MACON — A Macon man was sentenced to prison Monday after he pleaded guilty to molesting a 4-year-old girl in 2016.

Dexter Jarrod Burnett, 31, must serve 20 years with the first 15 to be served in prison.

After his release, he must abide by sex offender conditions of probation.

Burnett pleaded guilty to child molestation during a hearing in Bibb County Superior Court.

Speaking after the hearing, Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney David Cooke said, “Mr. Burnett thought he’d get away with his perverted acts when he preyed upon a child that was too young to read. But even a 4-year-old knew what he did to her was wrong, and by coming forward she taught him a lesson about justice that he’ll never forget.”
