Poole Franklin arrives in court for a hearing on several charges including attempted murder on Monday morning, Dec. 30, 2019, at the Polk County Criminal Courthouse in Des Moines.
“In her mind these people were invading our country and taking our homes and jobs,” Sheeley said. “She was severely mentally ill, but she was not clinically insane.
“I’m not offering this as an excuse for what she did, but it’s a partial explanation,” he said.
‘This was a heinous crime’
Judge Scott Beattie agreed to accept the terms of a plea agreement made between Poole’s attorneys and Polk County Attorney John Sarcone. Under Iowa law she must serve at least 17.5 years of her 25-year term.
Federal prosecutors have recommended she be allowed to serve her federal prison term concurrently with the state one.
Beatie acknowledged the terrible nature of the crime, but also said it was clear that Poole was under delusions at the time.
“This was a heinous crime that had a tremendous impact on two young people,” Beattie said. “Nothing that I can do here will fix that.”
