BEATRICE – An appearance bond has been set at $75,000 for a Beatrice man charged with sexually assaulting a female runaway.
23-year-old Marshal Oden was arrested last Thursday on suspicion of the 1st-degree sexual assault of a girl who recently turned 13.
Police contacted Oden at a home near 10th and Scott, where the female had allegedly spent the night with the suspect. The girl was dropped off near the YMCA along Scott Street, at 6:15 a.m., according to the police investigation.
Oden faces a hearing in Gage County Court, July 16th. A provision of his appearance bond is that he’s barred from contact with any female under the age of 18.
