Former Fort Leonard Wood man sentenced for sexual abuse of a child
SPRINGFIELD - A Vermont man was sentenced Thursday to 30 years and four months in federal prison without parole for sexually abusing a child in Fort Leonard Wood.
Paul Kickery, Sr., 68, pleaded guilty in January to aggravated sexual abuse of a child.
The victim reported that Kickery sexually assaulted her multiple times from July 2013 to July 2014. She was six years old at the time, and she and Kickery both lived on Army base at Fort Leonard Wood.
Kickery admitted the abuse and said he also molested a 15-year-old in Vermont and watched child pornography online.
Police in Brattleboro, Vermont, where Kickery is from, investigated the case with the FBI.
