HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A Hutchinson man is on trial this week on charges he put his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son in a hot clothes dryer.
In a videotaped interview with detectives shown in court Wednesday, Aron Pritchard said he put the children in the dryer to show them they could have a good time without much money. An hour later, the dryer had become hot and the boy had second-degree burns.

Silly me, I've been doing it wrong all this time. I thought you were supposed to take the clothes OFF the kids before washing and drying them! I guess if you leave them ON you can wash and dry the kid at the same time?

Man Convicted In Clothes Dryer Case Sentenced A Third Time
While the state and the defense Friday morning argued over how much time a 33-year-old Hutchinson man should get in a child abuse case from 2007, District Judge Trish Rose sentenced Aron Pritchard to 110-months, down from the 124-months he was originally sentenced to by now Retired Judge Richard Rome, and a sentence Judge Rose had upheld previously.
Twice now the Court of Appeals remanded the case for re-sentencing based on the double rule in criminal cases.
The last time the case was before the court, Judge Rose ruled there was substantial evidence to grant the states motion a second time in sentencing Pritchard to an aggravated sentence in a child abuse case and then doubling the sentence, just as Judge Rome had done with the original sentence.
Pritchard’s Defense Attorney Lee Timan argued that he should only be given 62-months, 55-months for the abuse of a child count, and 7-months for the charge of endangering a child.
District Attorney Keith Schroeder argued that it should be 55-months on count 1 doubled, then 7-months on top of that for a total of 117-months. Judge Rose basically agreed with the state, but then ruled she could only sentence him up to 110-months.
Timan told the judge that they would file another appeal, so its conceivable that this case could come back again.
