Jefferson City, Mo. – Circuit Court Judge Carolyn Whittington has ordered Marvin Clyde Lincoln, 63, committed to the Sex Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment Center in Farmington, Missouri, after he admitted he is a sexually violent predator.
Lincoln’s criminal history includes convictions for three counts of 1st degree child molestation of a 12-year-old female and endangering the welfare of a child. In addition, he pleaded guilty to 3rd degree sexual abuse of a 15-year-old male in St. Louis County.
“We must keep those who demonstrate a likelihood of committing further violent sexual acts off the streets and away from those they could harm,” Koster said. “It is important for individuals who are deemed sexually violent predators to get the help they need while the community is protected.”
Those committed by the court as sexually violent predators go into the custody of the Missouri Department of Mental Health. They have the right to have their cases reviewed annually to determine if their mental abnormality has changed and they are no longer likely to commit further acts of sexual violence if released.
