A 38-year-old Wentzville man was arrested and charged in early September with one count of statutory rape and one count of statutory sodomy in a sexual assault case involving his biological daughters.
According to a probable cause statement, the children reported multiple incidents over the last four years in which their father sexually assaulted them, exposed them to pornography, and struck one of the girls with a closed fist. The children also stated that their mother was aware of the assaults and would watch.
Bond for the suspect was originally set at $100,000, but was reduced to $75,000. The suspect was ordered to have no contact with his children, or with any children under the age of 17.
70 West Sentinel is not releasing the name of the suspect in order to protect the privacy of the children involved.
