Sex offender gets three years in prison

Chris Gladney was sentenced to three years in prison during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court last week after admitting he violated requirements imposed on him as a registered sex offender.

The 57-year-old Gladney was initially required to register after being convicted of two counts of sexual indecency with a child in late June 2010 and was sentenced to six years in prison.

Gladney has been charged several times with various failures to meet the requirements imposed on him, such as keeping law enforcement advised of his current address. Gladney told the court at times he had been homeless and not sure how to meet the requirements.

Gladney has been assessed as a level three sex offender at a high risk to reoffend.
