A 41-year-old St. Joe man accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl appeared in court Friday to face a felony charge of 1st-degree sodomy.

In court documents, police say that according to reports and statements, William Marshall “performed oral sexual activities with the child victim.”

Judge Keith Marquart scheduled a prelminary hearing April 14, and amended Marshall’s bail to $5,000 case plus $20,000 surety.

Marshall will apply for a public defender. He’s being held in the Buchanan County Jail.
