ST. CHARLES (KSDK) - A 47-year-old man faces charges of rape and sodomy, according to St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar.
Lohmar has charged William Wilburn, of St. Charles, with first-degree statutory rape, first-degree sodomy and enticement of a child.
In May, Wilburn met a 13-year-old girl on a 1-900 telephone chat and persuaded her to meet him in person, according to police records. Upon meeting her, he injected her with a drug and assaulted her. He also took naked photos of her.
Wilburn is currently in police custody on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
Court documents show that Wilburn was convicted of second degree statutory rape and statutory sodomy back in 2007 in St. Francois County.
Those records also show that he was sentenced to five years probation, but that was suspended after two years. Recently he's been under no supervision. The story is sickening.

"The defendant enticed her to meet with him," said Lohmar. "He took her to his home and that's where hese incidents occurred."
"I don't know I've always been scared of letting her run around anywhere by herself and now I am a little more terrified," said neighbor Cassey Laurent, a mother to a 2-year-old daughter.
She can't believe that this sex crime happened in her building under the same roof. She says Wilburn was quiet, rarely if ever was seen with guests and only came outside to smoke.
"Like six, seven in the morning he would come outside for a little while, and then go back inside for the rest of the day, I don't know if he worked," she said.
Lohmar says maybe the worst part of this story, is that it might not be over.
"Based on the conduct that we found in this investigation we have reason to believe that there are other victims out there for sure, who they are, how many there are we don't know yet," he said.
He says the victim's parents alerted police as soon as their daughter told them what happened which was about 24 hours after the incident.
St. Charles police have asked anyone with further information about this offense or other similar ones to contact them at 636-949-3300.
