(KNZA)--A jury has found a former Doniphan County Sheriff's deputy guilty on five child-sex related charges.

The jury returned the verdict Wednesday in the trial of 35-year-old Nathaniel Keller

He was found guilty of criminal sodomy, three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and furnishing alcohol or cereal malt beverage to a minor for illicit purposes .

Keller was acquitted on a charge of promoting obscenity to minors.

Sentencing was set for November 8th.

The trail began Monday in Doniphan County District Court.

Keller was charged with sex crimes alleged to have occurred in 2017 with a child 14 or 15 years of age.

He was arrested in June of 2021 after Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents served a search warrant on his home.

Keller also faces nine domestic-related charges stemming from alleged incidents in 2019 and 2021.

He remains in the Doniphan County Jail after his bond was revoked last month.
