Man, 60, accused of child sex crimes

May 25, 2012


Prosecutors have filed 11 sex-crime charges against a 60-year-old Leavenworth County man accused of soliciting and molesting children, according to Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson’s Office.

The man is charged with rape, two counts of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child, one count of indecent solicitation of a child, five counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, and two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior.

Prosecutors allege the crimes occurred over a three-year period beginning in 2009 and ending earlier this month. The charges list four victims. The oldest one was born in 1997 and the youngest in 2000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 12, Thompson said.

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