Man with 'diaper fetish' sentenced for child sex abuse


EFFINGHAM, Ill. (WAND)- The man accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old by touching her and making her take off her clothes and wear a diaper has been sentenced to twelve years in prison.

Police arrested Darien McKinney, 30, in May.

Investigators said the abuse happened from May to August 2015 in Effingham. They said they began investigating after the victim posted about the abuse on social media. Officials said McKinney admitted to having a “diaper fetish” and wearing diapers to calm himself.

In October, a jury found McKinney guilty of criminal sexual assault.

On Tuesday, a judge sentenced McKinney to twelve years in prison followed by three years of supervised release. McKinney will receive credit for 184 days already served in jail, according to online court records.
