Crawford County Attorney Michael Gayoso has been busy this week.
On Monday, his office handled two cases in different stages of legal proceedings.
The first case involved a plea deal with Pittsburg resident Allon Dale Anderson, 37. Anderson was originally charged with two counts of aggravated indecent liberties and two counts of attempted criminal sodomy. Anderson was found guilty of one count of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child under 14, a person felony, as part of a plea deal approved by the victims’ families.
Anderson had been accused of the crimes for involvement with two children, 9 and 10 years old, from June to July 2008.
The court ordered a sex offender assessment and Anderson is required to register as a sex offender under Kansas law. The crime is a presumptive prison sentence, between 31 and 136 months in jail depending on Anderson’s criminal history. Sentencing is set for Aug. 10.
The other case was the sentencing of Michael Marrone, 28, Frontenac. Marrone had pleaded to aggravated battery, a person felony involving a 5-year-old child, on May 14.
Marrone had pled guilty to aggravated battery after being charged with child abuse. Because of Marrone’s criminal history and the level of the crime, Marrone was sentenced to a year in jail, but that sentence was suspended and he was placed on probation for two years. As a requirement of his probation, Marrone was ordered to serve 30 days in the county jail, as well as perform 50 hours of community service, pay court costs, and repay the costs of his court-appointed attorney.
