Joshua Domingo Urrutia, 26, is currently facing two charges in Seward County District Court as the result of a dispatched call to the Liberal Police Department Friday morning.
Urrutia, an employee of Adolescent Support Services, has already had his first appearance and is still being held in the Seward County Jail, according to District Attorney Don Scott. Scott added Urrutia’s bond was set at $100,000 cash surety bond.
“He is charged with one count of indecent liberties with a child, one count of sexual intercourse, fondling, touching a child 14 or more years of age but less than 16,” Scott said. “This is a Level 3 person felony.”
A Level 3 person felony is defined as high risk of repeat offense and a threat to public safety, according to www.wiki.answers.com.
Urrutia will face a scheduling hearing at 10:30 a.m. on July 19.
The incident occurred Friday morning when police were dispatched to the 600 block of North Sherman. Officers arrived at the scene to find a man restraining another male while waiting for authorities to arrive. Police also did not allow photographs of the area due to the fact a minor child was involved.
