A 23-year-old Bluford man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to one of two Class X felony charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13.
Branden Holt has been in the Jefferson County Jail since last August when he was arrested on a warrant charging the two offenses.
The victim had initially reported the incident to the Clay County Sheriff’s Department in 2018. Jefferson County took over the investigation after it was determined the incident had occurred in Jefferson County. Holt was not located to allow questioning until July of last year. A warrant was then sought for his arrest.
