Buhler High School Debate Coach Guilty of Child Sex Crimes

By  | 

Hutchinson, KS--A Reno County jury says a former Buhler high
school debate coach and teacher is guilty of child sex crimes
involving a foreign exchange student.

Jurors returned a verdict Friday finding Richard Young guilty on
two counts of taking indecent liberties, one count of aggravated
indecent liberties and one count of solicitation of a child.

He is accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old foreign exchange
student who stayed at his home last year.

The student testified last week that Young inappropriately
touched him.
