Man guilty of sex abuse jailed for pre-sentencing violation

October 3, 2018

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Mason City man convicted of sex abuse counts involving dependent adults he was hired to care for has been jailed for violating pre-sentencing rules.

The Globe Gazette reports that 19-year-old Wasfie Ahmed Alshara is behind bars after court documents say had alcohol on Sept. 29, which he was not supposed to have under the rules.

Alshara pleaded guilty in August to two counts of misdemeanor assault with intent to commit sexual abuse. Prosecutors lowered the charges of felony sexual abuse in exchange for Alshara’s pleas. Investigators accused him of raping a dependent client last November and sexually assaulting another in a group home on June 8.

He’s set to be sentenced on Nov. 19.
