A Garden City man appeared in Douglas County District Court on Friday to face child sex crime charges alleged to have occurred in Lawrence from 2007 to 2009.
James George, Douglas County’s judge pro-tem, agreed to keep the 31-year-old man’s bond at $80,000 cash or surety after he was brought to Douglas County Jail on a warrant Thursday from Finney County.
The man faces two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child because he’s accused of molesting and soliciting a child who was between the ages of 9 and 11 at the time.
He faces a fourth count of attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child because he’s accused of attempting to molest another child that would have been 8 to 10 years old at the time.
Prosecutors allege the incidents occurred in Lawrence but did not provide further details. The man has a hearing scheduled for Wednesday in front of District Judge Michael Malone.
The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they have been convicted.
