Library issues ban against resident
Man, 41, faces charge of lewd act
Basehor police served a 41-year-old Basehor man with a letter last week that revokes the man's library privileges and bans him from the building indefinitely.
The man is charged in Basehor Municipal Court with a sole count of lewd and lascivious act. The charge stems from a statement a woman gave police Monday that she witnessed the man fondling himself while at a computer inside the library.
His name is being withheld because of a policy of this newspaper not to name persons accused of sex crimes until they plead guilty or are convicted.
During a meeting last Wednesday, the Basehor Community Library board unanimously approved banning the man from the library. Janice Garcia, board president, said the board acted swiftly to revoke the man's library privileges.
