Norris City Man Arrested On Multiple Counts Of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault

A Norris City man is scheduled to appear in White County Court on Thursday December 8th on a litany of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault charges.  Norris City Police say they were tipped of a warrant for 42 year old Ronald Howell of East Street.  At that point, Officer Kody Jones found and pulled over Howell driving a blue Dodge Charger with illegally tinted windows and loud exhaust.  After advising Howell of the warrant, he was taken into custody with bond set at $10,000.  Howell is facing a total 8 charges that date back to February 2012 in one case.  Howell is also facing an additional charge that allegedly occurred in July of 2020.  All of the alleged victims in the case are under the age of 13 and at least one is a family member.  Howell will be in court for a motion hearing Thursday afternoon.  A final pre trial is scheduled for January 5th and a Jury Trial will get underway January 17th if a plea deal isn’t reached.

    Unfair to hold a trial in the same county that employs the accusers.

    I agree with Lisa and the concerned citizen! This is so far from the truth and this is why people can’t trust the police. So sad that people would make up this disgusting filth and put a man’s life on the line all because they are crazy and have money and think they can do whatever they want!Karma is a b*tch and I pray to god this isn’t the end to this story!
