Sexual misconduct case bound over for trial

A preliminary hearing was held on July 19th for Charles O'Dell Reece 38,  of Butler who is accused on multiple charges of sexual contact with a student that allegedly took place in April 2018, December 2018 and March 2019.

Reece appeared with attorney Scott Friedrich before Lynn Ewing, A.P.A. representing the State of Missouri and Judge Cory L. Atkins.

Counsel Friedrich advised he received a copy of the Second Amended Complaint filed by the State and waived formal reading of the charge(s) and a not guilty plea was entered. The Court finds probable cause to believe the defendant was involved in the commission of a felony as charged in Counts I through XXVII in the Second Amended Complaint.

The Honorable Judge Cory L. Atkins advised he will forward the cause to the Missouri Supreme Court for judicial assignment. Arraignment date will be determined following judicial assignment. Cash bond in the amount of $50,000.00 is continued as posted.
