KANSAS CITY —A Jackson County jury convicted a Kansas City-area man this week of multiple child-sex charges related to sexual abuse of children 11- and 12-years old, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.

The jury convicted 36-year-old Glenn M. McGinnis of five counts of Statutory Sodomy 1st Degree, Attempted Statutory Rape 1st Degree, Attempted Statutory Rape First Degree and two counts of Statutory Rape 2nd Degree.

According to court records, child victims told forensic interviewers at the Child Protection Center that the defendant had touched their private areas. A second victim, 12, disclosed to Children's Division investigators that the defendant had touched her inappropriately.

McGinnis will be sentenced on June 10, according to Baker.
