LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) _ A Leavenworth man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for beating his aunt and her friend with a golf
club.

Thirty-eight-year-old Wayne Sidney Jr. was sentenced Wednesday
for the June 11 attack. He was also sentenced to 16 months for
fleeing police, driving while suspended and other traffic
violations.

The Leavenworth County prosecutor says Sidney beat the victims
while he was awaiting sentence for the traffic violations, which
occurred in March while Sidney was driving a stolen car.

During his sentencing Sidney said he was under the influence of
drugs and alcohol and had been awake for 10 days when the beatings
occurred.
