Foster father sentenced for child sex crimes
04/19/2019

(KNZA)--A Leavenworth man, and former foster parent, is going to prison, sentenced Tuesday on child sex-related charges.

According to a release from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, 38-year-old Floyd Hardin Jr. will spend 4-years in prison.

Hardin previously entered a guilty plea to aggravated indecent liberties with a child between the ages of 14 and 16.

The charges stem from crimes committed against a child in Hardin’s care when he served as a foster father.

Based on his lack of criminal history, the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines recommended a sentence of 5-years.

According to Thompson, the Leavenworth County District Court “found substantial and compelling reasons to depart” from the sentencing guidelines, and ordered the sentence of 4-years.

Hardin’s attorney had requested either probation or a reduced prison sentence.
