A man is in the Laclede County Jail charged with second degree sodomy of a child and tampering with a witness.
Authorities arrested Marcus Hill of Lebanon.
He is a ten-time convicted felon in Missouri.
Investigators say a woman told them he had sexual contact, two to three times a week, with her from the time she turned 14.
Her parents told police that Hill had intimidated the girl to leaving their house with him.
