[ARCHIVED] Independence man sentenced 175 years for multiple child sex crimes

A Jackson County Judge sentenced Glenn McGinnis to a total of 175 years in prison for multiple child sex charges, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.  

The Judge sentenced McGinnis, DOB:10/8/85, to 25 years on each count 1-7 to run consecutively and 7 years each on counts 8 and 9 to run concurrently for a total of 175 years. 

A Jackson County jury found McGinnis guilty in May 2022 of five counts of Statutory Sodomy 1st degree, Attempted Statutory Rape 1st degree, Attempted Statutory Rape 1st degree, and two counts of Statutory Rape 2nd degree.
