ALTON, IL (KMOX) - An Alton man who told police he sexually assaulted two very young family members is scheduled to be sentenced today.

Prosecutors are seeking to put 30 year old Michael Burgund behind bars for the rest of his life.

Police say Burgund walked into the Alton Police Department on April 5th, 2011 and confessed to assaulting two and three-year-old girls beginning in June of 2008.

Burgund recanted the confession during his trial but was still convicted on five counts of predatory criminal sexual assault.
