Additional charges for Staunton man in sex crimes investigation

Legore, Anthony KennethThe Waynesboro Police Department has charged a Staunton man who is already facing over 30 sex crime related charges in Staunton and Augusta County with two additional felony sexual assault charges.

For their part in the multi-jurisdiction investigation, Waynesboro officers obtained two forcible sodomy warrants for Anthony Kenneth Legore, 45 years old.  The charges are related to the same victim in the Staunton and Augusta County cases.  The offense dates on the new charges span 2006 to 2008 when Legore was a Waynesboro resident.

Legore was served the Waynesboro charges Saturday while he was incarcerated at Middle River Regional Jail.  He remains there without bond.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
