Camdenton man charged with sexual misconduct involving a child

A Camdenton man faces four counts of felony sexual misconduct in the first degree involving a child under 15 after an incident last Wednesday at the Lebanon YMCA. Gordon Bruce Mitchell, 74, of Camdenton was charged Sunday by the Laclede County Prosecutor’s Office. Mitchell is currently being held at the Camden County Jail with a $25,000 Cash or Surety bond. Lebanon Officers were contacted by Lebanon Family YMCA last Thursday after a report that Mitchell had been exposing his genitals to children who were attending the YMCA Summer Day Camp, according to Lebanon Police. “After further investigation, this behavior was found to have occurred on multiple different occasions,” according to a Police Department press release. “Mitchell was taken into custody Monday on his warrant by Camden County Sheriff’s Deputies without incident.”
