THE IOWA COURT OF APPEALS HAS UPHELD THE CONVICTIONS OF A LE MARS MAN CONVICTED OF BURGLARY AND ASSAULT CHARGES IN 2012, BUT REDUCED HIS SENTENCE.

MATTHEW JANDREAU WAS CONVICTED OF 1ST DEGREE BURGLARY, 3RD DEGREE KIDNAPPING, ASSAULT WITH INTENT TO COMMIT SEXUAL ABUSE, ATTEMPTED BURGLARY, OPERATING A MOTOR VEHICLE WITHOUT OWNER’S CONSENT AND CRIMINAL MISCHIEF.

HE WAS CHARGED IN A SERIES OF THREE INCIDENTS AT LE MARS RESIDENCES ON MARCH 2ND OF 2012 AND SENTENCED TO SERVE 40 YEARS IN PRISON.

DURING THE THIRD INCIDENT, JANDREAU HAD BROKEN INTO A HOME, ASSAULTED AN 11 YEAR OLD GIRL, AND REMOVED SOME OF HER CLOTHING.

THE COURT OF APPEALS MERGED THE 1ST DEGREE BURGLARY AND ATTEMPTED SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES, AND ORDERED THE 5 YEAR SENTENCE FOR THE ATTEMPTED ASSAULT STRICKEN FROM HIS SENTENCE.

THAT DECISION REDUCES HIS SENTENCE TO 35 YEARS IN PRISON.

THE APPEALS COURT ALSO RULED THAT JANDREAU RECEIVED INEFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE FOR POSSIBLE POST CONVICTION RELIEF PROCEEDINGS.
