Cooper County prosecutor recommends prison time for former Boonville radio host


The Cooper County Prosecuting Attorney said his office is recommending a former Boonville radio host serve prison time after allegedly violating the conditions of his probation.

Online court records say a motion to revoke Bob Bosma's supervised probation was filed on Thursday, 15 days after he was sentenced.

The prosecutor, Eric Phelps, said Bosma recently violated his parole after consuming alcohol.

Bosma was sentenced to five years of supervised probation Aug. 5 after taking a plea deal on a felony charge of child molestation.

As part of the deal, he could face up to 15 years in prison for violating his probation.

"With this type of case, any probation violation would result in this office recommending the probation be revoked," Phelps said.

As of Friday afternoon, court records did not show any new court hearings in Bosma's case. Bosma will have the chance to admit to the probation violation or deny it during his next hearing, Phelps said.
