Carroll Man Files Seventh Appeal In 2010 Sexual Assault Conviction

Even after his own attorney filed a response in January that he could not provide a credible argument in a Carroll man’s sixth appeal, 26-year-old Jesse R. Neitzel has filed again. Neitzel appeared at that January hearing via phone and stated he agreed with his attorney’s response. He also said he would not resist the state’s motion to dismiss the appeal, but late last week, the District Court of Carroll County received a hand-written notice addressed to Iowa Attorney General, Thomas Miller, the Carroll County Attorney’s and the Clerk of Court’s offices. The notice did not provide any details on the grounds for the appeal, only that he is challenging the January ruling. In 2010, Neitzel was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison for the sexual assault of a seven year old when he was 16. This latest filing brings the total number of appeals to seven.
