LAWRENCE, Kan. — A former Lawrence Public Schools custodian has been charged with statutory rape. Nineteen-year-old Mackenzie Lottinville was charged with statutory rape in Douglas County after investigators say he was having consensual sex with a 13-year-old girl.
“Children are not very well protected anymore and they’re taken advantage of,” said Barbara Hicks, who has two children at one of the middle schools where Lottinville worked.
“It’s a terrible thing,” Hicks added.
Through an investigation of an unrelated matter, law enforcement discovered that a crime may have occurred involving Lottinville and a 13-year-old girl prior to his employment by the school district.
