An Independence man received a 25-year prison sentence Thursday for sexually abusing two girls under age 12.
Charles C. Hill, 37, had been charged in Platte County Circuit Court with three counts of statutory sodomy.
“Today there is one less dangerous sexual predator on the streets of Platte County,” said Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd, who thanked members of the Western Missouri Cyber Crimes Task Force for their work in investigating Hill.
Task force members found child pornography in Hill’s Independence residence in 2011.
Later, a 25-year-old woman told Kansas City police investigators that Hill had sexually abused her years before. Also, a 15-year-old girl reported to the Platte County Sheriff’s Department that Hill had sexually abused her on multiple occasions when she was between 8 and 10 years old.
