A Cape Girardeau, Missouri man is behind bars on two counts of statutory sodomy.

Courtney Little, 44, is being held on $50,000 cash only bond. His lawyer asked that Little's bond be reduced, but a judge denied the request during a court appearance on Aug. 31.

He is due back in court on Sept. 5 for a preliminary hearing.

According to court documents, a woman went to the Jackson Police Department before midnight on Friday, August 4, 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.

If Little makes bond, a judge set special conditions that he cannot have direct or indirect contact with the victim, or come within 500 feet of her home or place of employment. He is also prohibited from having direct or indirect contact with minors and cannot come within 500 feet of any schools or playgrounds.
