A 24-year-old woman pleaded guilty Monday to two felony charges for forcing an 11-year-old Haysville girl into a gas station bathroom and ordering her to urinate into a cup so the woman could use the urine to pass a court-ordered drug test.
Crystal Hopper, who listed a Wellington address after her arrest, pleaded guilty to interference with parental custody and aggravated endangering a child. She had been scheduled to stand trail this week in Sedgwick County District Court on kidnapping and robbery charges.
Prosecutors said the crimes arose from a Haysville Municipal Court case. In court papers, prosecutors said that:
A Wichita man was convicted Monday of second-degree murder in a case where some of the prosecution’s strongest testimony came from a man who committed suicide less than six weeks before the trial began.
Travis Knighten, 20, was convicted in the shooting death of Mario Brown, 22, at an after-hours party in a parking lot at the southwest corner of 13th and Hillside on May 7, 2011. He also was convicted of aggravated battery for shooting and wounding a second man.
The jury began its deliberations late Friday afternoon and delivered its verdict shortly before noon Monday.
A McPherson County man was sentenced Monday to 260 years in federal prison for using a 9-year-old child to produce child pornography.
Philip Andra Grigsby, 50, of Marquette pleaded guilty to eight counts of sexual exploitation of a child, one count of possession of child pornography and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.
Grigsby initially was charged in a criminal complaint filed in July in U.S. District Court in Wichita. The complaint stated the investigation began in Australia earlier in 2012 when an Australian man was arrested by police in that country. Evidence in that case showed the man had received child pornography over the Internet from other men, including Grigsby in Kansas.
