JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas man who repeatedly exposed himself over the Internet to a Missouri deputy sheriff posing as a 13-year-old girl has been sentenced to five years of probation.

The Joplin Globe reports 47-year-old Olathe, Kansas, resident Richard Calohan was sentenced Monday in Jasper County, Missouri, for sexual misconduct with a child on the Internet.

Investigators say Calohan had repeated contact with Jasper County Sheriff's Detective Ed Bailey online between July 25, 2011, and March 20, 2013, while the detective posed as a teenage girl.

Bailey says Calohan exposed himself frequently on a webcam, sent nude photos of his wife and kept requesting photos of the girl.

Calohan must register as a sex offender and undergo a psychosexual evaluation, along with several other stipulations as part of his probation.
