Anthony man gets 21 1/2 years for rape, meth distribution

A 29-year-old Harper County man was sentenced Friday to 21.5 years in prison on rape and meth distribution convictions, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Reese Adam Young of Anthony was given the 258-month term by District Judge Larry T. Solomon. Schmidt said a jury in July found Young guilty of rape; he subsequently pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance in August.

Young committed the crimes in 2013, Schmidt said.
