By: Heartland News
SCOTT COUNTY, Mo. - Police arrested a Scott County man for a string of sexual offenses dating back to 1999.
The suspect is 64-year-old Velton Taylor of rural Benton.
He faces charges ranging from statutory sodomy and sexual misconduct to child molestation.
Investigators say they found out about the alleged sexual molestation when several children from the same family were taken in for an exam late last month.
The exam and interviews revealed alleged sexual offenses against the three juveniles, and one adult.
