The founder of a Christian school in Shawnee has been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14.  Dennis Creason made his first court appearance on Friday.

Johsnon County DA Steve Howe says they believe there may be more victims and they're asking parents to call Shawnee police.

"If your child has disclosed an inappropirate behavior has occured while being at the school, we ask that you please call police. If you notice there's a change of behavior in your child, that could be a sign of abuse and we ask that you contact the Shawnee police department," Howe said. "If your child has, or in the future, discloses that inappropriate behavior has occured, immedately contact the Shawnee Police Department and not do a full interview of your child.  For the integrity of the case and the investigation, we ask that you allow the professionals to do that type of approach with your child.

You can reach Shawnee police at 913-742-6685 or by email at

Howe did not offer any specifics about the allegations against Creason or share any details about the allegations came to light during a news conference.

Creason is being held on a million dollar bond.
