KANSAS CITY, Kan. Authorities have arrested the son of the Wyandotte County sheriff on charges that he victimized three children.

Thirty-five-year-old Leroy Green III of Kansas City was arrested last night after authorities asked for the public's help finding him.

Green was charged earlier this month with nine counts of rape and six counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

The counts accuse Green of engaging in lewd fondling or sexual intercourse with his victims, all of whom were under the age of 14.

The charges allege that the acts began in 2001 and continued until
August.

Bond for Green has been set at $1 million.

Wyandotte County Jail Administrator Jeff Fewell told The Kansas
Star that Sheriff Leroy Green Jr. was aware of the charges against
his son, but was not commenting.
