A 21-year-old Charles City man convicted of the murder and sexual abuse of his 3-year-old cousin while he was still a juvenile may not be spending the rest of his life in prison after all.
Edgar Concepcion Jr., who was 14 at the time of the murder of Krystel Banes of Charles City in July 2009, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole in November 2010.
He was re-sentenced Thursday to life in prison with the possibility of parole due to recent changes in the law regarding penalties for those convicted of serious crimes committed when they were juveniles.
“Life with parole does not necessarily mean you are ever going to get out of prison,” District Court Judge James Drew told Concepcion during the re-sentencing hearing in Floyd County District Court.
He said it is up to the Iowa Board of Parole if Concepcion is ever released and when that might happen.PauseCurrent Time0:00/Duration Time0:00Stream TypeLIVELoaded: 0%Progress: 0%0:00Fullscreen00:00Mute
“None of us has got a crystal ball,” he said.
A jury found Concepcion guilty in June 2010 of first-degree murder, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree sexual abuse and child endangerment.
In November 2010 Concepcion was sentenced to life on the murder and first-degree sexual abuse convictions. He was sentenced to up to 25 years in prison for second-degree sexual abuse and up to five years for child endangerment.
In January 2014 the Iowa Court of Appeals ordered that Concepcion be resentenced on all the convictions except the one for child endangerment.
The state appeals court ordered the re-sentencing because of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that states cannot automatically sentence juveniles to life without parole without considering the circumstances of each case based on the age of the juvenile, the nature of the crime and other factors.
