Birdno charged with five felony counts of sodomy
A Monroe City man, Jason Dennis Birdno, is being held on $150,000 cash only bond in the Monroe County Jail after being arrested on five felony charges of statuatory sodomy in the first degree.
Birdno, 36, was arrested after an investigation by the Monroe City Police Department and the Missouri Department of Social Services. They were aided by a technical assistance team from the State of Missouri.
Birdno, a white male, is charged with forcing a 13-year-old female to perform oral sex on him two to three times a week since December 2006 through July 2011 at his home at 822 Second St. In the probable cause statement, the victim told police that Birdno had told her not to tell anyone what he was doing and he had choked her when she refused to perform sex acts at his request.
Police conducted a search warrant at Birdno’s home and seized items that they believe would contain bodily fluids.
A protective order, under the CC Child Protection Act, was filed previously in March 2012 in Monroe County. Birdno also has numerous traffic ticket violations, in addition to several civil judgments, according to Missouri Court records.
He is a union ironworker who works out of state.
