ELSBERRY • A 22-year-old Elsberry man has pleaded guilty to felony witness tampering in a case from last August but a related statutory rape charge against him was dismissed.
Trever A. Sawyer, of the 500 block of North Fourth Street, was sentenced Tuesday in Lincoln County Circuit Court to at least 120 days in jail. After completion, a judge will re-evaluate Sawyer's sentence.
Police alleged that Sawyer had asked a 15-year-old girl in the case to lie about what happened.
