Before Judge Paul D. Miller in Tama County District Court in Toledo:
Steven Clark McFate, 58, rural Toledo, entered an Alford Plea to two counts of lascivious acts with a child. The plea does not admit guilt on the part of the defendant but recognizes there is likely enough evidence to gain a conviction in court. McFate was sentenced to two five-year prison terms to be served concurrently and fined $500 on each charge. He was also assessed civil penalties totaling $500.
Six charges of sexual abuse were dismissed.
Prior to his release from prison, McFate must register on Sex Offender Registry.
He was originally charged in June and July, 2012, with four counts of 2nd degree sexual abuse, two counts of 3rd degree sexual abuse and two counts of lascivious acts with a child. The acts allegedly occurred during a period from 1995-99. The charges were filed by Tama County Deputy Sheriff Bruce Rhoads and in a County Attorney's information.
Allan Charles Lofquist, 30, Traer, was found guilty of violation of terms of probation. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for 2nd degree burglary, and a five-year term each on charges of 2nd degree theft and possession of a firearm as a felon. The terms are to be served consecutively.
In addition, the prison time is to be served concurrently with sentences in Black Hawk County fir 2nd degree theft and 3rd degree burglary.
Lofquist was charged in Tama County with a break-in at a rural Clutier residence on July 16, 2010 in which firearms were stolen.
Gregory Lloyd Proctor, 54, Traer, admitted violation of terms of probation. On five counts of supplying alcohol to persons under the legal age he was sentenced to six days in jail to be served concurrently and given credit for six days already served. He was also fined $315.
The sentences are also concurrent with those Proctor received for drunken driving and 4th degree criminal mischief.
