A Christian County man is off to prison for more than a decade after being sentenced for sexual exploitation of a minor. After a plea earlier this year - James Owens of Owaneco, a former Taylorville Schools’ bus driver was sent to prison for 12 years for enticing under aged individuals to engage in sexual activity for which a person could be charged with a criminal offense. The offenses were committed from August 2012 to May 2013 and from December 2012 to February 2013. Owens has remained in custody since he was arrested in 2013 – after his release he will remain on supervised release for 20 years.
