HUTCHINSON, Kansas (AP) – An ex-Kansas bail bondsman has been convicted of six counts for coercing women he bailed out of jail to have sex with him.

A Reno County jury on Tuesday convicted 66-year-old Dwight Jurgens on six of nine counts in a human trafficking case.

He was found guilty on two counts of aggravated human trafficking, two counts of rape and two counts of attempted aggravated human trafficking. He was acquitted of criminal sodomy and two counts of aggravated human trafficking.

Sentencing was scheduled for Oct. 24.

Prosecutors alleged Jurgens told four women he would revoke their bonds if they didn’t have sex with him. The crimes occurred while Jurgens was a bonding agent for TNT Bonding.

Defense attorney Dam Kepfield said he anticipates that the verdict will be appealed.
