Release Date: Sep 22, 2016

LYONS – (September 22, 2016) – A Hutchinson man was sentenced yesterday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 25 years for sex crimes against children, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Jeffrey Dean Crenshaw, 43, was found guilty in July by a Rice County jury of five counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, one count of attempted aggravated criminal sodomy and one count of criminal sodomy of a person under 14 years of age. The charges fall under Jessica’s Law because the victim was under 14 years of age. Judge Steven Johnson sentenced Crenshaw to life in prison to be served in the Kansas Department of Corrections.

The crimes were committed between February 2010 and February 2012. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Lyons Police Department. Assistant Attorney General Adam Zentner of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
