Today, February 18, 2014, in Muscatine County District Court ANDREW SCOTT MAYFIELD, DOB: 6/29/1984, of Muscatine, pled guilty to Lascivious Acts with a Child and Sex Offender Registration Violation.
Investigation by the Muscatine Police Department showed that the defendant fondled a preschool aged child. MAYFIELD had absconded from registration requirements in the State of Illinois due to a juvenile court proceeding in that state involving a sex offense.
"I am pleased that the defendant entered a guilty plea to this offense and that we were able to spare a very young child from having to testify in court," said Muscatine County Attorney Alan R. Ostergren.
MAYFIELD will be sentenced April 19, 2014. He remains in the Muscatine County Jail pending sentencing.
