A Dunklin County man was arrested this week for sodomy.  56-year-old Wade Zimmerman of Malden was brought into custody Thursday on an outstanding felony count of 2nd-degree statutory sodomy.  According to police, he took a neighbor girl into his garage July 13th and forced the girl to perform a sexual act on him.  He threatened the girl that if she didn’t comply, he would take away her house on his property and one of her animals.  The girl admitted the incident to the Beacon Health Center in late August.  A warrant was issued for Zimmerman’s arrest in late September.  He is jailed on a 30-thousand-dollar cash only bond and goes to court on the 12th before Judge John Spielman in Kennett.
