Leavenworth County trailer park manager pleads no contest in child molestation

A Tonganoxie man pleaded no contest Thursday to charges that he molested four children in his trailer park home.

Lawrence McDonagh II, 61, could be sentenced to life in prison with no parole for 25 years.

McDonagh is charged with five counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child involving four victims between November 2009 and May this year. The children ranged from 10 to 15 years old. The Leavenworth County prosecutor said the molestations took place at a trailer park McDonagh managed at the time.

McDonagh is in the Leavenworth County jail. Sentencing is set for Sept. 27.
