South-central Kansas man sentenced to life for child sex crime
EDICINE LODGE, Kan. – Robert Pruitt, 22, a south-central Kansas man, was sentenced to life in jail without the possibility of parole for a minimum of twenty five years for sex crimes involving a child.
On Wednesday, a Barber County judge sentenced Pruitt under the state’s Jessica Law, under which longer sentences for sex crimes involving children are given. Other than that he was ordered to wear electronic monitoring for life and lifetime registration as a sex offender.
In October 2013, he pleaded guilty to one count of rape of a child below the age of 14, according to the Hutchinson News reports.
