(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.
