58-year-old Otis Lambert faces one count of 1st degree Statutory Sodomy and one count of 1st degree Child Molestation. A probable cause statement from the Howell County Circuit Court filed by Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster on July 15 states that between the dates of December 5, 2009 and February 1, 2011, Lambert had sexual intercourse multiple times with two juvenile females who were under the age of 14 at the time of the alleged incidents. The documents do not differentiate between the juveniles or list how many times the alleged acts took place.
The documents state that one of the unidentified juveniles told forensic interviewers that Lambert had sexual contact with her multiple times in the West Plains area, beginning when she was in kindergarten.
At report time, Otis Lambert was held on $250,000 bond.
