Holton man Jacob Ewing accepts plea agreement in sex crimes that will bring him 10 years in prison



TOPEKA, Kan. –  Jackson County sex crimes defendant Jacob C. Ewing has accepted a plea agreement expected to bring him 10 years in prison for two sexual assaults, for which he was previously convicted but saw his convictions overturned upon appeal.

Ewing, 26, of Holton, pleaded guilty Friday in Jackson County District Court to two counts of aggravated sexual battery, said Jackson County Attorney Shawna Miller.

As part of the arrangement, both sides agreed to accept a sentence of 10 years incarceration in one case and two years, eight months, in the other, with both sentences running at the same time, Miller said in a news release.

Ewing is to begin serving the requested 10-year sentence on the day that sentence is imposed, which is scheduled to be June 18, Miller said.
