(Davenport, Iowa) Yesterday, 19-year-old local woman, Lindsey M. Brix, appeared for sentencing in Scott County District Court via video feed from the Scott County Jail.
Judge Nancy Tabor determined Brix was "too distraught" to appear in person.
With her lawyer sitting beside her, an arm wrapped around her back, Brix pleaded for probation "till I can stand on my own feet."After release from prison, Brix must register as a sex offender for 10 years.
Tabor refused and sentenced Brix to 10 years in prison. The judge combined two separate incidents from earlier this year, one involving the indecent contact in April and the other a theft on May 17.
While in custody at Scott County Jail since her arrest May 27, Brix has had numerous incidents of jail misconduct, has threatened other people and broken a window, Tabor said.
Even after pleading guilty earlier this month, Brix has continued to have problems at the jail, Tabor said.
"This community needs to be protected from your out-of-control behavior," Tabor told Brix.
