WICHITA, Kan. — A former Wichita police sergeant and USD 259 security official is facing additional charges involving child sex crimes.

Alex Robinson was a 22-year veteran of the Wichita Police Department when he retired in 2006 to take a job as security supervisor with Wichita Public Schools.

In January 2013, Robinson was arrested after a 24-year-old man came forward, alleging sex crimes that happened more than a decade prior when he was a juvenile. Crimes of that nature typically carry a 5-year statute of limitations, but Captain Brent Allred said last year that certain qualifiers could be met allowing charges to be filed in this case, several years after the statute expired.

Robinson was free on bond until charges were filed in March of this year. He was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sodomy and three counts of aggravated indecent liberties in connection to crimes alleged to have occurred between 2000 and 2002. The victim in that case was 12 to 13 years old at the time.

At the same time, he was also charged with aggravated indecent liberties with an 11-year-old that allegedly happened in June 2012. Robinson was also charged with two counts of indecent liberties with a 14-year-old, alleged to have occurred between August 2011 and September 2012.

Later that month, Robinson was charged with similar crimes in Colorado: two counts of sexual assault of a child in a position of trust. The alleged crimes happened between June 1 and August 31 of 1996, while Robinson was visiting the state. The alleged victim was between 15 and 18 years old.

This week, Robinson appeared in Sedgwick County Court once again and was charged with two additional counts of aggravated indecent liberties.

He now faces a total of 10 charges in the Kansas cases and 2 in Colorado.

He's currently free on bond and scheduled to be back in court in Sedgwick County for a preliminary hearing on September 17.

NOTE: In 2007, then-President George W. Bush was in Wichita and gave Robinson an award for volunteering more than 17,000 hours at the Boys and Girls Club.
