A Delaware County man charged with raping two girls, a 10-year-old and a 15-year-old, both with medical conditions, waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, Aug. 15, in both cases.
George W. Scott Jr., 46, formerly of Southwest City, Missouri, is charged in Delaware County District Court with two separate cases.
The first case includes two counts of first-degree rape, lewd molestation and rape by instrumentation, all after former convictions of a felony. The second case involves first-degree rape and lewd molestation.
Both victims have been medically diagnosed with several different mental and emotional diagnoses, including schizophreniform disorder, Asperger’s and autism, according to arrest affidavits.
Scott, who is currently incarcerated at an Oklahoma Department of Corrections facility on drug and domestic assault and battery offenses, appeared before Associate Judge Barry Denney for what was supposed to be his preliminary hearing.
Instead Scott waived both hearings and Denney ordered him to return to court in January 2019 for the felony disposition docket.
Several members of BACA, Bikers Against Child Abuse, were at the courthouse, but not in the brief hearing.
Scott was incarcerated in the Delaware County jail for raping the 15-year-old victim when additional assault charges were filed against him in July involving a then 10-year-old victim, online court records show.
He has a long criminal history dating back to 1994, including several convictions for assault on a police officer and domestic assault and battery, drug violations, bail jumping and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
In an unrelated case, Scott, was the center of a federal civil case filed in 2017 against the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department employees, where he sexually assaulted a female inmate in Feb. 2016 while he was incarcerated in the Delaware County jail. That case was settled earlier this year for an undisclosed amount.
