A Mulberry man was arrested Friday on multiple counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.
Brandon Lee Buche, 28, was arrested on a Crawford County warrant for three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14. The arrest was a result of two separate investigations by the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office and Arma Police Department involving three victims.
Detectives with CRSO determined that there was probable cause to believe that Buche committed the aforementioned crimes on several occasions between late 2011 and early 2017.
Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Child is defined by K.S.A. 21-5506 as any lewd fondling or touching of the person of either the child or the offender, done or submitted to with the intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desires of either the child, or the offender, or both. The crime is an off-grid person felony.
Buche is being held on $250,000 bond, pending formal charges.
