Additional Information

The charges stem from a St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office investigation that started in April after a 14-year-old juvenile disclosed information of a sexual relationship with Helm, a registered sex offender, that was ongoing for approximately six-months. The relationship started after Helm pursued the juvenile on the internet. At one point Helm forcibly raped the juvenile at a residence in St. Clair County. During the investigation it was discovered sex crimes also occurred in Henry County. Following Helm’s arrest search warrants were served in at his residence in Kirkwood and evidence was seized. Additional charges are pending on Helm in other jurisdictions. Bond is set at $250,000 cash only.
