IOWA CITY, Iowa — A 30-year-old Iowa City man cursed a judge and threatened the mother of his victims as he was being sentenced to life in prison without parole for sexually assaulting two young girls. 

Jorge Maldonado was sentenced Monday, Nov. 29 for the abuse of girls who were ages 9 and 12 when the abuse occurred in 2019.
