Randy Brice Heminger has been charged with a Class D Felony for failing to register as a sex offender and not registering a change of address. Police conducted a Sex Offender check and noticed that Heminger had last registered on Mar. 2, 2022. Missouri law requires sex offenders to register every 90 days. In addition, if an offender changes residents, they must inform the county sheriff in person and in writing within three business days of the change.
Heminger has also been charged with a second Class D Felony for tampering with a motor vehicle of the 1st degree. On Jul. 27, 2022, a victim arrived at the Webster County Sheriff’s office to report their vehicle was taken sometime in the evening prior. The vehicle, a 2009 Toyota Rav 4, was found rolled over and crashed south of Marshfield city limits around 8 a.m.
According to the crash report taken by Highway Patrol, there were two people in the vehicle. One of which was Heminger, who, after the crash, took off while the passenger stayed behind and spoke to authorities. Heminger escaped on foot and eluded authorities for two and a half hours before getting apprehended by Marshfield PD.
Heminger pleaded guilty to 4th-degree child molestation on 01/10/2022 in Webster County and 1st-degree Tampering in Vernon County in 2020 and was on probation and parole at the time of the new offenses.
The range of punishment for a Class D Felony, as enhanced to that of a Class C Felony, is imprisonment in the custody of the Missouri Department of Corrections for a term of years not less than three and not to exceed ten years; a fine not to exceed $10,000, or both imprisonment and a fine.
Heminger is set to appear for a bond hearing in front of Judge Chuck Replogle on Aug. 4 at 1:00 p.m.
