A 67-year-old Basehor man entered pleas Thursday in Leavenworth County District Court to soliciting and illegally touching children, Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said.
Dorsey H. Aldridge Jr. entered guilty pleas to two counts of aggravated solicitation of a child and a no-contest plea to one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.
Basehor police originated the investigation in late May.
Prosecutors accused Aldridge of trying to touch children as he permitted them to play in his yard or his residence and lured them there with treats. A 6-year-old girl reported to relatives that Aldridge touched her underneath her underwear when she was at his residence in Basehor, Thompson said.
A 10-year-old girl also said she saw Aldridge touch her friend and that he asked her to prove she was a girl by pulling down her pants. She refused.
A 7-year-old girl also reported to police that Aldridge asked her to pull down her pants, but she refused.
Aldridge is scheduled to return to court Oct. 15 for sentencing.
