LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) -- A Douglas County judge has sentenced a 39-year-old Lawrence man to two life sentences for sex crimes with a six-year-old girl.

Dean Oliver Tapedo was convicted in August of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated criminal sodomy.

Each charge carries a sentence of 25 years to life under Jessica's Law.
