Green County, MO (2/13/18) A probable cause statement says that a male approached a 14 year old girl while she was walking in her neighborhood last November.
The driver asked the girl to have sex with him in exchange for $5000. The girl declined and the driver sped away. The girl was able to get a photo and described it as a red color ford truck.
On January 19 while walking in her neighborhood the girl observed the same red truck drive by and almost come to a stop before driving away. She was able to write down the license plate number and reported it to the police.
The plate number registered to 35 year old Joseph Shirley.
On January 25 the girl identified the driver as Shirley from a line up. Shirley confirmed the truck in the picture was his and that he frequently drives through that area on his way home. However, he said he never stopped or talked to anyone in the neighborhood.
