ORIGINAL

A Davenport man who was convicted of making meth inside a daycare home, will be back in court this week to possibly face a new sentence.

Dale Blumer pleaded guilty to manufacturing methamphetamines and endangering the welfare of a child. Its was part of a plea deal, but instead of incarceration, Blumer was put on probation for the maximum time allowed, which is five years.

Now, the Scott County Assistant Attorney Kelly Cunningham is asking for a correction in sentencing. She believes the conviction deserves prison time. A hearing has been set for 10 a.m. Thursday, August 29, 2013.

Blumer admitted to making the drug in this Davenport home last year, when it was still operating as the Amanda Taylor Child Care business. The former owner of the day care, Amanda Taylor, was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The mother of a 4 year old boy who was in the daycare at the time of Blumer's arrest, talked to us when Blumer was sentenced. She says probation is not enough punishment.

"I do think he should have had some time in prison. It's not justice. They don't know the effects its going to have on my son."
