Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez today announced that Jason E. Dallinga, 42, of Lawrence, was sentenced to a total of 351 months in prison for aggravated indecent liberties with a child, aggravated battery and indecent liberties with a child.
Judge Stacey Donovan sentenced Dallinga to 61 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC) for aggravated indecent liberties with a child and 34 months in the KDOC for aggravated battery. Dallinga had pleaded guilty to both counts in October. As part of a plea agreement, Dallinga also agreed to serve 256 months in the KDOC after pleading guilty to indecent liberties with a child. All sentences are to be served consecutively. Dallinga must serve lifetime post-release supervision and lifetime registration as a sexual offender.
The charges stemmed from incidents that occurred in October 2022 when Dallinga engaged in lewd fondling or touching of a child less than 14 years old and a child between 14 and 16 years of age.
“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.
