Dubuque Teen Faces Prison Time

A Dubuque teenager is looking at a decade-and-a-half in prison after he pleaded guilty to charges related to a shooting incident in the city nearly a year ago. 17 year old Emmanuel Fountain Jr. was initially charged with attempted murder, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charges of going armed with intent and intimidation with a dangerous weapon. Court records say that Fountain and his brother were involved in a shooting in May of last year in the area of East 18th and White Streets. Police say they shot at another teen who was able to escape. Last year Fountain’s brother, who was also charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to the same reduced charges. He was placed on probation. When he is sentenced next month Fountain faces up to 15 years in prison. His mother, who was also involved when she drove the boys to and from the shooting scene, has pleaded not guilty to being an accessory after the fact. She will next appear in court on August 13th.
