Kansas man sentenced to life for child abuse

TROY, Kan. (AP) — A northeast Kansas man faces more than 30 years in prison after being convicted of sex crimes against children.

The state attorney general’s office said in a release Wednesday that 42-year-old Heath Umphenour was found guilty in May in Doniphan County court of charges including aggravated indecent liberties with a child, aggravated criminal sodomy and sexual exploitation of a child.

The office says the crimes occurred between April 2011 and November 2012.

The attorney general’s office says Umphenour was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without a chance for parole for more than 30 years.
