STODDARD COUNTY, MO (KAIT) - A Dexter man faces a charge of statutory sodomy.

Ammons remains in jail with bond set at $25,000, according to a news release from the Stoddard County Sheriff's Department.

According to, the court ordered the probable cause statement to be closed and made it a Level 3 confidential court record because a child is the alleged victim.
