Remorse prompts sexual abuse suspect to turn himself in

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – A Lincoln County man, accused of sodomizing a teenage girl, turned himself in Monday night.

Police said Justin Williams, 30, arrived at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office unannounced and admitted to investigators to sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl on several occasions in July.

Authorities said Williams turned himself in because he felt bad for the victim.

Police said phone messages between Williams and the victim confirmed he was the perpetrator and also showed he felt remorseful about what took place.

Williams has been charged with one count of second-degree statutory sodomy and one count of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

He is being held at the Lincoln County Jail under a $50,000 cash-only bond.
