ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) A northeast Kansas teenager will spend more than five years in an adult prison for a pair of sex offenses.

KAIR Radio reports that 16-year-old Zaheer Cluke, of Atchison, will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life after finishing the prison term ordered by a judge this week.

Cluke was 15 when he was arrested last August for attacking a 13-year-old girl in an Atchison park. He was certified to stand trial as an adult and pleaded guilty in December to aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

The sentence also includes six months for lewd and lascivious conduct. That charge stemmed from a December incident in which Cluke exposed himself to a female jail employee.
