Winthrop Man Sentenced for Lascivious Acts with Child

A Winthrop man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for lascivious acts with a child.

The Buchanan County Attorney’s Office says 36-year old Matthew Glenn Barth of Winthrop, formerly of Independence, was sentenced in Buchanan County District Court last Tuesday.

Barth pled guilty on November 2nd to three counts of Lascivious Acts with a Child for acts occurring on or between January 1, 2015 and September 2, 2019.

The Attorney’s Office says the acts consisted of Barth fondling or touching the genitals of a child, causing a child to fondle or touch his genitals and inflicting pain or discomfort upon a child – all for the purpose of arousing or satisfying his sexual desires.

Once his 25-year prison sentence is complete, Barth will be on the sex offender registry for life and remain under supervision as if on parole for the rest of his life. He was also ordered to pay various civil penalties, victim restitution and submit a physical specimen to the State for DNA profiling.
