Eldorado man wanted on sex charges busted in Marion County
SALINE/MARION COs.—Brian Bowlby is running no more.
Bowlby, 36, of Eldorado, was caught yesterday several counties away—Marion, specifically, in Centralia—wanted on a warrant out of Saline.
The warrant was issued on charges that Bowlby committed Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child against a family member under the age of 13 at the time of the alleged crimes. There are twenty specific counts in the charges, which are Class X felonies; this would mean that there are 20 charged instances of alleged sexual misconduct between Bowlby and his victim.
The incidents occurred, according to court files, between August 2001 and December 2002. Saline County’s sex crimes prosecutor, Eva Walker, advised us a few months ago that sex crimes can be charged against someone up to 20 years after the alleged victim turns 18, so the chronology here is nothing unusual (just ask Ricky Turner…) and Walker is to be commended for pursuing such cases as aggressively as she does.
Centralia police took Bowlby into custody 01.21.11 and he’s expected in Saline County court probably this week on a first appearance and setting of bond. Watch the site for updates, and the print version of course will have the full story, next one on stands February 9!
