LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo. (KSDK) - A 33-year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting his 14-year-old former niece.
Robert J. Wolf is charged with two counts of first-degree statutory rape, one count of second-degree statutory rape, one count of statutory sodomy, and four counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
Police were called to St. Joseph's West Hospital in Lake St. Louis early Thursday morning for a report of a sexual assault that happened in the 800 block of Highway JJ in Elsberry, Mo.
The victim's aunt said she walked into a bedroom to find Wolf, her ex-husband, in a "compromising position" with her niece in bed.
The victim told police Wolf was performing oral sex on her when her aunt walked into the room. She said Wolf "took her virginity" and had been performing sex acts on her since late October or early November when she was 13-years-old.
She said after the first encounter, Wolf started offering her marijuana, and they were usually high when they had sex.
Police say Wolf admitted to instances of oral sex and intercourse with the victim. He is held at the Lincoln County Jail on a $250,000 cash-only bond.
