Cavour Man Sentenced For Abusing Girl At Wife's Day Care

Cavour Man Sentenced For Abusing Girl At Wife's Day Care

A Cavour man was sentenced on Friday after he was found guilty of sexual contact with a child under 16 years old.

52-year-old Fred Sylaart was sentenced to 90 days in jail for sexually abusing a girl at a home day care run by his wife in September of 2012.

Prosecutor Dawn Elshere argued Sylaart should be given the minimum 10-year mandatory sentence required by state law.

But Judge Tim Tucker agreed to allow Sylaart to serve the sentence at the Beadle County Regional Correctional Facility as part of the suspended execution of sentence requested by his attorney David Wheeler. That means Sylaart will not have to go to the state penitentiary for the crime, as long as no other laws are broken.

Sylaart was also given work release while in jail and will be on probation for more than two years. He must also pay $2,000 in fines, court costs and victim counseling. 

Sylaart's son Jordan was also accused of the same crime and sentenced in May, receiving a suspended execution of sentence on a three-year penitentiary term.  He served 90-days in the Beadle County Jail and has since been released.
