A 29-year-old Lawrence man has been charged in Douglas County District Court on three felony sex charges involving a 6-year-old.
Prosecutors said the man engaged in sodomy with the child and lewd fondling or touching. The man is charged with two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of aggravated criminal sodomy for incidents that allegedly occurred between June 2007 and October 2007 in Douglas County. The child would have been 5 or 6 years old at the time.
The suspect's bond was set at $30,000 during his first appearance Wednesday afternoon. He was ordered to have no contact with the victim or any children under the age of 16, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Charles Branson said. The suspect's next court appearance was scheduled for Aug. 12.
The Journal-World generally does not name suspects in sex crimes unless they are convicted.
