Glenallen man jailed on sexual assault charges

Friday, November 5, 2004

MARBLE HILL, Mo. -- A Glenallen, Mo., man is in the Bollinger County jail for allegedly sexually assaulting his daughter -- a 22-day-old infant.

According to a probable cause affidavit from the Bollinger County Sheriff's Department, Troy A. Dukes, 34, has been charged with child molestation, statutory sodomy and incest -- all felonies.

According to the statement, a relative noticed bleeding and bruising when she was changing the baby's diaper. The child's mother took her to Saint Francis Medical Center's emergency room. The Division of Family Services was notified, and Kiara Taylor-Paine with the DFS called the sheriff's department, who arrested Dukes.

Dukes allegedly stated that he was alone with the baby changing her diaper when he digitally penetrated her up to his knuckle. He then told the sheriff's deputy that when the baby wouldn't stop crying he spanked her, causing the bruising to her bottom.

Dukes remains in jail in lieu of a bond of $100,000, cash only.
