BG man accused of child sex crimes

A Warren County grand jury indicted a Bowling Green man Wednesday on two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

Barry L. Cripps, 41, 450 Norris Road, is accused of unlawful sexual contact with a teen.

The teen showed Bowling Green police text messages between herself and Cripps in which police said Cripps asked the teen if she was OK with the direction of their “recent relationship,” according to police records.

Cripps has not yet been arrested on the indictment. A $5,000 bond is sent in the case.
