MASON CITY – A Man listed by Mason City police as one of their most wanted individuals is now set to return to prison after a previous assault arrest in the Cultural Crescent.

He was apprehended and charged with serious domestic assault in that incident and has entered a guilty plea to second offense domestic assault, despite numerous previous convictions. He will be sentenced October 8.
Garcia also pled guilty on July 29 to two counts of felony domestic assault, incidents that took place on two separate occasions in April. He will be sentenced on October 8. In connections with this charge, Garcia was sentenced to serve 161 days in jail to one count of violating the no-contact order in the case. He had been accused of 23 violations.
