A former employee of the Youth Center on Fort Leavenworth has been convicted this week of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.
Nicholas Clark, 24, was convicted of two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, in this case a 13-year-old girl. He was also convicted of two counts of aggravated indecent solicitation with a child after a week long jury trial.
Evidence in the case was that Clark solicited the child who attended the Center in August of 2014. When the 13-year-old’s mother discovered evidence on her daughter's phone of her conversations with Clark, she reported it to the police.
The verdict was issued Friday evening.
