17-year-old Isaiah Lewis, who currently is being held in the Central Iowa Juvenile Detention Center in Eldora , pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of first-degree robbery. Lewis, along with 18-year-old Samuel Swanson and 20-year-old Kyren-Ray Valentine, were accused of being involved in a July 31st robbery at a rural location near Klemme where allegedly guns were fired and some of the party’s participants were robbed of personal items.
First-degree robbery is a Class B felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison, with a mandatory minimum of 17-and-a-half years. Lewis is scheduled to be sentenced on January 23rd. V
alentine’s trial was originally scheduled to start today, but online court records show a continuance was granted late last month, with the trial now scheduled for a January 10th start.
Swanson pleaded guilty in the case back in October. He was scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday but that hearing has been continued to December 19th.
