A Ferguson man was sentenced to 24 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl who was 7 to 9 years old during the assaults. The assaults took place in a home in Berkely.
Dzevad Karabegovic, 26, of Ferguson, pleaded guilty July 12 to 10 counts of first-degree statutory sodomy. The sexual assaults took place while Karabegovic was staying at the girl’s residence, police said.
St. Louis County prosecutors said Karabegovic sexually abused the girl from April 1, 2007 through Sept. 30, 2009.
Prosecutors requested that Karabegovic receive 25 years in prison. St. Louis County Circuit Court Judge Tom W. De Priest Jr. sentenced Karabegovic Friday.
Karabegovic previously lived in the 900 block of Second Street in St. Charles.
