A Muscatine County jury found a Davenport man guilty of attacking his ex-girlfriend, and the man faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.

Joshua Corwin, 32, was convicted July 1, 2014 of first-degree sexual abuse, willful injury and second-degree theft after a seven-day trial in Muscatine County Court.

Prosecutor Alan Ostergren said Corwin’s ex-girlfriend suffered five facial fractures when he assaulted her and forced her to have sex with him May 15, 2013.  Ostergren said Corwin also drove a car he stole in Davenport to get to the victim’s Muscatine County home.

“Corwin faces a mandatory sentence of life without the possibility of parole,” Ostergren said.

Corwin was scheduled to be sentenced September 5, 2014.  He was held in the Muscatine County Jail.
