Marion County Prosecutor David Clayton’s office says a Hannibal man faces statutory sodomy charges following an incident on Sunday.
Charges were filed Monday against Eugene Clark Smith following an incident at a residence in the Hannibal area. A probable cause statement indicates the victim’s mother contacted the Marion County Sheriff’s department when she became aware of the incident. Smith is held at the Marion County Jail. Court records indicate Smith has a prior conviction for rape in Shelby County and faces a mandatory life in prison without parole if convicted.
