Former Fairfield man finds more trouble in prison

By Nicole Major, Ledger staff writer | Apr 27, 2017

A former Fairfield man serving a 20-year sentence in the Iowa State Penitentiary is currently under disciplinary detention, and will lose all of his earned time toward release after he and four other inmates were found in possession of synthetic cannabinoids.

Anthony Michael Koehlhoeffer, 27, is currently serving time in prison for several charges including four counts of second-degree robbery, one count of third-degree kidnapping and assault causing injury on a peace officer or others.

“Those are his current charges,” said Iowa Department of Corrections spokeswoman Lettie Prell, adding that after an IDC disciplinary hearing process, Koehlhoeffer and four other inmates, who are Justin Michael Carder, George Alan Deason, Martin Shane Moon and Ryan Nicholas Trowbridge, were found in violation of institutional rules.

According to a recent IDC press release, the inmates received disciplinary sanctions in connection with possession of or use of confirmed or apparent synthetic cannabinoids.

“The disciplinary detention is for 30 days,” Prell said.

Rebecca Bowker with the Iowa State Penitentiary said the detention would remove certain privileges afforded to the general prison population, such as no out of cell time and no certain personal property.

Bowker also said the inmates would lose earned time, which is established by Iowa Code.

Prell said Koehlhoeffer would lose 16 days of earned time.

Koehlhoeffer began his sentence on March 15, 2011, and he had a mandatory minimum to serve until Oct. 26, 2018.

His tentative release date is May 9, 2030.
