A Sedalia man was found guilty of statutory sodomy and other charges Friday afternoon.
According to a release from Pettis County Prosecuting Attorney Phillip Sawyer, Andrew J. Skutnick Jr., 55, was convicted by a Pettis County jury that reached a verdict Friday on four counts of felonious acts with a child that were alleged to have occurred in 2014 in Sedalia.
From the four-count indictment, the defendant was found guilty on two counts of first degree statutory sodomy involving a child less than 12 years old, one count of first degree attempted statutory sodomy involving a child less than 12 years old and one count of first degree child molestation involving a child less than 14 years old.
Sawyer presented the matter on behalf of the State and Jeffrey Nilson served as counsel for the defense. Robert Koffman, Circuit Judge for the 18th Circuit Court, presided over the matter.
Sentencing has been scheduled for 10 a.m. April 13 in the Circuit Court of Pettis County.
