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.

    Life without parole IS harsh for a grown person to do it to another grown person when you think about the fact life without parole would have never even been thought of if this were done to a small child. If we wont hand out these types of sentences to child rapists why should we hand them out for raping an adult. I’m not saying I agree with what he did, I’m just saying if it’s good for some shouldn’t it be good for all? Or just maybe we could try handing out these sentences to ALL!!!!!
