Former Missouri corrections officer sentenced to 30 years in prison

A former Missouri corrections officer will serve at least 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a minor.
35-year-old Roger Briggs of Polo pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree sodomy. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 30 years. A probable cause statement filed when Briggs was arrested in June accused him of abusing a 7-year-old child several times over five years.
