OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -

A former employee of a suburban Kansas City youth mental health facility has been placed on probation for sex charges.

The Kansas City Star reports that 27-year-old Dijon Willis will have to serve 30 days in jail as a condition of probation. He also was ordered Monday to undergo sex offender treatment and be placed on the state's sex offender registry for 25 years.

Willis pleaded no contest in August and was found guilty of indecent liberties with a child and attempted sexual exploitation of a child. The charges stemmed from incidents in 2013 and 2014, when Willis worked at KidsTLC in Olathe.
