A 19-year-old eastern Kansas man has been sentenced to more than six years in prison for using text messages to solicit a 12-year-old girl for sex.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Coffey County District Court Judge Philip Fromme sentenced Dylan T. Redding, of Gridley, to six years and five months last week after he was convicted in June of using text messages to solicit sex from a minor, which is a felony.

Coffey County Attorney Doug Witteman says the investigation began in March after the 12-year-old victim's parents called authorities to report inappropriate text messages.

Redding will also be required to register as a sex offender for 25 years after he's released.
