DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A guilty verdict from the jury Friday in the Scott Robinson kidnapping trial in Dubuque.

Prosecutors say Robinson forced a woman to stay in her apartment with him in October before abusing her.

According to KWWL coverage partners The Dubuque Telegraph Herald, prosecutors delivered the closing arguments, then Robinson's defense attorney tried to point out inconsistencies in evidence.

But after receiving the case, the jury agreed with prosecutors, quickly delivering a guilty verdict.
The jury did return to the courtroom once to review evidence. 

A first degree kidnapping conviction carries a life sentence in Iowa.
Sex abuse charges are encompassed in the kidnapping conviction.

Robinson's sentencing date is set for June 7th.
