A Topeka man convicted of internet sex crimes will spend nearly 13 years behind bars.
Judge Richard Anderson sentenced 51-year old Sherfy Kemper Friday to 155-months on each of two counts but those terms will run at the same time.
Kemper was convicted of electronic solicitation of a child under 14 and attempted rape of a child under 14. He was arrested following a sting where a woman posed as a 13-year old girl online.
District Attorney Robert Hecht argued Kemper's sentence should fall under the mandatory 25-years of Jessica's Law, but Judge Anderson ruled circumstances merited a shorter term.
