Jury convicts Davenport man of sexually abusing girl


A Scott County Jury on Thursday found a Davenport man guilty of sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl.

Chadwick Allen Puckett, 48, of 3724 W. Lombard St., was found guilty of one count each of second-degree sexually abusing a child, lascivious acts with a child and indecent contact with a child.

Puckett faces a prison sentence of 25 years in prison for the second-degree sexual abuse conviction, five years in prison on the lascivious acts with a child conviction, and two years in prison for the indecent contact with a child conviction.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Davenport Police officer Jonathon Douglas, an investigation began April 10, 2018, after a complaint was received.

According to the affidavit, at about 9 p.m. on Feb. 4, 2018, the victim was sleeping on a couch in Puckett’s home when he sexually abused her.

A child witness who was sleeping on an adjacent couch watched Puckett sit on a coffee table and begin abusing the victim.

Puckett is being held in the Scott County Jail pending a sentencing hearing which has been scheduled for Nov. 21 in Scott County District Court.
