Linn Creek man gets 10 years for relationship with minor girl

Steven Goldsberry

A Lake-area man, who previously pleaded guilty to sex crimes involving a minor, is headed to prison.  

Steven Goldsberry, 29, of Linn Creek, was sentenced yesterday to a total of ten years.  He pleaded guilty last year to sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of statutory rape.  In exchange for his plea, 12 additional counts against him were dismissed.

Goldsberry was arrested in 2018 after it was learned he was having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
