Man Faces 79 Sex Counts in Attacks on Girl

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas man is bound over for trial 68 counts of rape and 11 counts of sodomy stemming from attacks over five years on an alleged victim who is now 18.

A Riley County judge set a September 29th arraignment for Ben Hinchsliff, formerly of Manhattan and now living in the Topeka area. Prosecutors said the 39-year-old Hinchsliff had sexual-related encounters with the girl at least once a month between late 1999 and mid 2005.
