In June 2019, detectives with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office began investigating a complaint of Statutory Sodomy.
According to investigators, 24-year-old Daniel Anderson, of Salem, Missouri, raped, sodomized and molested two female victims under the age of 15-years-old, while living along the 300 block of Duckett Road, in Lincoln County. The victims disclosed the sexual contact during forensic interviews.
Investigators picked up Anderson for questioning. Anderson told investigators he worked full-time for a fire department the victims were liars. He then invoked his right to legal counsel.
Prosecutors charged Anderson with two counts of First Degree Child Molestation, First Degree Statutory Sodomy, Second Degree Sodomy and Rape. Anderson is currently housed in the Lincoln County Jail. Honorable Judge Patrick Flynn set bond at $150,000 cash only.
Other conditions of bond may apply.
