A former Boonville radio host was sentenced to 5 years of supervised probation after he pleaded guilty to a felony count of child molestation Wednesday.

Bob Bosma changed his plea after initially pleading not guilty in October 2019.

Online court records say Bosma pleaded down to a lesser charge, he was originally charged with first-degree child molestation less than 14 years old.

The same documents say Bosma could spend up to 15 years in prison if he violates the conditions of his probation.

Bosma is ordered to have no contact with the victim and must register as a sex offender, court records said.

He was formerly an employee at KWRT in Boonville but hadn't worked at the station since he was charged, station owners Billings Broadcasting said. The company had no comment after Bosma's sentencing.
