CLAYTON — A St. Louis County man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually abusing two children younger than 14.
James Brockman, 66, pleaded guilty Thursday to statutory sodomy/attempted statutory sodomy, statutory rape and sodomy.
Authorities said Brockman, between November 2018 and April 2019, had sex with an 8-year-old girl at his home in the 15500 block of Chaste Street in unincorporated St. Louis County near Florissant. Charges said he sexually abused another child between 1990 and 1993.
Court records say Circuit Judge Kristine Kerr sentenced Brockman to a seven-year term for statutory sodomy, a six-year term for statutory rape and a five-year term for sodomy, all to run consecutively, with credit for jail time served.
Brockman's lawyer could not be reached.
