SALINA, Kansas (AP) – A former Salina man will serve decades in prison after being sentenced for his second conviction of sexually abusing a young girl.

Forty-year-old Shawn T. Vogan was sentenced Thursday to life in prison with a minimum of 40 years. He pleaded guilty in July to aggravated indecent liberties with a child after admitting he abused a girl who was 8 years old when the abuse began.

The sentence would be served after Vogan completes a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years he is currently serving for a 2009 Sedgwick County rape of a girl younger than 14.

Prosecutor Christina Trocheck said the Saline County girl was sexually abused by Vogan before his Sedgwick County conviction, but didn’t tell anyone until last year.
