A Sikestonwas arrested and charged with sexual crimes involving a child. Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter says 23-year old Zachary Caleb Neal of Sikeston is charged with first-degree statutory sodomy and enticement of a child. Walter said an investigation revealed Neal met the 12-year-old victim through a social media website. Sexually-focused Internet conversations led to Neal meeting the victim at the child’s residence and had sexual contacts with the child. Contact between Neal and the victim continued until a family member of the victim discovered correspondence between the two. Neal was interviewed by an investigator Friday afternoon and admitted to the sexual contacts. Bond is set at $50,000.
