A La Monte man faces charges of child molestation, sodomy, statutory rape and incest after being arrested on Tuesday.

The Pettis Co. Sheriff's Office says 44-year-old Adan Aguilar-Cardenas is being held in the Pettis County Jail on a quarter million dollar cash-only bond, following allegations of sexual abuse of a female family member.

Aguilar-Cardenas was arrested at his home in La Monte, and was charged with 4th degree child molestation, first degree sodomy, first degree statutory rape and two counts of incest by the Pettis County Prosecutor.
