WEBSTER COUNTY, Mo. (News-Leader) – Prosecutors say a Webster County man admitted to sexually abusing two children.

Tommy Speer, 37, was charged Monday with five counts of statutory rape and five counts of statutory sodomy.

That follows charges of child molestation that were filed against Speer two weeks ago.

Court documents say Webster County sheriff’s deputies took a report on April 28 from a girl who accused Speer of touching her inappropriately.

When deputies went to interview Speer that day, court documents say he admitted to touching one girl on the breasts and butt and also repeatedly sexually abusing another child.

Both alleged victims are younger than 14.
