An 18-year-old Moline man’s five-year prison sentence for lascivious acts with a child was suspended Thursday in Scott County District Court, Davenport.
Scott County District Judge Mark Cleve placed Bryce A. Moreno on three years of probation for the Class D felony. Cleve also ordered Moreno to register as an Iowa sex offender.
One count of third-degree sex abuse was dismissed at his sentencing.
Moreno admitted at a plea hearing last month to “smacking” the 13-year-old victim for the purpose of sexual satisfaction. The act occurred at least once in July 2011, when Moreno was 17 years old.
