Man gets 265 years for molesting, photographing 1-year-old

LIBERTY, Mo. (AP) _ A Missouri man has been sentenced to about 265 years in prison after the parents of a 1-year-old came home to find the man photographing and molesting their daughter.

The Kansas City Star reports that 28-year-old Jayson Newlun was sentenced Thursday in Clay County for three counts of statutory sodomy and seven counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Court records say Newlun was visiting a couple who left him with their sleeping daughter in June 2017 while they went to the store. Upon returning, they found Newlun abusing the baby. Court records say the girl’s father tackled Newlun and held him until police arrived.

Prosecutor Daniel White said in a statement that the mother screamed “I hope you go down for this,” and Newlun responded, “I do, too.”
