Augusta Man Sentenced to 2 Years for Child Molestation

Posted: Updated:

An Augusta County man who admitted molesting a young girl is on his way to prison.

Eugene Sidney Monroe, 72, had already pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery. 

State sentencing guidelines called for no more than three months, but Judge Victor Ludwig ordered Monroe to serve two years, saying "I can't let an old guy in bad health have a free ride."

Prosecutors say Monroe repeatedly abused the victim in the 1990s, starting when she was just four years old.
