Hebb sentenced to five years in jail

Forty-five days per count may not sound like much, but it adds up when you have pleaded no contest to nearly 40 charges against you. That was the case for Emporian Thomas Hebb on Thursday.

Hebb was sentenced to nearly five years in jail on 30 combined misdemeanor counts of obscenity and stalking after he allegedly mailed graphic letters to over 20 Emporia and Lyon County residents starting in late 2011.

Hebb, who was charged a year ago after a lengthy investigation, can have short releases every two weeks for mental health evaluations. He is eligible for a parole request in a year.
