Lawrence man gets jail time, probation for solicitation and burglary cases

October 18, 2011


A Douglas County judge has sentenced a 39-year-old Lawrence man to serve 30 days in jail and two years on probation for convictions in an attempted child solicitation case and a burglary case.

District Judge Kay Huff on Monday sentenced Alejandro Gutierrez Trevino to serve two years probation in the solicitation case and concurrently serve one year on probation in the burglary case, according to Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson’s office.

Trevino in June to avoid a trial entered a plea to one count of attempted aggravated indecent solicitation of a child after a family member in April accused him of soliciting a 12-year-old girl to commit a sex act in a home in east Lawrence. Less than one month later police arrested Trevino on burglary and theft charges accused of burglarizing a garage in the 1600 block of Rhode Island Street. He later pleaded no contest to one count of attempted burglary of a non-dwelling, according to court records.

Huff ordered Trevino to serve 30 days in jail in the burglary case. If he’s found to violate terms of his probation, Trevino faces a 12-month prison sentence in each case.

This sentence is exactly as prescribed by the sentencing guidelines. The attempted solicitation charge is a level 7 felony. With no prior criminal history, the sentence set by the legislature is probation with an underlying 12 month prison sentence.

The attempted burglary is a level 9. With the criminal history of having the indecent solicitation, again the guidelines call for probation with an underlying 12 month sentence. (without the solicitation conviction, the sentence for the burglary would have been half that prison term.)
