SEX OFFENDERS: Supreme Court Makes Juvenile Ruling

Anthony geltz

The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that adults can’t be classified as a sexual predator for crimes committed as a juvenile.

The ruling comes from the case involving Anthony Geltz.

In 2007, Geltz escaped from a Davenport juvenile home and sexually assaulted a child at a restaurant.

Geltz was 14 at the time. He was sent to Eldora on second-degree sexual assault charges where he was disciplined a dozen times for sexual misconduct.

When he turned 18 the state tried to keep him locked up as a sexual predator. But the Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that his sexual assault charge as a juvenile cannot carry over to a conviction as an adult.

    Why can’t Iowa have the death penalty for people like that? I don’t care how old the punk was he still committed the crime. Gee another slap on the wrist for a baby raper.
