Ellis Prairie man receives 12-year prison term

An Ellis Prairie man was sentenced last week to a 12-year term on child sexual abuses.

Kenny Wheeler, 68, received the sentence from Associate Circuit Judge John Clayton. Texas County Prosecutor Mike Anderson had sought 15 years. Wheeler, who earlier entered a guilty plea, apologized to his family and victims during the court appearance.

Wheeler was later transferred to the Missouri Department of Corrections.
