SALINA, Kansas (AP) – A former worker at a private social services facility in Salina has been sentenced to three years in prison for having sex with a 16-year-old client.
The Salina Journal reports that 34-year-old Michael S. Pfeifer, a former worker at Saint Francis Community Services in, was sentenced Monday to three years in prison for unlawful sexual relations. He’ll also be subject to two years of supervision after he’s released.
Jeremy Koop, who represented Pfeifer, argued for probation, saying appropriate treatment was available that would more likely help Pfeifer change his behavior.
Prosecutor Christina Trocheck said when Pfeifer was employed by Saint Francis, in 2012, he signed a contract agreeing he would not engage in personal contact with the youths and children served by the nonprofit, faith-based organization.
