PITTSBURG — A Pittsburg man is in the Crawford County Jail today, after being arrested on multiple sex charges.

According to a release from the Pittsburg Police Department, Larry Dean Strong, 41, of Pittsburg was arrested July 7, on five counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14.

According to the release the charges stem from four separate investigations involving five alleged victims.

Aggravated indecent liberties with a child is also defined as any lewd fondling or touching of a child under 14 years of age. When the offender is over 18, this sex crime is an off-grid person felony, and falls within the purview of a Kansas Jessica’s Law, which provides for a mandatory-minimum sentence of 25 years without the possibility of parole.

Strong is being held on $250,000 bond, pending formal charges.
