TOPEKA -- A Kansas Court of Appeals panel has affirmed an Osage County ruling to revoke probation in a child sex case.


Shayne Lang had entered a plea of no contest to an amended count of sexual exploitation in 2013. He was granted a 36-month probation term with the stipulation that he could receive 20 months in prison for violations. Lang received two sanctions for violations, a three-day jail sanction in January 2016 and a six-month sanction in September 2016, before his probation was revoked in August 2017 for failing to report to his probation officer.

Lang appealed, saying the district court abused its discretion in the case. However, the Court of Appeals denied that appeal. It says the district court has to impose a shorter jail sanction before revoking probation, which it did twice in Lang's case.
