Lyons man sentenced in child molestation case

Jeffrey Redding

LYONS, Kansas (AP) — A central Kansas man has been sentenced to more than 17 years in prison for the sexual abuse of a child.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Wednesday that 34-four-year-old Jeffrey S. Redding of Lyons was sentenced to 210 months in prison for rape and aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

He pleaded no contest to the charges in February.

Redding also will have to register as a sex offender for life, and have lifetime post-release supervision and electronic monitoring.

Rice County District Court records indicate the crimes occurred in May 2010. Other charges were dismissed as part of Redding’s plea agreement.

The age and gender of Redding’s victim were not released. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
