Earl F. Withrow – Repeat Sex Offender Molests 7 year old girl


Columbia police yesterday arrested a registered sex offender accused of abusing a 7-year-old girl.

Earl F. Withrow, 53, of 504 N. Garth Ave. was arrested yesterday on suspicion of first-degree statutory sodomy and sexual exploitation of a child. He remained in custody today at the Boone County Jail with bond not yet set.

Columbia police Sgt. Ken Hammond said police began their investigation in July after being notified of a hot line call to the Division of Family Services. Withrow was interviewed yesterday and made incriminating statements about the abuse, Hammond said. The first instance of alleged abuse occurred at a Columbia residence of a relative of the girl, Hammond said. The suspect and victim are not related but acquaintances through family members, Hammond said.

Hammond did not provide a timeframe for the alleged abuse, but he said it is believed to have occurred for months. According to state law, a person commits first-degree statutory sodomy if he is 21 or older and has “deviate sexual intercourse” with someone younger than 14.

Withrow pleaded guilty in St. Francois County in 1996 to first-degree statutory sodomy and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, according to court records. He is listed on the Boone County sheriff’s and Missouri State Highway Patrol online registry of sex offenders.

Justin Blair Andersen – Repeat Sex Offender – Compulsive Penis Flasher

A registered sex offender was arrested Monday after police say he tried to expose himself to a bus full of high school students.

Investigators Tuesday were praising the students for getting an extremely detailed description of the man and his vehicle and remembering the license plate number.

“They had a full description,” said Murray police detective Kenny Bass. “They did a great job. The ability to see him for just a few minutes and gather that much information … you just can’t get a better description of a suspect in a vehicle.”

Justin Blair Andersen, 32, was arrested and booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of three counts of lewdness, all misdemeanors.

The incident happened about 11:15 a.m. Monday at the intersection of 4800 South and State Street. A school bus from Murray High School was next to another vehicle, when the driver of that vehicle held up a sign, “Do you want to see my penis?” said Bass.

“He then reaches down and starts messing with his belt. Fortunately the bus made a left turn and he kept going straight before anything else could happen,” he said.

At least one student immediately called her father on her cell phone and told him what happened. The father called police. Based on the very accurate descriptions of both the man and vehicle, police were able to locate the man at his house about 45 minutes later and arrest him, Bass said.

Andersen was convicted in Vacaville, Calif., in 2001 of indecent exposure. When he came to Utah, he was placed on the state sex offender registry due to his previous conviction.

Bass said the arrest wouldn’t have been possible without the students’ work.

“It was an amazing job done by the high school kids,” he said.
