Johnson County deputies charged a registered sex-offender after he allegedly offered alcohol to a 7-year-old.

Trent Vickel, 40, 2525 Highway 6 W., was charged Feb. 26 with supplying alcohol to a person underage.

According to a complaint, Vickel was sitting in the rear passenger seat of an acquaintance’s SUV drinking a beer when he reached through the front-seat opening and offered it to the passenger — the 7-year-old granddaughter of the driver.

The driver told police Vickel then said, “You want a beer, little girlie?” to his granddaughter, prompting him to grab the beer can out of Vickel’s hands and throw it out the window.

The driver also told deputies Vickel offered his granddaughter $1.

Supplying alcohol to person underage is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by a minimum fine of $500.
