On Thursday, Ray Alfred Golden, 81, of Baxter Springs was found guilty of attempted indecent solicitation of a child in Cherokee County District Court. Golden entered a plea of guilty in lieu of proceeding to trial, but maintained his innocence to the court.

According to Cherokee County Attorney Jake Conard, in August 2015 Golden attempted to persuade a child to enter his residence with the intent to commit an unlawful sexual act upon the child.

As a result of the conviction, Golden, who was an elementary school principal in Columbus, Kansas for 35 years, will be required to register as a sex offender in any county where he resides.

Sentencing will be held December 5, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. in Cherokee County District Court.
