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 55-year-old David Acker Burr 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 (http://bit.ly/15Yjxpj) 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.
