Wyandotte Man's Bond Increases After Sexual Harm Hearing


 A Wyandotte man accused of harming 10-year-old twin girls sexually has his bond more than doubled after a hearing yesterday.

 50-year-old George Christensen is being held in the in the Delaware County jail on $455,000 bail on five counts of rape and two counts of forcible sodomy. He is accused of committing these crimes while on a suspended sentence for raping a 9-year-old girl in 2012. Court records show he also has previous convictions involving girls in the Joplin and Webb City area.

 Christensen is also accused of sexually abusing other girls in a Grand Lake mobile home park near Cowskin Bridge.

 Court documents say Christensen told the victims not to tell their parents or his wife because he knew he was going to get sent away. A witness saw one of the acts take place and contacted authorities. The alleged sexual abuse took place between December 1st, 2015, and Dec. 31, 2017, while Christensen was on probation.

 Christensen faces up to a life sentence if convicted. His preliminary hearing was set for July 12.
