Lakin A former Kearny County Sheriff's deputy will stand trial on 13 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.
Forty-six-year-old Timothy Rains of Lakin was bound over for trial after a hearing Tuesday in Kearny County District Court.
Rains is charged with 13 counts of sexual exploitation of a child. Prosecutors allege he took explicit photographs of a girl younger than 18 with whom he had a relationship.
Prosecutors say the victim, a now-18-year-old Lakin woman, was a minor when Rains took the pictures.
The Garden City Telegram reports that during Tuesday's bond hearing, a tearful Rains asked the judge to keep him out of jail. His bond was set at $85,000.
Rains worked in law enforcement in Kearny County for 19 years before resigning in March.
Arraignment was set of Nov. 12.
