SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Greene County prosecutors have charged a Springfield man who works at the Federal Center for Medical Prisoners with 19 counts of sodomy after what they say is a repeated pattern of sexual abuse against two boys.
Antonio D. Alburquerque, 56, is accused of repeated sexual contact with the two -- one from when he was six years old to the time he turned 15, and the other from when he was 10 until he turned 15 -- at a home in Springfield. The acts occurred in the time frame from the mid-1980s to mid-1990s.
Alburquerque has worked for the Federal Center for Medical Prisoners since 1992 as a physician's assistant, a spokesperson at the facility told KSPR News.
The charges against Alburquerque were filed June 15 in Greene County Circuit Court.
Prosecutors say Alburquerque also engaged in inappropriate behavior with a young female as well. He had also been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for child pornography.
