Kansas man guilty of mistreatment, sex crime involving dependent adults

Posted: Updated:

A 25-year-old Kansas man has been found guilty of mistreating four elderly, dependent adults and a sex crime involving a fifth. 

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release that Thomas Tholstrup, of Delphos, pleaded guilty in Cloud County District Court to one count of attempted aggravated criminal sodomy and four counts of mistreatment of a dependent adult.

The crimes were committed in Cloud County between February 2016 and July 2017, but the release did not say where the incidents occurred.

The case stemmed from an investigation by the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division and the Cloud County Sheriff’s Department. 

Sentencing was set for April 11.
