Man Accused of Sex Crimes While on Bond for Manslaughter

A Springfield man is facing charges related to sex crimes that reportedly took place while he was released on bond in a 2018 manslaughter case.

Austin Larue, 25, is facing charges related to an incident on March 15, 2020. Larue is charged with two counts of first degree rape or attempted rape; two counts of first degree sexual abuse; one count of third degree assault, and one count of fourth degree assault.

A warrant for Larue’s arrest was issued last week and executed by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.

A hearing in the case before Judge Harmison is scheduled for Tuesday, the same day a hearing in Larue’s involuntary manslaughter case before Judge Mark Powell.

Larue is listed as being represented by Attorney Dee Wampler on the sex crime charges; no attorney of record is listed in the manslaughter case on Missouri Casenet.
