Lawrence man charged in alleged rape

October 20, 2005


A 63-year-old Lawrence man has been charged with raping a 39-year-old woman early Tuesday in northeast Lawrence.

The alleged rape happened between 2:40 a.m. and 4:49 a.m. Tuesday, police said. The victim and suspect reportedly know each other.

The man was booked into jail Tuesday afternoon and charged Wednesday with rape and aggravated battery. District Court Judge Pro Tem Peggy Kittel set his bond at $30,000, based in part on his lack of criminal history. She set his next court date for Tuesday.

The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects in sex crimes unless they've been convicted.
