HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A former Kansas bail bondsman convicted of forcing women to have sex has been sentenced to 21 years in state prison.
KWBW-AM reports (http://bit.ly/1vZZ13m ) that 66-year-old Dwight Jurgens told the judge at his sentencing Friday that the women who testified against him had lied.
A Reno County jury convicted Jurgens last month of rape, aggravated human trafficking and attempted human trafficking.
Prosecutors said Jurgens told four women he would revoke their bonds if they didn’t have sex with him. The crimes occurred while Jurgens was a bonding agent for TNT Bonding.
In at least one case, a woman was given drugs by Jurgens and passed out, only to discover him on top of her.
