A Lyons man was sentenced Wednesday to 17½ years in prison after pleading no contest to charges of rape and aggravated indecent liberties, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Jeffrey S. Redding, 34, was sentenced to a total of 210 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by Chief Judge Mike Keeley in Rice County District Court. Keeley also ordered Redding to lifetime registration as a sex offender, lifetime post-release supervision and lifetime electronic monitoring.

Redding pleaded no contest to the charges in February.
