A Parsons man was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday after being convicted of a child sex crime.
Nicholas Coree Joplin, 24, was sentenced by Labette County District Judge Robert J. Fleming. The case was prosecuted by the Kansas Attorney General’s office under Jessica’s Law, meaning Joplin will not be eligible for parole for at least 25 years.
A jury convicted Joplin in April on a single count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. The crime occurred in 2010.
