A 34-year old man from New Franklin, MO was recently arrested after an investigation into a sexual assault that involved a juvenile in the jurisdictions of Moniteau and Cole Counties.

The Moniteau County Sheriff's Department says in a press release that in July 2018, authorities received a report of the sexual assault.

Moniteau Co. deputies conducted a preliminary investigation and then contacted the Missouri State Technical Assistance Team (S.T.A.T.).

The S.T.A.T. investigators interviewed witnesses in several jurisdictions then submitted a report to the Moniteau County Prosecutor for charges.

On July 26, charges were filed against the suspect, 34-year old John Rollins, of New Franklin. Rollins was arrested and taken to the Moniteau County Jail for 1st Degree Sodomy. His bond was set at $250,000.
