CHARLES CITY – A Charles City man was finally sentenced in a sex abuse case after an incident that took place in 2013.

Barry Jerome Holden, age 30, was sentenced in Floyd county district court for alleged crimes that took place in Charles City in 2013. Charles City police arrested Holden on July 5, 2013 after a call from a residence at the 2100 block of Clarkview Drive for a domestic assault. Holden was charged with felony B first degree burglary, felony C sexual abuse, and felony D assault with intent to commit sexual abuse. All those charges were later dismissed without prejudice – which means the state could file them again – because a witness in the case was unable to participate in the trial. Holden had pled not guilty. He later faced charges of felony B first-degree burglary, felony C third-degree sexual abuse, and felony D assault with intent to commit sexual abuse after prosecutors re-filed the charges.

Last week, a judge dismissed charges of felony B first-degree burglary and felony C third-degree sexual abuse. Holden pled guilty to a charge of assault with intent to commit sexual abuse. He was sentenced to 2 years probation, a suspended 2 year prison term, and he must submit a DNA sample as well as register as a sex offender for 10 years. He must also pay $2,187.90 in court costs.
