Man charged with soliciting 12-year-old girl

April 9, 2011


Douglas County prosecutors Friday charged a 38-year-old Lawrence man with soliciting a 12-year-old girl to commit an unlawful sex act.

A judge set bond for Alejandro Trevino Jr. at $15,000 cash or surety and ordered him to have no contact with the alleged victim or witnesses in the case.

Lawrence police said they were called to a residence Wednesday night in the 1300 block of Prospect Avenue in east Lawrence where Trevino was accused of making an indecent solicitation to a family member one night earlier. He was arrested Wednesday night, but prosecutors filed formal charges Friday.

Trevino is next due in court at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
