HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A South Hutchinson man facing three charges associated with sexual abuse of children was bound over for trial Monday after his preliminary hearing.
Shawn Rosenberg is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, one of which falls under Jessica’s Law, meaning he could receive a life sentence on that count alone if convicted. The state made a plea offer that would have lowered the time in prison if convicted, but the defendant turned it down.
A 15-year-old girl was going to Horizons for depression. It was learned during a session that she had been sexually abused for some time by Rosenberg. The abuse started at a home in Great Bend, but then occurred at a home in South Hutchinson.
Another woman alleges she was sexually abused by Rosenberg as well. She says the abuse went back to when she was 13.
Rosenberg is free on bond and will be arraigned on the three charges next month.
