Ex-Missouri deputy to get 14 years for forcing sex act

KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) - A former Missouri sheriff's deputy has agreed to a 14-year sentence in federal prison for forcing a 15-year-old girl to perform a sex act on him in a squad car.

Thirty-6-year-old Steven Burgess was scheduled to be sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City.

The former Jackson County deputy received five years' probation when he was sentenced in state court two years ago for the same incident.

Federal prosecutors didn't think the sentence fit the crime, so they charged Burgess with violating the girl's civil rights. He pleaded guilty in November.

The crime occurred in the summer of 2007.
