Last month Daily RFT reported
on the arrest of 63-year-old Ronald Little on charges that for years he'd sexually assaulted a female relative who's now just 14 years old. At the time, police suspected that there may have been other victims as well.
Yesterday, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney backed up the police department's assertions, in charging Little with sexually abusing two other female relatives. He'd already been charged with 10 counts of sex crimes, including child molestation and statutory sodomy. Yesterday prosecutors added 106 more.
That's right, 106. The charges include the following...
3 counts of 1st Degree Child Molestation
8 counts of 2nd Degree Child Molestation
2 counts of 1st Degree Statutory Rape
31 counts of 2nd Degree Statutory Rape
7 counts of 1st Degree Statutory Sodomy
43 counts of 2nd Degree Statutory Sodomy
1 count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child
1 count of Enticement of a Child
2 counts of Forcible Rape
2 counts of Forcible Sodomy
2 counts of Incest
1 count of Possession of Child Pornography
3 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Minor
Little was also charged with one count of unlawful possession of a concealable firearm bringing the total number of warrants against him to 117.
St. Louis police could not confirm to Daily RFT
whether or not Little now holds the record for the number of criminal charges ever filed against one person in the city. Still, you gotta think it's up there.
Little is being held without bond.
