Plea entered for forced kiss on teen

(KAIR)--A 61-year-old Leavenworth man pleads guilty to force-kissing the teenage nanny of a neighbor.

Michael Moreau, last week in Leavenworth County District Court, pled guilty to battery in connection with the 2021 incident.

According to a release from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, the case was initially charged as a sexual battery, but input from the victim led to the change because she “felt it provided the best and most comfortable outcome for her.”

Sentencing for Moreau is set for April 12.

Thompson, in the release, explains that Moreau, on September 8, 2021, went over to a neighbor- home during the day, but the owner was not home. Present were the 17-year-old nanny and the neighbor- infant child, with Moreau asking the teen if he could come inside. When he was allowed in, Thompson says, Moreau grabbed the nanny and kissed her on the lips without consent.
