Larry Kent Kirchner
Larry Kent Kirchner, 49, of North Platte was charged Thursday for sexually assaulting of a woman living at the Pawnee Assisted Living Hotel.
The 25-year-old woman told police that a man made sexual contact with her without consent on the sidewalk outside the hotel. She said they were acquaintances, but did not have any type of sexual relationship.
Investigators believe Kirchner assaulted the woman. He was charged with third degree sexual assault. His bond is set at $5,000.
Dating back to May 2011, Kirchner’s has been arrested for criminal trespass, disturbing the peace, two counts of third-degree assault, DUI, refusal to take a breath test and he’s failed to appear in court four times.
Kirchner was a stabbing victim in January. After an argument with Benny Reuben outside the Cedar Lodge motel, Reuben stabbed Kirchner twice in the stomach, police said. Kirchner was taken by ambulance to the hospital in serious condition. Reuben was arrested and spent six months in jail for aggravated assault.
Kirchner was arrested for forgery in April 2009 for cashing a fake $750 money order at a North Platte liquor store. Tier One Bank rejected the money order as counterfeit, and Kirchner was arrested.
