Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department released information concerning a recent statutory sodomy investigation.
Joshua Lawrence Westfall, 34, of Silex, was charged Tuesday for Felony Statutory Sodomy of a female child.
According to Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office detectives, the child initially refused the demand to perform oral sex and was told by Westfall, “she had to learn soon or later.” Westfall eventually forced the child until he told her to stop.
During a forensic interview, the child provided graphic details of Westfall’s genital area which was confirmed by investigators.
In an interview with Westfall, he asked investigators how could he prove himself innocent when he wasn’t.
Westfall is charged with Felony Statutory Sodomy in the First Degree and is currently housed at the Lincoln County Jail under a $100,000 cash only bond.
Those charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
