A Marion County jury finds a man to be a sexually violent predator.
The Missouri Attorney General’s office announced the finding was reached Friday against 38-year-old Norman Tucker III. Judge David Mobley signed an order committing Tucker to the custody of the Missouri Department of Mental Health for care, control and treatment until he is deemed safe to be at large. The Attorney General’s office says Tucker was arrested in 2004 on charges of first degree statutory sodomy. The Missouri Attorney General’s office filed a petition in 2014 to civilly commit Tucker as a sexually violent predator. Tucker admitted to victimizing an 11 year old boy in north Missouri, his girlfriend’s daughter and his two-year-old niece. Tucker also admitted to victimizing two boys under the age of 13 in Colorado, a three-year-old boy in California, and an 80-year-old woman in Florida.
