Horton's Hoobler earns decades in prison

Shandon Hoobler/Atchison Co Jail

(KAIR)--A Horton man, already serving a prison sentence for child sex-related crimes, has received an additional sentence of more than 40-years, arising out of similar crimes committed in Atchison County.

35-year-old Shandon Hoobler learned his fate in Atchison County District Court Tuesday, when the judge sentenced him to prison for 41.7 years for the crimes of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated sexual battery.
Along with the prison sentence, Hoobler was ordered to a lifetime registration as a sexual offender.

He is not expected to be eligible for parole until he is 80-years-old.

According to a release from Atchison County Attorney Sherri Becker, the case, which led to Tuesday's sentence, was first reported to the Atchison County Sheriff's Office in 2021. The resulting investigation revealed that Hoobler was already serving a Brown County prison sentence for electronic solicitation and sexual exploitation of a child.
Hoobler was arrested on the new charges.

In December of last year, Hoobler, in Atchison County District Court, entered a guilty plea to the charges, leading to this week's sentence.
