CARROLLTON TEEN PLEADS GUILTY TO AMENDED SEX-RELATED CHARGE INVOLVING JUVENILE

A Carrollton teen who was charged with a sex-related felony involving a juvenile changed his plea to an amended charge during a hearing on Tuesday, May 14, at Carroll County Circuit Court.

According to a probable-cause statement, a juvenile told authorities that Corbin Lee Gilmer, who is now 18 years old, engaged in a sexual act with them around May 20, 2018. Gilmer originally denied the accusation but then reportedly told authorities in detail what happened.

According to online court documents, Gilmer originally was charged with an Unclassified Felony for Statutory Sodomy or Attempted Statutory Sodomy. Gilmer pleaded not guilty during a hearing on June 4; and waived his preliminary hearing on September 12, and his case was bound over to circuit court. He again pleaded not guilty during a hearing on October 9.

During his latest hearing, as part of a plea deal, Gilmer pleaded guilty to a Class C Felony of Child Molestation in the Third Degree- with a Child Less Than 14 Years of Age.

Gilmer waived a sentencing assessment report, and was sentenced to seven years in the Missouri Department of Corrections.
