LAWRENCE – Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez today announced that Timothy Glen Martins, 47, of Lawrence, was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility for parole for 25 years for a conviction of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Martins also was sentenced to 59 months for another count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, 41 months for another count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, and 32 months for indecent liberties with a child. The sentences will be served concurrently with the Kansas Department of Corrections.

Charges stemmed from incidents occurring 2012 through 2017, in which Martins engaged in sexual conduct with female children under his care and residing in his home.

“The defendant preyed upon his own children,” Valdez said. “I commend the survivors for exercising tremendous courage to bring this perpetrator to justice and making our community safer.”

The State was represented by Valdez and Deputy District Attorney Joshua D. Seiden. The case was investigated by the Carbondale Police Department, the Special Victims Unit of the Lawrence Police Department, and the Kansas Department for Children and Families.
