DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) - A sex offender, who was ordered released by the Iowa Supreme Court, will stay behind bars after pleading guilty to a separate assault charge at the Mental Health Institute in Cherokee, Iowa.
Anthony Geltz pleaded guilty to assaulting an employee at the Cherokee facility, and was sentenced to a prison term that lasts until May 20.
The 20-year-old was placed in the Cherokee facility in April 2012 after a court ordered that he be committed for treatment as a sexually violent predator.
Last month, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled the state couldn't keep Geltz committed under the law because his sexual abuse offenses came as a juvenile.
