29-year-old Lawrence man arrested on suspicion of four sex crimes against children

A 29-year-old Lawrence man was booked into the Douglas County Jail early Wednesday on suspicion of four sex crimes, according to the jail’s booking log.

The man was taken into custody around 4:20 a.m. on suspicion of indecent liberties with a child, rape, aggravated indecent liberties with a child and sexual exploitation of a child.

Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley said Wednesday that the man is accused of having “unlawful sexual relations with two juvenile victims who are known to the suspect.”

The crimes, alleged to have occurred at a southeast Lawrence residence, were reported to police just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Lawrence Police Department’s call log.

Cheryl Wright Kunard, assistant to the Douglas County district attorney, said Wednesday that if the district attorney’s office decides to file charges, the man will make his first court appearance Thursday.

The man remains in the Douglas County Jail without bond pending his first appearance.
