A not guilty plea was entered for Stanley Myers, 70, in an initial hearing in Pulaski County Circuit Court. He is charged with six counts of child molesting.
According to court documents, the Monterey man is accused of child molesting on six different occasions with six-year-old and seven-year-old children. The acts were allegedly committed over a period of time. Each incident reportedly occurred at a home on 750 North in Monterey.
Three of the child molesting charges are classified as Class C felonies, as they occurred before the July 1, 2014 date of reclassification of felony classes. The other three felonies fall under the new classification as a Level 4 felony.
Myers was arrested on a warrant and booked into the Pulaski County Jail on Tuesday, Jan. 27. He has bonded out of jail after posting 10 percent of a $40,000 bond.
Myers will appear for a pre-trial conference on Apr. 14 at 11 a.m. ET. He has retained Donald Shelmon as his defense counsel.
