Jeremy Robinson is the third person charged in a 2019 Lake of the Ozarks rape case.

Robinson was charged with a felony count each of rape and sodomy.

According to a probable cause statement filed in Morgan County, a woman told investigators she met Carl Mort and Cassandra Wedeking at a bar at the lake in July 2019. The couple took her to another location, offered her cocaine, and raped her on a boat that was docked, the statement says.

Mort and Wedeking told investigators the sex was consensual.

After the sexual assault, the victim went to a regional hospital. Results from a sexual kit reveal that DNA collected did not match Mort or Wedeking.

On Aug. 2, 2020, Robinson was court-ordered to provide a DNA swab. More than two weeks later Robinson's DNA matched a sample taken from the woman's sexual assault kit, the document said.

Deputies said Robinson admitted to "wandering around" and looking for Mort and Wedeking the night of the suspected sexual assault. The probable cause said Robinson boarded Mort's boat but did not go inside.

Robinson told deputies during an interview he did not have sex with the alleged rape victim.

Mort and Wedeking face multiple charges including rape, sodomy, drug possession, and other crimes. Their court cases were moved from the original jurisdiction of Morgan County to Miller County.

Online court records say Robinson was arrested on Aug. 25. The records included he posted $25,000 of his $250,000 bond on Thursday.
