SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - New charges are filed against a convicted sex offender that was living off and on in two different counties. Prosecutors say Daniel Andrew Pyburn molested two new victims in Springfield from 2009 until February of this year.
Pyburn last registered in Polk County Missouri in February of this year. In the small community of Morrisville, Sheila Rowe was surprised to learn a sex offender lived nearby. “It made my stomach hurt a little bit,” Rowe said while looking at the picture of Pyburn on the Polk County Sex Offender Registry.
In 1990 in Texas, Pyburn was convicted of indecency with a seven year old child. He is now facing seven new counts including sodomy and child molestation for two victims in Springfield. “Both of the child victims disclosed numerous incidents of sexual abuse,” Greene County Senior Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Ami Miller said. “There were multiple acts described by both victims.”
