Another Arrested for Sex Crimes Against Juveniles

Another Northeast Missouri man is facing sex crime charges after attempting to meet up with juveniles. The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office arrested 42-year-old Jesse Huckaby, of Ewing on October 7th. The day before, the Sheriff’s Office received a tip that Huckaby was sending inappropriate photographs to two juvenile females. Sheriff’s deputies posed as the two juveniles on social media and text messaging. Huckaby drove to a cemetery where he thought he was meeting them for sexual relations. Deputies then took Huckaby into custody. The other arrest of a man from Lewis County happened last week the suspect reportedly thought he was meeting a 13-year-old girl in a park in LaBelle. An investigation of 28 year old James Starr began back in July after the Kirksville Regional Computer Crimes Unit received a tip.
