A Douglas County jury began hearing evidence Monday in the case of a man accused of trying to lure a West Junior High School student into his car last December.
But the defense attorney for Stephen R. Stout, 47, said her client said or did nothing of a sexual nature to the girl. Attorney Sarah Swain said Stout only asked the girl for the time.
But prosecutor Kevin Graham, an assistant Kansas attorney general, contends that the 13-year-old girl on Dec. 20 saw the same car drive by her at least twice more.
"The guy spoke to her. He's trying to get her closer to the car, and he's driven by one, two, three times," Graham said.
Swain said the girl stopped and had a snowball fight with her friends before she called 911.
"She doesn't say anything to her friends about a man trying to lure her into the car," Swain said.
Stout faces one count of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child. He has already pleaded guilty to three counts of lewd and lascivious behavior for exposing himself to three other female students shortly after the first girl alleged he tried to lure her into his car.
Detectives later arrested Stout after a short pursuit through a neighborhood. Officers found underwear on the floor and a loaded handgun in the car.
The trial is scheduled to resume at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
