BURNETT COUNTY -- A registered sex offender has been sentenced on new convictions of felony child abuse.

DrydenWire.com reported previously that Mitchell Butler was facing multiple charges of Class B Felony 1st Degree Child Sexual Assault - Intercourse with Person under 12.

The charges were filed after authorities received a report that Butler had sexually assaulted more than one child over a period of time in 2015.

Online circuit court records show that 2 the charges filed against Butler were amended to Class C Felony Child Abuse - Intentionally Cause Great Bodily Harm and Butler plead No Contest. The remaining charges against Butler were dismissed but read in.

At a recent hearing, Butler was sentenced on his convictions.

The Court ordered a 60-year sentence; 20-years of initial confinement on each conviction, to be served consecutively and followed by 10-years of extended supervision on each conviction.

Some of the requirements placed on Butler by the Court will require him to comply with the sex offender registry for life, maintain absolute sobriety, undergo sex offender treatment programming and undergo an Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment.
