MINNEAPOLIS – (November 12, 2013) – A Minneapolis man was sentenced today to nearly 13 years in prison after being convicted of sex crimes earlier this year, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Bernard Wallin, 79, was sentenced to 155 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by Chief Judge Jerome P. Hellmer in Ottawa County District Court. An Ottawa County jury found Wallin guilty in August of one count of rape, three counts of aggravated criminal sodomy and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.

The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Minneapolis Police Department and Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Assistant Attorney General Steve Karrer of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.
