ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP and Post) — 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.

As we previously reported, court documents accused Briggs of abusing a 7-year-old child over the span of five years.

He was working for the Missouri Department of Corrections before his arrest.
