WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A former Waterloo man will remain in state custody for treatment under the state’s sexually violent predator statutes.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1KCck0x ) that a jury ruled last week that 53-year-old Bruce Baker must be committed for treatment. The Iowa attorney’s general office sought the commitment, saying Baker’s various mental disorders predispose him to carrying out future sex crimes.

Authorities say Baker choked a 15-year-old girl unconscious and sexually assaulted her in Scott County in 1985. After being released on parole in 1991, he kidnapped a woman.

Baker has finished his prison time, but he will be sent to a treatment unit for sex offenders that’s run by the Iowa Department of Human Services. He’ll receive treatment until he is deemed to no longer be at risk to reoffend.
