An Alton man has been sentenced to probation for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl in 2013.  61-year-old George Partridge of the 2300 block of Edwardsville Road was sentenced this week to two years probation and must also undergo sexual offender treatment.

Charges were filed in February against Partridge after the victim told her grandmother, who then called police.  He had no similar previous convictions, but had been convicted twice of DUI, as well as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and five misdemeanors.
