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.

UPDATE 11-29-14:  

Anderson was released from jail after posting $100,000 bond on November 26th.

Norman Anderson Why would they let him out on bond? If he could pay $100,000 to get out of jail he could also have enough stashed away to get out of the country really. Sounds like they found the smoking gun I bet his business is down the drain. How much does the town know about his convicted felon son who can't be employed anywhere else due to his record.People had better start with background checks before they let their 10 year old visit the family's friend it seems a little strange that he would have so much access to this child. Like the old saying you never know what goes on behind closed doors. When is Norm's court date will he go to trial? May God help this little girl and her family. At least Norm will get a strong taste of his own medicine soon.

His business needs officially shut down. If people go to his business then they are saying they support crime against children
