Douglas PetermanJETMORE – (October 11, 2013) – A Hodgeman County man was convicted yesterday of three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Douglas D. Peterman, 44, Hanston, was found guilty of all three charges by a Hodgeman County jury. The charges fall under Jessica’s Law, because the victim was under 14 years of age. Chief District Judge Bruce Gatterman presided over the trial. Sentencing in the case has not yet been scheduled.

The crimes were committed between August 2010 and April 2012. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Hodgeman County Sheriff's Office and the Kansas Department for Children and Families. Assistant Attorney General Steve Karrer of Schmidt's office prosecuted the case.
