Texas Man Jailed in Boone Co. on Suspicion of Sodomy
BOONE COUNTY - The Boone County Sheriff's Department announced Tuesday that a Texas man has been jailed on suspicion of first degree statutory sodomy and for furnishing pornographic materials to a minor.
The department said it arrested 24-year-old La'Anthony D. Murphy Monday after a 12-year-old girl reported she was assaulted by the suspect at her home in the 4400 block of Santa Barbara.
The victim's 13-year-old brother told deputies that Murphy showed him pornographic images on a cell phone.
Deputies said the investigation began when officials at the girl's school discovered evidence of the assault and contacted the sheriff's department. Bond has yet to be set for Murphy.
