl on his cellphone, according to the prosecutors.

While on the road trip, Fischer committed bank robberies in Kansas and Arkansas and was convicted of those crimes and Judge Carter on Tuesday ordered his sentence to run consecutive to his bank robbery sentence.

Fischer was also convicted of a misdemeanor charge of sexual abuse in the second degree which required him to register as a sex offender in February 2000.
