Donald R. Barker was sentenced Dec. 20, 2012, to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing a child under the age of 12.
Barker was arrested Oct. 2, 2012. He was charged with three counts of sexual abuse with a victim under the age of 12 and one count of sodomy first degree with a child under the age of 12.
As part of his sentence, Barker will have to complete a sex offender treatment program with the Department of Corrections, he will have five years conditional discharge (which means if he gets into trouble within five years after being released he could get five more years added), he can never have contact with the victim in the future, and he will be listed on the Lifetime Sex Offender Registry.
According to Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Justin Crocker, Barker will have to serve 20 percent of his sentence, which means he would be up for parole in four years.
