Resident charged with indecent liberties

March 11, 2009


Douglas County prosecutors filed two charges of aggravated indecent liberties with a child against a 41-year-old Lawrence man on Tuesday.

Lawrence police said the man was arrested after two incidents on Saturday involving a 7-year-old girl.

Police spokeswoman Kim Murphree said the girl’s mother reported her daughter was inappropriately touched twice by the suspect, who is known to them.

The crimes allegedly occurred at a home in Eudora and a home in southwest Lawrence, Murphree said.

A $150,000 bond was set for the suspect during a first appearance Tuesday. The suspect is scheduled to return to court at 2 p.m. Thursday.

It is Journal-World policy not to name suspects in sex crimes, unless there is a conviction.
