MO Republican Indicted, Charged With Sexual Assault Of 14 Yr Old Girl
JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri state Rep. Scott Muschany, R-Frontenac, was indicted today in connection with a reported sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl on May 17, the day after this year’s Legislative session ended.

The alleged victim is the daughter of a state employee. The girl’s mother and Muschany -– who is married and has two children — were romantically involved, the woman said.

A Cole County grand jury returned an indictment today charging Muschany with the Class C felony of “deviate sexual assault.” The indictment identifies the victim only by initials. It says that on May 17, Muschany “had deviate sexual intercourse” with the girl, “knowing that he did so without” her consent.

The document also alleges that the mother “did admit that the incident did take place, including her witnessing same.”

It gets worse. Muschany co-sponsored a bill in 2006 that toughened sex offender laws.

No, I'm not kidding.
