Mason City man given suspended prison sentence for lascivious acts with a child charges

CHARLES CITY — It’s a suspended prison sentence and probation for a Mason City man accused of sexually abusing two children.

24-year-old Aaron Wells was charged last September with two counts of second-degree sexual abuse and two counts of lascivious acts with a child after being accused of abusing two children under the age of 10  while he lived in Floyd County between 2012 and 2013.

As part of a plea agreement with prosecutors, Wells pleaded guilty to the two lascivious acts counts while the two sexual abuse counts were dismissed.

District Judge Rustin Davenport this week sentenced Wells to a total of up to ten years in prison, with the prison term being suspended, and ordered him to serve five years probation.
