More sex-crime charges filed against Rippey man

Greene County Attorney Thomas Laehn filed additional sex-crime charges Wednesday against Bradley Erik Purdy, 22, of Rippey.

Additional sex-crime charges were filed Wednesday against a Rippey man arrested Feb. 1 for allegedly sexually abused two boys.

Bradley Erik Purdy, 22, was originally charged with second-degree sexual abuse and lascivious acts with a child-solicitation.

Greene County Attorney Thomas Laehn has added three more counts of lascivious acts with a child along with charges of incest, two counts of child endangerment, assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and indecent exposure.

According to criminal complaints filed Jan. 31 by the Greene County Sheriff’s office, Purdy allegedly committed the crimes against one boy under the age of 10 and another under the age of 14.

On Tuesday Greene County District Court Judge Gary L. McMinimee ordered Purdy to appear Feb. 18 for arraingment.

The suspect is being held in the Greene County Jail on a $100,000 cash-only bond.

*A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
