Galena, Mo.- A man from Galena is being held on $250,000 bond after he was charged with seven counts of first-degree statutory sodomy last Friday (11-21-14).
Court documents say on November 19, 2014, a 10 year-old girl confided in her grandmother that Anderson, a family friend, allegedly made her watch pornography on the Internet and gave her a sex toy.
The child told investigators with the Lakes Area Child Advocacy Center that Anderson sexually assaulted her in the bedroom of his home and used various sex toys on her. The girl said Anderson molested her over “the past few months,” according to the probable cause statement.
When a warrant was executed at Anderson’s home on Blues Road they found several sex toys in a shoe box in a closet in Anderson’s bedroom.
Anderson, who owns Tin Bender Body Shop near Branson West and is a sponsor of Bonnie and Clyde Days in Reeds Spring, is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow in Galena.
Anderson was released from jail after posting $100,000 bond on November 26th.
