Belvidere man sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting a child

BELVIDERE (WREX) — A Belvidere man will spend 16 years in prison for sexually assaulting a child, according to the Boone County State's Attorney's Office.

Last week, Efren Gerardo, 33 of Belvidere, pleaded guilty to predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.

Judge John Young sentenced him to 16 years in prison and he must serve at least 85 percent of that sentence, 3 years of probation, and must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
