Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez today announced that Jason E. Dallinga, 42, of Lawrence, was sentenced to a total of 351 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections for aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated battery.

Judge Stacey Donovan also sentenced Dallinga, who pleaded guilty, to lifetime post-release supervision and lifetime registration as a sexual offender.

The charges stemmed from incidents that occurred in October 2022.

“The survivors in this case have exercised tremendous courage to hold Mr. Dallinga accountable for his heinous actions,” District Attorney Valdez said. “My office will continue to be here to support survivors and we will work to bring these predators to justice.”

Chief Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Tatum represented the State. The case was investigated by the Special Victims Unit of the Lawrence Police Department and the Kansas Department for Children and Families.
