Columbia Pastor , Dale Johnson , Charged with statutory sodomy, Child Material

A Boone County man was arrested Friday for sexually assaulting a girl multiple times, and having child pornography.


The assaults allegedly happened several times dating back to 2013. The victim was under 14 years old at the time. 
42-year-old Dale Johnson turned himself in to the Boone Co. Sheriff's Department late Friday afternoon. 
Johnson is a youth pastor at a Columbia church. 
Johnson is charged with two counts of first degree statutory sodomy and one count of possession of child pornography. 
Detectives began investigating Johnson on February 10 after the Missouri Division of Children's Services received a hotline call.
According to a probable cause statement, the assaults happened at Johnson's home and at the church. 
The victim told investigators Johnson digitally penetrated her and forced her to engage in oral sex. 
In those documents, the victim said some of the incidents happened at Johnson's home after his children went to bed. She said Johnson told her not to tell anyone about what happened because he would get in trouble.
