Polk County Social Worker Accused Of Sexual Assaulting Child In Foster Care

An Arkansas Department of Human Services supervisor has been arrested on sex charges in Polk County.

Arkansas State Police arrested Dustin Horn on Friday. He's charged with one count of rape and one count of sexual assault. Horn allegedly raped an adult woman and had sex with a 17-year-old teenage girl in foster care. Both incidents allegedly took place in 2009. Horn was over the Division of Children and Family Services, the branch of DHS responsible for foster care.

He was arraigned Monday and is being held on a $100,000 bond in the Polk County Jail. The court entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Circuit Judge J.W. Looney requested the Arkansas Public Defender Commission appoint an attorney to represent Horn.

Prosecutor Tim Williamson says the investigation is ongoing and encourages any person with additional information to contact his office in Mena at (479) 394-6114.

DHS spokeswoman Julie Munsell would only confirm that Horn has been fired.
