Wichita attorney charged with sex crime

A Wichita attorney whose clients have included people charged with sex offenses faces a sex crime charge himself.

Sean E. Shores has been charged in Sedgwick County District Court with aggravated indecent liberties with a child and faces a preliminary hearing later this month.

A crime is alleged to have occurred on Dec. 5 against a 12-year-old girl, court records show.

Shores made his first appearance in Sedgwick County District Court on Thursday, with his preliminary hearing set for June 17. He was released on $20,000 bond.

Shores could not be reached for comment, and his attorney, Philip White, did not return calls requesting a statement.

On his practice's website, Shores lists offices in Kansas City and Wichita.

The site describes Shores as a criminal defense attorney handling cases involving felonies, misdemeanors, driving under the influence, sex offenses, drug-related charges and traffic tickets.
