Cape Girardeau man to go to trial on 3 counts of statutory sodomy

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - A Cape Girardeau, Missouri man is scheduled to go to trial in February of 2018 on three counts of statutory sodomy.

Courtney Little, 44, is accused of assaulting the victim on three different occasions.

Little is out on bond. The judge ruled that he has to wear a GPS tracking monitor and have no contact with the victim as conditions of bond.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges.

According to court documents, a woman went to the Jackson Police Department before midnight on Friday, August 4, 2017, to report that she had been sexually assaulted by Little.

The victim told Sergeant Ryan Thieret that Little picked her up from her place of employment and during the drive, the victim said Little pulled her shirt up and fondled her breasts.

He then pulled into the parking lot of a school in Jackson where Little allegedly told the victim to get in the back seat of the car where he allegedly performed oral sex on the victim.

Thieret wrote that the victim said Little then forced her to perform oral sex. When the victim started to cry, she said that Little apologized and said he would never do it again. He then reportedly gave the victim $40.

Little was interviewed at the police department. He claimed that he just pulled over at the school parking lot to finish a conversation. Little denied having any sexual contact with the victim.

The jury trial is scheduled for Feb. 6, 2018.
