Iola man sentenced for sexual battery


February 15, 2014 - 12:00 AM

Thomas Yohon, Iola, was sentenced to 36 months of probation for aggravated sexual battery Monday in Allen County District Court.
Prosecutor Christopher Phelan said the probation came from suspension of a 30-month prison sentence, a stipulation in the plea agreement from the prosecuting parties. While Judge Daniel Creitz is not bound by any agreement, Phelan said he opted to decide with the agreement.
Yohon, who is relocating to Texas and will be under supervision by the state of Texas, is in Allen County Jail and has been in custody since he was arrested in October 2013.
Phelan said Yohon had had the lowest level of criminal history, however, coupled with a level-5 felony, the conviction warranted a decision of either prison time or probation. Under Kansas law, Yohon must register as a sex offender for the next 25 years. Phelan said he must follow any regulations under Texas law as well.
