WICHITA, Kan. — A Wichita man has been formally charged with sex crimes against four young girls.
Last week, officers arrested 31-year-old Steven T. Walters and today he made his first court appearance.
Walters was charged one count of rape, one count of aggravated indecent liberties and four counts of aggravated criminal sodomy.
The district attorney's office says the victims include two eight-year-olds, a six-year-old and a five-year-old. Most of the alleged crimes happened in the girls' home.
Officers are trying to determine if the girls' parents were aware of the abuse, and how long it had been going on.
The Exploited and Missing Child Unit (EMCU) is investigating.
Walters' bond is set at $250,000. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for April 30.
