A Parsons man was arrested this week in connection to a series of acts of sexual abuse stemming a number of years, and spanning the county.
Christoper Lee Brooks, 31, Parsons, was booked into the Crawford County Jail on Monday morning. He was charged with three counts of aggravated criminal sodomy with a child under the age of 14, two counts of rape of a child under the age of 14 and one count of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child under the age of 14, entering a secluded place.
“It was a joint investigation between the county and Pittsburg and several other units,” said Crawford County Sheriff Sandy Horton. “It involved alleged abuse in several locations over several years.”
Horton said the acts included the same child, a girl, over the course of several incidents. The Pittsburg Police Department aided with the investigation.
