(Springfield)–A Springfield man is charged with statutory rape of a 16-year old Laclede County girl. Laclede County deputies said a 16-year-old girl was talking to 41-year-old Oludare Bakare of Springfield for two months. An unidentified family member said the pair met on a chat app called Discord. That family member said the underage girl was having sexual relations with Bakare.
Laclede County Deputies nabbed the man at the victim’s aunt’s house, where he was taken into custody and charged with statutory rape, but later bonded out.
Bakare will be in court Wednesday morning.
