Edwards Faces Prison for Sexual Abuse of Minor

A 21-year-old man will be going to prison for a sex crime.

According to the Johnson County Attorney's Office, 21-year-old Trevor Edwards has been convicted on one count of sexual abuse of a minor and not guilty on a second count. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison when he's sentenced on October 28th.

Charges stem from an incident in which the Buffalo Police Department received a complaint that Edwards was having sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl.

In a separate case, the county attorney's office documents state that Michael Lindstrom was re-arraigned before District Court Judge William Edelman on August 22nd. He's charged with six counts of sexual abuse of a minor, three counts of sexual assault and two counts of aggravated assault and battery.

The sexual abuse charges carry life sentences, without parole, while the sexual assault charges carry a minimum of 25 to life. Because Lindstrom has previous felony convictions, the aggravated assault charges carry a minimum sentence of 10 years and maximum of 50 years.
