Democratic judge is asked to pick prosecutor in Maryville case

Associate Circuit Judge Glen Dietrich will consider the request to appoint a special prosecutor, who would investigate alleged sexual assaults of two teenage girls in Maryville, Mo., in January 2012. He is the only Democratic judge in the five-county district, according to state records. Roger Prokes, the 4th District presiding judge, is a Republican, as is Nodaway County prosecutor Robert Rice.
