A Chanute woman was sentenced Thursday under Jessica’s Law to life in prison for rape and sexual exploitation of a child, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Amanda L. Grotton, 28, was sentenced to two concurrent sentences of life in the Kansas Department of Corrections without eligibility for parole for 25 years by Judge Darryl D. Ahlquist in Neosho County District Court. In addition, Grotton was sentenced to 6 months in prison for obstructing official duty. She pleaded guilty to the charges last year. The sex crimes were alleged to have occurred in November 2008 against victims under the age of 14.

The case was investigated by the Chanute Police Department, the Iola Police Department, the Sedgwick County Exploited and Missing Child Unit and the Heart of America Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory. Assistant Attorney General Christine Ladner of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case. Schmidt commended the law enforcement officials involved on their handling of the case.
