Arrest made in juvenile sexual assault case


Detectives from the Sheriff's Office concluded a year-long investigation in a juvenile sexual assault case, arresting Scott Linn, 57 of Quitman, for one count of rape, and one count of sexual assault.  Linn is currently being held in the Cleburne County Jail on a $150,000 bond.  The Sheriff's Office, along with Quitman Police Department and the Heber Springs SWAT team executed a search warrant at Linn's residence and business yesterday, seizing several electronic devices.  The case Linn was arrested for yesterday involves two separate victims, but detectives are continuing to investigate as they have reason to believe there may be more victims that haven't come forward.  If you have any additional information regarding this case, or other victims, you are encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division during business hours at 501-362-8143.

All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
