Vernie Burns – Repeat Sex Offender – Gets Life for being a Repeat Sex Offender

A 42-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man has been sentenced to three consecutive life terms for molesting children.

Vernie Burns will have no chance of parole for 40 years, Wyandotte County Judge J. Dexter Burdette ordered Friday.

Burns was accused of molesting three victims in their home in Kansas City, Kan., a press release from the Wyandotte County district attorney’s office said. In November, a jury convicted Burns of two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Burns had been convicted previously in Missouri for molesting an 8-year-old child. Because he is a repeat offender, the judge was able to sentence Burns to the mandatory 40 years.
