Sikeston man accused of sexual assault
SIKESTON, Mo. -- A man who worked at the SEMO Food Bank was charged this week with sexually assaulting a person who volunteered at the organization.
Roger B. Woolsey was charged Monday with felony sexual assault for allegedly inappropriately touching a female, whose age wasn't given in a police probable-cause statement, while she was staying at his home. The two weren't in a relationship, according to the victim.
Food bank director Karen Green said Woolsey was an employee of the organization, but he has been suspended and isn't allowed on food bank property. Nothing inappropriate is alleged to have happened at the food bank while the victim was volunteering there, Green said.
No lawyer was yet listed for Woolsey in online court records late Wednesday, and no hearings in the case were listed in the records. The charge carries with it up to seven years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
