A 19-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Friday afternoon on two counts of having sex with a minor and one count of contributing to the misconduct of a child.

According to the Douglas County Jail booking log, the sex crimes involve voluntary sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old.

The charges are a level-8 felonies, and a conviction could result in probation or up to 23 months in prison.

The man was released on a $2,000 bond and is scheduled to appear back in court April 19.
