Purdy man facing pair of sodomy charges

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Combined bonds total $100,000, cash only

A Purdy man has been charged with four felonies after allegedly sodomizing two children at a home in Purdy.

Daniel Gunter, 21, of Purdy, is charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy and two counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

According to two probable cause statements filed by Lt. Terry Meek, with the Barry County Sheriff's Office, Gunter allegedly engaged in sexual activity, not intercourse, with an 8-year-old and a 10-year-old at a Purdy home while babysitting them.

The minors gave details about the incident in interviews at the Children's Advocacy Center in Monett.

Gunter is being held in the Barry County jail on two cash-only bonds of $50,000, as there are separate cases for each of the victims.

He has been arraigned on both cases, and disposition hearings are scheduled for Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in the courtroom of Judge Robert Foulke.
