LIBERTY — A Liberty man was indicted by a Casey County Grand Jury on Friday on 34 counts of various sexual crimes against three mentally handicapped adult females.
Michael E. Burt, 62, of 506 Ridgefield Drive, was arrested June 6 at his home by KSP Trooper Ricky Brooks and charged with 10 counts of third-degree rape and 20 counts of third-degree sodomy, court records show.
Since the initial arrest, Burt has been charged with four counts of second-degree sexual abuse involving two other women, the indictment states.
The new charges allege Burt subjected each of the two women to sexual contact on at least two separate occasions.
Further, the indictment states the three women were incapable of giving consent to the alleged sex acts because they are “mentally retarded.”
