RICHLAND COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — An Olney man was sentenced to 60-years in prison for predatory sexual assault of a child.

Glenn Ramey, 54, was given the maximum sentence Thursday for the class X felony.

In November 2016, he was charged with the crime and first degree murder for the rape and suffocation of 8-year old Sabrina Stauffenberg.

Ramey’s guilty plea in January to predatory criminal sexual assault allowed the dismissal of the murder charge.

Prosecutors hoped Ramey would receive a sentence long enough to ensure he would spend the rest of his life behind bars.
