Advance man charged with sexual abuse

Thursday, October 11, 2012

BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- An Advance man has been arrested for allegedly molesting a child under 14 years of age.

Daniel Keith Dye, 38 of Advance, was originally arrested in September for possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia. Since being arrested, the charges regarding the molestation case were filed.

He now faces charges of the unclassified felony of first degree statutory rape of a person less than 14 and the unclassified felony of statutory sodomy and deviate sexual intercourse with a person less than 14 years old.

On Sept. 11, 2012, the victim's mother, accompanied by the victim, visited the Bell City Police Department to tell officers of the alleged abuse.

The mother stated that her child had been touched inappropriately on multiple occasions by Dye.

The molestations are believed to have occurred in the bedroom of Dye at his home on Freeze St. in Advance.

As the officer questioned the victim, the child reportedly grasped the mother's leg and admitted to being scared. The victim stated that Dye had said that if it was ever told what had transpired, the victim "would be in big trouble."

When asked how long this had been going on, the victim stated "Since I was little," and put a hand parallel to the ground to indicate she was smaller at the time the abuse began.

The victim was able to describe Dye's bedroom where the abuse is alleged to have occurred.

The officer in the report notes that Dye was convicted in 1999 of endangering the welfare of a child after "openly admitting to having sexual intercourse with a juvenile."

A Chapter 491 hearing has been scheduled in the case for Nov. 1, 2012 regarding the testimony of the child victim.

His bond has been set at $20,000 cash-only and he remains in jail at this time.

The American people need to clean up the nation and remove the alcohol and abortion and they need to get Bibles in all our schools in all the grades.

Removal of alcohol is essential. It breeds crime and lessens moral restraint in men.

Join Georgia Prohibition and work to make America safe for children again.

What aggravates me is the fact this guy was a sex offender on the loose! Put him away for good for crying out loud!

What does alcohol and abortion have to do with this, Billy Joe?

Shame just $20,000 and this sicko can be out on the streets raping someone else's baby. Sad to know children are worth only $20,000 in the legal systems eyes. Let it be meth and gosh darn they get a $150,000 bond. Amazing huh???
