A Davenport man was sentenced to 15 years in prison and will have to register as a sex offender after convictions for child molestation and robbery, according to court records updated this week.

Bobby Dean Matejcek, 24, 1995 W. 40th St., Apartment 419, was one of five people who were accused last year of luring a man to a bike path where they beat and robbed him. The four adult suspects pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges. A juvenile’s case is pending.

Matejcek also pleaded guilty to an unrelated count of third-degree sex abuse. Records state that when he was 23, he had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old female runaway from October 2011 to January 2012.

The victim also conceived Matejcek's child, records state.

Three of the others convicted in the robbery conspiracy also lived with Matejcek in his apartment. They are Ashley Marie Cummings, 19, Kelly Elizabeth Hobert, 20, and Timothy Michael McGauley Jr., 25.

Also charged in the conspiracy is Tyler Overmann, 16, who is listed at a different address in Davenport. His case was transferred to juvenile court in January.

The conspiracy charge is a Class C felony that would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Instead, Magistrate Mark Lawson deferred Cummings’ sentence and placed her on three years of probation.

Hobert and McGauley also were sentenced to three years of probation.

They were arrested Nov. 7 related to the incident that occurred Sept. 17. Court records state that at 1:24 p.m., a female called the victim and asked him to meet her at Northwest Park, 3400 N. Division St. She then sent text messages to the others about the victim's arrival at the park.

According to arrest affidavits, both of the women charged walked the victim to the bike path, where the three males of the group confronted him. One of the men threatened to shoot the victim and ordered him to the ground, where he was kicked, beaten and struck with a large stick.

The man's backpack, which contained $50 as well as clothing, a cellphone, a sketchbook and other items, was taken, the affidavits state. The man was told to remain on the ground or he would be shot.

First of all i beleive he got what he deserves but really you people have no clue about the prison industry they dont get 3 hot meals a dayas a.matter of fact they get one hot meal inmates are fed for Pennies a day and they get wat they pay for they dont have cable and can't get computers and won't be able to sit in his cell all dayhr will.be forced.to.work 8 to 10 hours a day for.20 cents an hour yea he probably will be out in 7 years due to good time earned not overcrowding iowa dont care bout that but he will be on parole and have to register for life im so tired of hearing how easy people have it in prison i see every day how easy its not for them


What are you even talking about. I've known this man since I was child. He's a weirdo just like you maybe you should go away together. Do not sit here and defend some idiot who you dont even know. They're lucky they even get to have jobs and YEAH he needs to register as a sex offender, where did you come from? You want this weirdo to come find your kids and lure them to a bike path and kill them? How about you go to prison and you let us know how you feel after a week. You are dumb and ignorant. maybe you belong in cell just like this moron.

Excellent idea Klaatu.


I think it is time for a change in strategy for crime prevention. Bring back corporal punishment for assaults that don't involve sex crimes and for theft. Give him ten hard lashes and make him get a job and work and pay restitution to his victim. Ban him from any form of public aid for a period of time. Sex offenders should get their own version of the old French Devils Island. Put those people on an inaccessible place with others just like them and leave them there.

15 years is a joke! This animal will be out on the street in less than half of that with a new PHD in criminal behavior he will learn in prison.


I agree with you. They will use the excuse that the prison is "overcrowded" and allow him to be on probation and sent to a halfway house. This is always a "joke." What rehab do they get? They are sitting in a cell, watching cable t.v. and eating 3 hot meals a day. They can even get on computers if they want. The elderly in nursing homes aren't treated as well as prisoners in our penal system.


Not to mention that all his accomplices got off with probation. For beating and robbing a man at gunpoint.
