Sex Offender Sentenced

A Kirksville man is on his way to a seven-year prison term, after being sentenced yesterday for child abuse. Daniel Coy admitted in December he molested a 13-year old boy last summer. Coy faced a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison; Adair County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Wilson asked for 10 years while Coy’s attorney asked for probation. Coy will first goto the Sex offender Assessment Unit, and depending on that agency’s findings he may be eligible to be paroled in about four months.
