  • A Camdenton man was found guilty of molesting a 2-year-old child on July 25.
    The child was with her parents when visiting the home of Curtis D. Flint on March 4, 2011. Her mother put her down for a nap on Flint’s couch around 11 p.m. Later the mother was approached by two women who said they believed they witnesses Flint molesting the child. When the mother went to check on the child, she found that her pants and underwear were pulled down. The child’s parents picked her up and left the residence.
    During the early morning hours of March 5, the mother brought the child to Lake Regional’s Emergency Room and requested a Sexual Assault Examination. The examination was conducted and samples were sent to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Lab for forensic analysis.
    On April 5, 2011, Flint consented to oral swabs to be used as known DNA standard during a Miranda waived interview. Those samples too were sent to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Crime Lab.
    On Janurary 5, 2012 the certified DNA report from the Crime Lab was sent back to the Sheriff’s Department indicating that the DNA profile consistent with the known profile of Flint was found from the samples sent from the victim.
    During another interview on February 1, 2012, Flint was interviewed again and stated that the did not inappropriately touch the 2-year-old. He also said that no male member or his immediate family ever met or had contact with her. When confronted with the DNA evidence, he told law enforcement that he had been drinking on that particular night and simply did not remember what happened.
    A sentencing hearing has been set for Sept. 9.
