LYONS – A Lyons man was sentenced Wednesday to 17½ years in prison after pleading no contest to charges of rape and aggravated indecent liberties, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Jeffrey S. Redding, 34, was sentenced to a total of 210 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by Chief Judge Mike Keeley in Rice County District Court. Keeley also ordered Redding to lifetime registration as a sex offender, lifetime post-release supervision and lifetime electronic monitoring. Redding pleaded no contest to the charges in February.
The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Lyons Police Department. Assistant Attorney General Steve Karrer of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
