Excelsior Springs man accused of having sex within view of a 15-year-old

An Excelsior Springs, Mo., man is accused of having sex within view of a minor.

Evan Wesley Kilgore, 25, surrendered himself to the Douglas County Jail on Thursday. He faces a single felony charge of lewd and lascivious behavior.

In May 2015 Kilgore had sex “with knowledge or reasonable anticipation” that the activity was within view of a 15-year-old person, according to a criminal complaint filed in Douglas County District Court.

Apart from the minor who reportedly witnessed the sex, the act was legal, the complaint says.

The criminal complaint was filed against Kilgore in July, and in August he was served with a summons, according to Douglas County District Court records.

Kilgore turned himself in to the jail and was released later Thursday on a $2,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon, when a date will be set for his preliminary hearing.

Depending on his criminal history, Kilgore could face more than a year in prison if he is convicted of the felony charge. He has no criminal history in Douglas County.
