Joplin man charged with molesting 11-year-old girl, 9-year-old boy

First degree child molestation charges were filed against a Joplin man who allegedly sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Russell Allen Myers (DOB 1979) who is to be held without bond. Jasper County Jail records do not indicate he is in custody.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office were alerted by a cyber-tip from the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children, which had been made aware of a chat history that was allegedly between Myers and another person describing a claim that Myers had been sexually assaulting the 11-year-old girl on a daily basis.

In the conversation, which is described in the probable cause statement, Myers allegedly told the other person that he had "sexual contact with a boy and a girl."

A sexual act was described and Myers said he had done that act with the girl.

During interviews at the Children's Center, the children described things Myers had done to them, according to the probable cause statement, with the boy describing an assault that took place on his birthday.

He's not in custody???? So he can add another victim or two before being locked up?? I was a victim in my childhood and it caused a lot of problems in my life. I believe these kind of offenders need to have their joysticks removed. Or, have people do to him what he did to those kids.

Russell Allen Myers - is another Sick Pedophile - - About Everyday there is a local story of another Sick Bastard Preying on our Children. This is an Epidemic.

When is enough is enough - - Please Protect Your Children - our Greatest Gifts.

Hopefully these 2-Precious Children will get the Counseling they need to overcome these Terrible Acts that have been committed against them.

We need Tough - Judges, Prosecuting Attorneys, and Jurors - to put these Criminals away and take them out of Society. Most cannot be Reformed - and even when they are Released they need to be watched / tracked - the Rest of their Natural Lives.

I would rather see Frontier Justice or have them Executed for these Heinous Crimes - - but we are a PC (Political Correct) Society - - So we have to give them Multiple Chances, to Commit Criminal Acts against our Innocent Children - Give them Slaps on the Wrist, Get Out of Jail Free Cards, Make Backroom Courthouse Deals, and Give Them Probation.

Stop Feeling Sorry for the Criminals and Start Feeling Sorry for their Victims.

He is in custody. He was arrested by cyber crimes, Us homeland security. He will hopefully get what's coming to him in prison when they find out he is a child molester .
