ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul Hackner sentenced David Acker Burr, 55, of Baltimore on Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Burr had just completed probation for a sex offense against a girl when he molested the 12-year-old in August at her home. The Capital of Annapolis reports that Hackner cited Burr’s criminal history in going above sentencing guidelines, which called for 12 to 18 years.
Prosecutors say a friend had allowed Burr to sleep on the couch because he was too drunk to drive. Authorities say Burr went into the bedroom of the 12-year-old girl at the home and molested her.
