The Platte County Sheriff’s Office is asking people to come forward if they believe they may have been sexually assaulted by Charles Hill. The 35-year-old was charged with statutory sodomy against two different girls on October 20. Now, authorities believe there may have been more victims.

The victims were 12-years-old at the time of the abuse. Since charges were field, a 25-year-old woman and a 15-year-old also came forward saying that Hill had sexually abused them. During the course of the investigation, investigators uncovered specific information which leads them to believe there may be additional victims.

“We strongly encourage anyone who has been a victim or knows someone who may have been victimized by Charles C. Hill to call the Platte County Sheriff’s Department or the TIPS Hotline,”  said Sheriff Richard Anderson.

You can alert your local police department or call  Detective Russell Smith with Platte County at (816) 858-1803 or the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
Hill is being held in the Platte County jail on $100,000 cash only bond.  If convicted on the three counts of statutory sodomy, Hill could face life in prison.
