Webster County Deputy Arrested After Allegations of Child Molestation

MARSHFIELD, Mo. -- A Webster County deputy has been arrested after allegations of child molestation.

Brent Grey, 50, of Marshfield, was arrested Tuesday after an investigation of allegations of child molestation.

The Greene County Department of Social Service's Children's Division received a hotline call Jan. 8 pertaining to allegations of child molestation against Grey. The allegations were made by a juvenile female, according to the Webster County probable cause statement.

In the allegation made by the female, she said Grey would touch and massage her when she was 10 or 11 years old. She also said Grey made her touch his genitals.

At about 3 p.m. on Jan. 8 Trooper E. L. Tyrrell, author of the probable cause statement, and Rachel Davis with the children’s division arrived at Grey’s residence in the 1400 block of North Pine Street in Marshfield.

After multiple knocks on the door and identifying themselves, Grey's wife came outside and spoke with Tyrrell and Davis. However, she told them Grey did not want to speak with them.

Outside the same residence, Davis and Sergeant Scott Rawson interviewed the juvenile female, according to the statement. The female said again that Grey had touched and massaged her, making her feel uncomfortable.

According to the probable cause statement, the female's statements have been consistent and were made to between three and four other people before the start of the investigation.

Grey has been terminated from his position with the Webster County Sheriff's Office, according to a Webster County Sheriff's Office press release.

Grey has been charged with statutory sodomy and is being held in the Texas County Jail.

No formal charges or bond information has been released.
