Jackson County teen may be tried as adult in sex case

A Mayetta teen may be tried as an adult in a child sex case.

According to the Jackson county attorney, 16-year-old Weston Hasty engaged in “lewd touching” with a 3-year-old at a day care operated by Hasty’s mother.

Prosecutors say the Kansas Department of Health and Environment has suspended the mother’s day care license.

A hearing to determine whether Hasty will be charged as an adult is set for August 29th.
