CANYON CITY – Judge William D. Cramer Jr. sentenced Bobby Wayne Lampton, 63, in the Grant County Circuit Court to 30 years in prison Wednesday, July 1, for sex crimes against a child.

On June 24 Lampton was found guilty on six counts, including two counts of sodomy in the first degree, one count of unlawful sexual penetration in the first degree and three counts of sexual abuse in the first degree.

Grant County District Attorney Jim Carpenter and Deputy District Attorney Matt Ipson prosecuted the case, and Renee Denison of Ontario represented Lampton.

Lampton was given credit for time served – approximately one year in the Grant County Jail.

Family members who took the stand to make statements said the sentencing is a victory not only for the victim, but for other victims as well.
