EDITOR's NOTE: The Missouri Department of Correction must conduct an assessment of Bosma within 120 days, at which time the court will decide whether he should serve the rest of his sentence or be on supervised release. The Cooper County prosecuting attorney said he will oppose releasing Bosma into the community if a court decides to do so. Bosma will be in custody during the assessment period.


A former Boonville radio host will serve 15-year sentence after violating probation condition after he pleaded guilty to a felony count of child molestation in August 2020.

Robert Bosma violated his probation by admitting to watching adult porn during a polygraph for sex offender supervision.

Bosma was originally charged with first-degree child molestation less than 14 years old but pleaded down to a felony count of child molestation.

This is the second time Bosma has violated the terms of his probation, the first time he had alcohol 15 days after being sentenced.

Bosma was arrested in October 2019 for having sexual contact with a child less than 14 years old. The incident happened in July 2019.
