The Kansas City Star is reporting that a judge found enough evidence Monday to try Leroy Green III on charges of rape and aggravated indecent liberties with two children.
Green will have a second preliminary hearing on May 11 for eight similar counts with two other children. Authorities have said the four children were under age 14 at the time of the alleged crimes.
Green is the son of Wyandotte County Sheriff Leroy Green Jr., who is up for re-election next week. He has said that he is leaving the responsibility for his son's custody to the undersheriff and others.
