Authorities on Monday charged a 68-year-old Liberty man with two counts of first-degree statutory sodomy involving alleged contact with two girls, ages 5 and 3.

Lawrence C. Browning also was charged with one count of child pornography possession.

According to court documents, police responded Thursday to a call from the girls’ residence, where their mother said Browning had asked her older daughter to submit to a sex act.

Browning later told investigators that the girls had visited over the past few weeks to “play games” which had escalated in recent days, the documents said.

Browning described the various ways he touched the girls, and they him, the documents said. He admitted that he took photos of the girls and that the girls took photos of him while his pants were off, according to the court filing.

Browning told police he was remorseful and had not touched any other children, the documents said.
