A Lawrence man was released from jail Thursday afternoon after his appearance in Douglas County District Court on a charge of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child.
The 38-year-old man was released on a $5,000 own-recognizance bond after his first appearance on the charge, which was filed Wednesday. He was arrested Wednesday evening and booked into the Douglas County Jail.
The alleged incidents occurred during the late spring and early summer of last year, Dist. Atty. Christine Tonkovich said. The alleged victim is a 9-year-old boy, she said.
Reports were forwarded to the district attorney's office in mid-March, Tonkovich said.
The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects in sex crimes unless they have been convicted.
