Man to stand trial in molestation of woman with disability

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A suburban Kansas City transport van driver has been ordered to stand trial in the sexual molestation of a young woman who is developmentally disabled.

The Kansas City Star reports that 74-year-old Terry Mize Curry was bound over for trial Wednesday on the felony charge of aggravated sexual battery after waiving his preliminary hearing.

Johnson County court documents say that surveillance video captured Curry sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman last September. The woman was a participant in a program for young adults with special needs operated by the Olathe school district. Curry was a driver for the company that contracted with the school district to provide transportation.

The charge says the woman was unable to give consent to sexual contact because of “mental deficiency or disease.”
