Missouri man faces new charge after sodomy charges dropped
TUSCUMBIA (AP) — A Missouri man faces a new charge several months after a judge ordered authorities to drop charges accusing him of sodomizing an infant.
Aaron Michael Fisher was recently charged with first-degree assault. About a year after, a Cole County judge ordered that two charges of sodomy be dismissed because Fisher had been denied a speedy trial.
The Kansas City Star reported Fisher was arrested after the new charge was filed. His bond is set at $100,000.
A hearing on the new charge is set for Monday at the Miller County Courthouse in Tuscumbia.
Fisher's lawyer, Kimberly Kollmeyer of Jefferson City, declined comment.
