Linwood — A Linwood man has been sentenced to life in prison for sexually molesting a young relative.
Thirty-four-year-old Chris King was sentenced Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court on two counts of rape and other charges. He will be eligible for parole in 25 years.
King was convicted in October of sexually abusing his 8-year-old relative between August 2007 and January 2008.
Defense attorney Scott Toth told The Leavenworth Times that he will file an appeal.
Before he was sentenced, King told the court that he had not assaulted anyone, suggesting the girl was only seeking attention.
