Kansas City prosecutors filed charges back on December 19th against Leroy Green III on nine counts of rape and six counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. Basically they are accusing Leroy of lewd fondling or sexual intercourse with several victims over the last seven years.
Leroy is no stranger to the Wyandotte County Jail either, having been booked into the jail at least five times over the last six years and released on his own recognizance each and every time. Damn, lucky dude, right?
Leroy Green was finally taken into custody this past monday evening and his bond was set at $1 million. Guess his luck finally ran out. That or his father’s patience. Oh yeah. I guess I forgot that part. Leroy Green III is the son of Wyandotte County Sheriff Leroy Green Jr.
Green, Jr smartly enough has decided to stay out of his son’s current legal mess and will not be taking any part in the legal proceedings as well as having disqualified himself from any involvement with the case including any custodial issues. He did issue a statement saying that “As a father I am deeply saddened and disheartened by the charges that have been brought against my son” The jail administrator and deputy sheriff will be handling all decisions regarding Green III.
Hopefully justice will prevail in this case and the sheriff will continue to stay out of it.
