Prosecutors on Wednesday charged a 24-year-old Wichita man with molesting three girls.

A complaint filed in Sedgwick County District Court accuses Curtis W. Drown of three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child in the “lewd fondling or touching” of a 9-year-old, a 10-year-old and an 11-year-old on Sunday.

Drown was arrested Sunday at an address in southwest Wichita after a 30-year-old woman told police he had touched her daughters inappropriately, police documents show. He is held in Sedgwick County Jail on $100,000 bond.

Drown is due back in court Feb. 5 for a preliminary hearing.

Aggravated indecent liberties with a child younger than 14 is a Jessica’s Law crime, which carries a mandatory prison sentence of life without parole for 25 years, upon conviction.
