Douglas County prosecutors have filed seven charges against a rural Edgerton man, including two counts of child rape.
Prosecutors allege the 45-year-old man who lives in southeastern Douglas County committed the acts at his home against two 5-year-olds between June and November. Prosecutors allege he raped a 5-year-old child in two of the counts.
He’s also accused of fondling and exposing himself to the same child in two separate charges. In three other counts, prosecutors allege the suspect twice fondling another 5-year-old child and also exposed himself to that child.
The allegations were initially reported to Douglas County Sheriff’s investigators on Nov. 13, and after prosecutors reviewed information in the case a warrant was issued. The suspect was arrested at his home Saturday morning.
A judge Monday set his bond at $150,000 cash or surety, and the suspect has a hearing scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Feb. 22 in front of District Judge Peggy Kittel.
