Miller County deputies arrest sex offender for alleged abuse
MILLER COUNTY - Deputies arrested a man following an investigation into alleged sexual abuse, and charges were filed in the case Wednesday.
The victim told deputies Eric Goolsby, 46, of Eldon touched them in a sexual manner. The incident happened while the victim and Goolsby were reportedly driving around.
They ended up on a gravel road, and while stopped, Goolsby allegedly touched the victim in a sexual manner without the victim's consent. Deputies said Goolsby later admitted touching the victim's genitals without consent.
Prosecutors charged Goolsby with sexual abuse and failing to register as a sex offender. Goolsby, convicted in California in 1997, allegedly failed to provide authorities with online indentifiers.
