Douglas County prosecutors have filed four sex-crime charges against a 45-year-old Lawrence man whom police arrested Tuesday night.

According to court records, prosecutors filed three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of indecent liberties with a child. According to the charges, he’s accused of engaging in lewd fondling or touching of two children, now ages 12 and 14, during a period from May 2010 to Feb. 8 of this year.

Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said Wednesday morning the report in the case was not yet available.

A judge Wednesday set the man’s bond at $75,000 and ordered him to have no contact with the victims as a bond condition.

The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.
