Joseph Finn to Spend Up to 30 Years in Prison
DES MOINES Iowa -- On Friday, Joseph Finn, the adoptive father of 16-year-old Natalie Finn, asked a Polk County judge to show him mercy after he pleaded guilty to abusing his three adopted children. That's not what he received. "I'm not saying that I'm not at fault, the kids are 100% right. I accept any and all punishment that the court is going to levy here today,” Joseph Finn said. “I know I did wrong and I can’t take that back."
