Convicted child molester gets 25 years

35-year-old Maurice Hogan was sentenced to 25 years following a guilty verdict for molesting a seven-year-old girl.

A convicted child molester was sentenced to 25 years in prison Monday after being found guilty last month of molesting a seven-year-old girl.

According to Cole County Prosecutor Mark Richardson, Cole County Presiding Circuit Judge Patricia Joyce sentenced 35-year-old Maurice Hogan to 25 years on the charge of first-degree child molestation and five years on the charge of sexual misconduct involving a child. The sentences will be served concurrently.

The case stemmed from Hogan's actions in the spring and summer of 2015.
