SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (WDAF) -- Larry McConnell, 70, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Friday, Jan. 24, following his November convictions of three counts of second-degree statutory sodomy and one count of second-degree rape.

Investigators said that during his time as the chief, McConnell repeatedly raped a young woman at his farm and at the fire station. Court documents showed that the woman told investigators McConnell forced her to have sex with him for more than a year.

The victim testified during the trial that McConnell would perform sex acts on her on Wednesday nights when his wife was at church, according to a previous report.

Until his conviction, McConnell had been the chief of the Brookline Fire Department for 20 years.
