MASON CITY | A Mason City man who assaulted two dependent adults while working as their caretaker was sentenced to up to four years in prison Monday.

Wasfie Ahmed Alshara, 19, pleaded guilty in August to two counts of misdemeanor assault with intent to commit sexual abuse.

Alshara will serve two sentences of up to two years in prison with credit for time served and two $625 suspended fines.  The sentences will be served consecutively.

He will also serve a 10 year special sentence under the supervision of the Iowa Department of Corrections, similar to parole, and is required to register as a sex offender.

Two no contact orders were filed in the case after sentencing.

Alshara was initially charged with two counts of felony third-degree sexual abuse in June, but the charges were lowered in a plea agreement in August from the Floyd County attorney, who is serving as special prosecutor after the Cerro Gordo County Attorney's Office said it had a conflict of interest in the case.
