Lawrence police arrested a 35-year-old man on a charge of aggravated incest Wednesday, according to Douglas County Jail records.
Prosecutors accuse the suspect of engaging in sex or sodomy with his 16-year-old child between Sept. 1, 2008, and Oct. 16, 2008, according to district court documents.
“The allegation is that the crime occurred over a period of time in more than one location,” said Kim Murphree, police spokeswoman.
The suspect, who pleaded not guilty to the charge during his first court appearance Thursday afternoon, will be in court again next Thursday.
The Journal-World generally does not name suspects of sex crimes unless there is a conviction.
