A Gainesville man, who saw his charges of statutory rape and sodomy dropped in October, was arrested Monday on a new charge of first-degree rape.
The Ozark County Times reports 34-year-old Bryan Mohr is now charged in connection with the alleged rape of a 16-year-old girl sometime between Nov. 3rd and Dec. 1st.
In the original case filed in August, Mohr was charged with statutory rape and statutory sodomy of a 16-year-old girl. That case was dropped after the prosecution was unable to produce a witness willing to testify before a court or jury; however, the designation of being dropped without prejudice means the case can be refiled within the statute of limitations. The victims in the two cases are identified with different initials in court documents, indicating they are two different girls.
According to the probable cause statement in the most recently case, officers were notified by an Ozark County school administrator on Dec. 4th that a student confided to a member of the school personnel she had been raped.
The 16-year-old student reportedly disclosed to the officers and an investigator that Mohr had held her down forcibly and raped her.
The student reportedly detailed an instance in which Mohr, a relative of her mothers boyfriend, stayed the night at their home within the previous month.
