DALLAS -- An Independence man accused of public indecency and attempted kidnap of a child in two separate cases has pleaded guilty to one count of public indecency and will serve more than six years for the crime.
Tommy J. Vollendroff was sentenced in Polk County Circuit Court Aug. 20 to 75 months incarceration after reaching an agreement with the Polk County District Attorney's Office. The agreement dismissed the remaining charges against him: a second count of public indecency, two counts of unlawful contact with a child and attempted first-degree kidnapping.
The maximum sentence for the charge Vollendroff pleaded guilty to is five years in prison, according to court records. However the longer sentence took into account Vollendroff's "persistent criminal activity," as well as the plea agreement's stipulation for a longer sentence, according to court documents.
Vollendroff was arrested in April 2012 on the public indecency charges and later was accused of attempted kidnapping in a separate case, which was dismissed in July.
