News Release
Arrest: Endanger the Welfare of a Child First Degree
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Aug. 29, 2010

On Aug. 25, 2010, the manager of a state licensed girl’s home located in Pulaski County reported that a fight had occurred between occupants of the residence on Aug. 24 which had caused injury to a 14 year old child.

Deputies responded and began an investigation. The victim had several egg size knots on her head along with other bruises. The juvenile victim was pulled to the floor during the fight and struck her head on a tile floor.

In addition as the manager attempted to break up the fight she was also struck by blows, sustained a broken toe, and also hit her head on the tile floor as she was pulled to the floor during the fight.

The suspect was located at the Waynesville Senior High School and was arrested by deputies. She was taken to the Pulaski County Jail and placed on a 24-hour hold. A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor for charges in this case.

The prosecutor filed one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a class C felony, on 18 year old Sarah Lynn Sagel, of 19252 Lambert Lane, Waynesville, Missouri. The bond for Sagel was set at $15,000 and she remains in the Pulaski County Jail pending the posting of bond


The Pulaski County Prosecutor has now filed an additional charge of assault in the second degree, a class C felony, on Sarah Sagel. Her bond on this charge was set at $25,000 and she remains in the Pulaski County jail.

First let me apoligize for not seeing your post before now. Second, as long as your animals have a way to get out of the weather (a shelter) with access to food and water, there is nothing illegal about having them tied up outside.
The animal laws are abuse and neglect, which in includes failing to maintain control of your animal.
I would like to say this, Thank you for keeping them under control. You do not know how many times we go to a residence and their dogs are at large coming at us with snarling teeth.

Here is another for you.
On Oct 15th, Shell in Buckhorn was taken for $50. The same individual hit 3 places in Lebanon before coming here. 2 out of 3 of those places lost money. The vehicle is a dark maroon almost purple in color 1998 Chevy Malibu with a MO license 545 LXZ. The vehicle has a sun roof. The subject driving appeared to a white male. The passengers were a white female and a black male. If you spot this vehicle please make contact with the Sheriff's Department.

For information,
If any item you does or does not have a serial number, make a mark in a place that will not be obvious. Identifying marks allows us to identify your property without serial numbers. You can engrave it, paint it, scratch it or something. This helps when looking in pawn shops or locating found property.

Houses, barns, cars, and construction trailers are being broken into. If anyone has any information please call the Sheriff's Department at 573-774-6196. You can leave a message for me with dispatch.

Crime Stopper / Re: What's up with this military bank robber?
« on: September 24, 2008, 05:52:46 AM »
The bank robber was caught. A telephone tip lead law enforcement to his location.

Thank you Law and Jt.
Your comments are greatly appreciated!!!!!

I have read through these posts this is becoming very disheartening. I understand there are issues with the commissioners about a law enforcement tax that could help with better equipment and better pay. But what has been eating at me since I read the post about how many patrol cars are at one place eating or even that a family member of an officer rides in a patrol vehicle is the fact that what you dont see is there are many occasions we are not able to stop and eat. There are times the call volume is so high there is not even enough time to stop and grab a cup of coffee. Please understand this, this job is not a get rich opportunity, we understand that. We also understand that we can not promise a certain outcome to your call. But we are here working for the citizens of this county making the very best with what we have to work with. It breaks my heart to see that that just is not enough for some. There is not alot of glory in this job, but there is a whole lot of heart. And when you come on here and complain that there are to many patrol cars in one place or you witnessed a family member inside a vehicle kinda makes me wonder. This job gets hard enough at times, but posts like this makes it even harder. We can not please every one, but we do what we can. Sometimes we come in contact with individuals that complement on doing a good job, but there are more negative comments. Instead of busting our morale, how about boosting it. Thanks for your time.

Crime Stopper / Re: Illegal Aliens?
« on: May 10, 2008, 08:54:43 PM »
Yes, illegal aliens are an issue, but it is not just here. I agree it is overwhelming. The border patrol does everything within their power, manpower, to control this. You can make a call to INS, but I am here to tell you, it is a slow process. I would be safe to bet, their main focus is on terrorist. But they do attempt to control the access to the US. When you have more people entering the US than you have people stopping them, it makes it impossible to catch everyone or even most. Bashing on this thread is not necessary and will not be tolerated. If you want something done, make a phone call!!!!!!

If giving out sources is common practice then just have your daughter walk away, doesnt mean she is not doing the right thing, but if no one cares for her safety, then way should she help them. Her information could be used to locate leads to investigate, never revealing her name. Like I said, if you or her are not comfortable with this, then walk away. There are other sources that have been mentioned like the Highway Patrol.

I am sorry Big Ed,
Thought this thread was open for discussion, not that you were reporting a crime. I understand your feelings with HWY 28. As far as the speeding go, not all of our vehicles have radar's mounted in them. The HWY Patrol, work the highways and interstate all the time. There is something you can do. If you would like to report a C&I driver and willing to sign a complaint, you can contact the Highway Patrol or the Sheriff's Office. We will need a vehicle description, description of the driver and the license plate number. Thank you for time.

« on: January 03, 2008, 05:34:03 PM »
I am not disagreeing with you. Like I said, I do not think the homeowner should be charged for protecting his family even though his address was on the warrant, it was clearly a mistake on law enforcement, not the home owner. I do not have any idea what probable cause was stated to obtain the warrant or what the expectation of the Judge was that issued the warrant. Again, our Judges want more than just an address on a No Knock Warrant or any warrant as far as that goes, before they will ever sign it. These types of warrants are dangerous and there is no room for mistakes. If you are going to apply for one, you better know what you are going into before you get one.

Glad to hear that you do this locally.  We are hearing way too much about rogue cops anymore regarding these types of warrants.  It is much more than violating civil rights.  It is about life and death too.  As I have siad before, I do not remember hearing of this type of thing happening (mistake) in our area.  Having said that, now how do you guys and gals feel about what the vicitim did here?  And why would the police have the unmitigated gall to even consider trying to charge him with a crime?

How do I feel about what the victim did? I do not think I would have reacted any differently, nor would I consider filing charges on the residence. When you execute a "No Knock Warrant", that is a very important factor that has to be taken into consideration.  That is what makes them so dangerous.

« on: December 22, 2007, 04:00:03 AM »
When we file for a No Knock Warrant, we have to give a description of the house and double check the address to prevent things like this from happening. But it does happen. It is not a fly by the seat of our pants. Our Judges do not allow this. They are very particular when they sign their name on the botton of any warrant. This prevents violating some ones Civil Rights. We are better for it.

Well it appears I have been out of the loop for some time here now. Catching up on what has been happening out there. Have to tell you, the only item I came across was a box truck with temperature controlled kennels inside. This seemed unusual to me, so I stopped and inquired to their business. It seems that has long has you are transporting dogs within the state, you do not have to have any health certificates, only when you take them out of state.  All the dognapping is news to me, no ones fault but my own. I will put the information out for all other deputy's to keep their eye's open for strange vehicles with cages. Doesn't hurt to identify individuals. I apologize for not keeping track of what is happening with this category.
