A 45-year-old Davenport man faces a felony charge after police say he committed sexual abuse on a 12-year-old.

Jason Heider faces a charge of second-degree sexual abuse, Scott County Jail records say.

Another person “aided and abetted the act” by being present and taking photos of the act shortly after 11:30 a.m. Jan. 18 in Davenport, an arrest affidavit says.

Heider had a cell phone with messages “admitting to the sex acts with the victim.” The messages also discussed another person present during the acts, the affidavit says.

Punishment for the charge, a Class B felony, is a prison sentence of up to 25 years.

After he appeared before a judge Friday, Heider is being held on $25,000 bond in Scott County Jail.
