Man Charged with Sex Crimes Against Children by Sheriff’s Office
A Star City man has been arrested by the Drew County Sheriff’s Dept, and charged with rape, 2 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and first degree sexual assault.
Bobby Eugene Price, age 25, had his bond set at $125,000 by District Judge Ken Harper, on Monday.
Both of Price’s alleged victims were under the age of 15 years, in the crime which took place south of Monticello.
When notified about the case, the Lincoln County’s Sheriff’s Dept. picked up Price at his home, and met a Drew County Sheriff’s Deputy in Star City, to transfer Price to Monticello, where he’s being held in the Drew County Detention Facility.
Price had reportedly been considered “a friend of the family” prior the crimes.
The case will be turned over to the prosecuting attorney’s office, upon receipt of the report from the Arkanssas State Police’s Crimes Against Children’s Unit.
