Two Alliance men have been sent to prison on child-sex convictions.
Forty-year-old Steven Thompson was given three consecutive one-year prison terms for three counts of misdemeanor attempted sexual assault of a minor. He pleaded guilty after a deal with the prosecutor to drop the charges to misdemeanors instead of felonies.
Kyle Stairs was given two years in prison for misdemeanor enticement by electronic device and misdemeanor child abuse. Authorities say that in February 2009, Stairs tried to entice an 11-year-old girl by sending her lewd messages on her cell phone.
The 28-year-old Stairs also pleaded guilty after the charges were reduced to misdemeanors.
