Kansas massage therapist gets 25 years to life for sex crimes

Crime

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a massage therapist to three prison terms of 25 years to life for several sex crimes against five people.

They include a child and three female soccer players at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.

Douglas County Judge Sally Pokorny sentenced 50-year-old Shawn P. O’Brien on Friday after jurors in August found him guilty on eight counts.

Three of the charges accused O’Brien of indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14 for fondling a girl who was either 9 or 10 on three occasions between 2013 and 2015.

The sentences will be served concurrently. O’Brien will have to serve at least 25 years before being eligible for parole.
