NEWTON, Kan. -

A Wichita man was sentenced yesterday to more than 10 years in prison for aggravated sexual battery, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

James Robert Tolliver, 64, was sentenced to 130 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by Judge Joe Dickenson. Tolliver was found guilty of the crime by a Harvey County jury in December 2013. The crime occurred in March 2012 in a Sedgwick long-term care facility where Tolliver was employed as a certified nurse assistant.

The Sedgwick Police Department and Kansas Attorney General's Office Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Division investigated the case. The case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General John Bryant of Schmidt's office.
