A former Chapman basketball coach has been sentenced to more than five years with the Kansas Department of Corrections and lifetime post release supervision for two counts of sexual exploitation of a child.
Mark Snider of Abilene, who had been the basketball and track coach for the USD 473 Chapman School District, was arrested last year on five counts of electronic solicitation and five counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child under 16.
Snider was sentenced late Friday in Geary County District Court to 68 months on the two sexual exploitation of a child counts. Two female victims were involved.
As KMAN reported in May of last year, Snider’s arrest came after a three week long investigation. He resigned at a Chapman school board meeting in April of 2016. Snider was originally arrested by Dickinson County authorities and transported to the Geary County Detention Center.
