News release issued by Kansas Attorney General's Office:

PARSONS - (October 23, 2012) - A Parsons man will spend life in prison after being convicted of a child sex crime in April, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Nicholas Coree Joplin, 24, was sentenced to life in the Kansas Department of Corrections today by Labette County District Judge Robert J. Fleming. The case was prosecuted under Jessica's Law, meaning Joplin will not be eligible for parole for at least 25 years. A jury convicted Joplin in April on a single count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. The crime occurred in 2010.

The charge stemmed from an investigation by the Parsons Police Department. Assistant Attorneys General Kevin O'Connor and Amanda Voth of Schmidt's office prosecuted the case, assisted by Labette County Attorney Hillary McKinney.
