A criminal mischief fourth degree is described as “the cost of replacing, repairing, or restoring the property that is damaged, defaced, altered, or destroyed exceeds $200, but does not exceed $500,” according to section six of Chapter 716 of the Iowa Legislative. It also says in section six that “criminal mischief in the fourth degree is a serious misdemeanor.”

Since it’s considered a serious misdemeanor, the sentence is as follows, “for a serious misdemeanor, there shall be a fine of at least $315, but not to exceed $1,875. In addition, the court may also order imprisonment not to exceed one year,” according to section one of Chapter 903 of the Iowa Legislative.

His status for the upcoming football game at Kansas State this Saturday is still unknown. 

Peavy is a starting cornerback for Iowa State. He has 75 total tackles, third on the team, along with two interceptions and two fumble recoveries on the season. 

If Peavy doesn’t play on Saturday, redshirt junior De’Monte Ruth would be next, according to the newest Iowa State depth chart.
