Today, May 9, 2018, in Muscatine County District Court:

RAMIRO ISAAC MORALES, 34, of Muscatine pleaded guilty to domestic abuse assault as a second offense and two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The Muscatine Police Department responded to an incident on February 25, 2018, where MORALES was observed striking the mother of his two minor children. During subsequent investigation officers located two handguns in a bag that contained an article of mail addressed to MORALES. One of the firearms was determined to be stolen. MORALES was convicted of the felony offense of sexual abuse in the third degree in 2003.

The sentencing of MORALES will be scheduled at a later date. MORALES also admitted that he violated the terms of probation in two prior cases.
