Wyandotte County prosecutors charged Zachary Taylor Garrett with attempted rape of a child, attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated child endangerment.
His bond is set at $500,000 and he is being held in the Wyandotte County jail.
The investigation that led to Thursday’s charges began several weeks ago in southern Missouri, according to prosecutors.
