Lyons Man Sentenced In Sex Crimes Case

A Lyons man gets a nearly 20 year prison term in a sex crimes case.

According to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office, 34-year-old Jeffrey S. Redding was sentenced Wednesday to 17½ years in prison after pleading no contest to charges of rape and aggravated indecent liberties.

Chief Judge Mike Keeley sentenced Redding in Rice County District Court to a total of 210 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. 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.
