Clayton man sentenced in sexual abuse case

Patrick Stabler, 37

A Clayton, Illinois man was sentenced to 360 days in jail and 3 years of probation on Tuesday.

Patrick Stabler, 37, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual abuse charges in January after authorities completed an investigation into a 2008 sexual abuse report against a 12-year-old girl.

Stabler will serve at least 270 days in jail. A review hearing is scheduled for December to determine whether he will serve the final 90 days of the sentence.

He originally pleaded not guilty to the charges in March but later changed his plea in May.
