A QC Man Has Pleaded Guilty to Sexually Abusing a Child
The Dispatch-Argus reports that Davenport man Tavian Jordan Eicher, 20, pleaded guilty on Friday to sexually abusing a 4-year-old child.
Eicher faces up to 25 years in prison for second-degree sexual abuse. Incarceration is mandatory due to the charge being a forcible felony.
The Davenport PD opened an investigation of Eicher over the summer, which led to several disturbing discoveries.
Police said in arrest affidavits a witness found a video on Eicher’s cell phone of him sexually abusing the child, who appeared to be sleeping. Further investigation found there were two videos, 43 seconds and 38 seconds long respectively, on the phone recorded at 1:06 a.m. and 1:08 a.m. June 10, according to the affidavits.
Eicher was also facing two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor (a class C felony), but those charges have been dismissed. The case is being reviewed by the US Attorney's Office, who is considering pressing charges.
