In January 2023, the Dothan Police Department was notified of allegations of sex crimes against a juvenile that had occurred over the past few years. An investigation has been ongoing since that time. As a result of the investigation, on March 13, 2023, warrants were obtained on the suspect for several sex crimes against a juvenile. All of the sex crimes involved the same victim. The suspect has been identified as Marlo Antonio Ming.
On March 14, 2023, officers made contact with Ming and arrested him for the outstanding warrants. At the time of his arrest, Ming was in possession of a firearm that was determined to be stolen. He was also in possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and other material indicative of narcotic sales.
As a result, Marlo Antonio Ming, 26 years-old of Dothan, has been charged with two counts of Sexual Abuse of a Child less than 12 years old, one count of Sexual Abuse Second Degree, one count of Rape First Degree, one count of Receiving Stolen Property Second Degree, and one count of Possession of Marijuana First Degree. His total bond was set at $156,000.00.
Due to the sensitive nature of this case and the Alabama Juvenile Privacy Laws, no further information will be released.
