A Marquand man is facing charges for committing repeated sexual acts with a minor between July and August of 2016, according to a probable cause statement obtained from the Madison County Circuit Clerk’s office.
A Fredericktown police officer responded to a request by a Fredericktown school resource officer on Oct. 4, 2016 regarding incidents that had been reported to have occurred off of school property.
Upon arriving at the school, the officer was introduced to a 14-year-old student who reported several sexual encounters with Ty Alexander, 34, of Marquand. The student later provided information regarding the encounters at the Children’s Advocacy Center in Farmington.
The same officer then made contact with Alexander at his home and was given permission to search the residence. The officer obtained DNA evidence which was sent to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Laboratory, which eventually further implicated Alexander in the acts.
Alexander is charged with felony statutory rape in the second degree and felony statutory sodomy in the second degree. He was being held on a $25,000 bond, cash only.
