Sarcoxie man sentenced for sexual exploitation of 11-year-old girl

A Sarcoxie man was sentenced to 20 years in prison today in U. S. District Court in Springfield for sexual exploitation of an 11-year-old girl.

The sentencing of Brian Florian-Palma, 43, had originally been scheduled for January 24, but was postponed when Florian-Palma came down with flu-like symptoms.

Florian-Palma, 43, pleaded guilty May 30 to the sex charge. He is already serving a 15-year sentence on federal meth trafficking and weapons charges.

Florian-Palma was reported to authorities by his girlfriend, a Joplin woman, after she discovered suspicious photos on his phone, according to the plea agreement.

Hey, Theresa , this is how it’s done. 20 years. What’s that, about 3 in Jasper county with 2 of them suspended? The feds don’t play games like you.
