BLOOMFIELD, MO (KFVS) - A man found guilty by jury of statutory rape has learned his fate.

David Madsen was sentenced in Stoddard County to life in prison on Monday, April 22 by Judge Robert Nayer.

Madsen was found guilty of the crime on February 14, according to the Stoddard County prosecuting attorney’s office.

The jury deliberated for 15 minutes before reaching the verdict.

“We are very pleased with the sentence handed down by Judge Mayer," said Prosecuting Attorney Russell Oliver. "It is a very appropriate disposition given the defendant’s status as a registered sex offender prior to the commission of this new sexual crime against a child. Due to the sensitive nature of this crime and to protect the identity of the victim, no further statement concerning this case will be made by the Office of Prosecuting Attorney”
