Alton Man Gets 18 Years in Sex Attack of Five Year Old Girl
Thirty-four-year-old David Armstrong was sentenced Wednesday in Madison County.
Armstrong and his wife, 23-year-old Danielle Armstrong, pleaded guilty in May to a charge of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child.
Danielle Armstrong was sentenced last week to 20 years, two years more than her husband.
The couple has been jailed since they were charged in July 2012 with molesting the girl, who was then 5 years old. Authorities say the abuse took place between July 2011 and July of last year.
