(KAIR)--An Atchison man has been sentenced to 9 1/2 years in prison for the aggravated sexual battery of a Lawrence woman he met on a dating app.

According to a release from the Douglas County District Attorney's Office, 21-year-old Alex Skidmore was handed the sentence Friday in Douglas County District Court.

The release said Skidmore was also sentenced to lifetime post-release supervision and is required to register as a sex offender for 25 years.

He pleaded no contest to the charge in November.

The charge stems from an incident that occurred on June 16, 2022 when a 21-year-old woman reported to Lawrence police that Skidmore sexually assaulted her in her bedroom.

The case was investigated by Lawrence Police Department and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
