Leavenworth County prosecutors have filed eight charges against a 64-year-old Tonganoxie man who is accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl over a two-year period ending earlier in February.

Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said the defendant appeared in court Friday.

Prosecutors have filed two counts of child rape, one from February of this year and another from February of 2009. The man also faces two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and four counts of aggravated criminal sodomy with a child younger than 14.

The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted. Thompson said the defendant is next due in Leavenworth County District Court on March 18.

People like to whine about society today, but at least now, sex is not such a taboo subject. Kids are a lot more savvy about stuff like that, then when i was a kid. They are much more likely to say something. This is not a bad thing. Probably explains why a lot more things like this are reported these days. It doesn't mean we are going to hell in a hand basket.

Sad. Parents, talk to your children about this sort of thing. Teach them to "Say No, Go, and Tell" --- say "no" to the abuser, "go" from the place where the abuse is happening, and "tell" any adult ... a teacher, police officer, nurse, neighbor, just about anybody you think you can trust. Teach them to do this even if they are embarrassed or if the abuser has threatened them or their family. Teach them that abuse is wrong and that if it happens they have to make it stop, and that people will help them, but they can only help them if they know.
