(MARYVILLE, Mo.) A Maryville man has been sentenced to five years in prison for the statutory rape of a 12-year-old.

The sentence was handed down to Isaiah Ferguson, 18, in Nodaway County Court on Monday.

Ferguson pleaded guilty to first-degree statutory rape in April.

Charges were filed against Ferguson in Feburary. According to court documents, Ferguson had sexual intercourse with the child twice in 2018.

Prosecutors argued for a 15-year sentence while Ferguson's attorneys recommended probation due to his age and first-time offense.

Thursday we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will be with us as highs will be in the lower 30s on Thursday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s.
