A Ridgedale man is facing multiple charges in connection with alleged sex crimes with a girl under 14.
Cody Maberry, 24, is charged with first degree statutory rape or attempted statutory rape with a person less than 14 years of age; enticement or attempted enticement of a child (actor 21 years of age or older and child less than 15 years of age), and second degree sexual trafficking of a child under 18.
He could face life in prison if convicted on all charges.
Court documents accuse Maberry of sexually abusing a girl during the spring and summer and forcing her to send him nude pictures of herself.
The victim said Maberry threatened violence against her or her family if she refused to send picture or reported the abuse.
Maberry has no lawyer listed in Missouri Casenet.
