CASS COUNTY, Mo. — A game of truth or dare was cover for a man from Oklahoma to molest two young girls in Cass County.

According to a probable cause statement filed in Cass County Thursday, Donald Glenn Shaver, 67, of Coleman, Okla. molested two young girls on multiple occasions under the guise of playing various games, including truth or dare.

The alleged incidents took place in Harrisonville in June 2017, according to court records.

The victims, aged 10 and 12 when the alleged crimes occurred, described Shaver forcing them to perform unwanted sexual acts.

A third child who witnessed the molestation on at least one occasion, but was not physically abused, confirmed the allegations leveled by the young girls.

When confronted by investigators about the allegations, Shaver admitted to sexual contact with the young victims “briefly, every once in a while,” according to the probable cause statement.

He also described knowing his actions were wrong, telling investigators “this is not what we’re supposed to be doin’,” in reference to one incident with the young children.

Shaver is formally charged with one felony count of statutory sodomy – deviate sexual intercourse with a person less than 12 years old, seven counts of statutory sodomy or attempted sodomy – deviate sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 14 and four felony counts of child molestation in the first degree.

A warrant was issued Thursday for Shaver’s arrest, however he remains at large, according to court documents. Bond has not been set.
