BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) -- A former suburban Kansas City youth soccer coach was sentenced to 15 years in prison for molesting three young girls.
Forty-four-year-old Richard G. Burroughs of Blue Springs was sentenced Monday for three counts of first-degree child molestation. Two of the girls he molested played on his soccer team.
The Kansas City Star reports that Burroughs apologized in Jackson County Circuit Court before he was sentenced.
Authorities said Burroughs molested the girls at his home, at a team party and at the home of family friends.
