“Michael Joseph Snowden, 21, was charged with sexual abuse of a child.”
(Michael Joseph Snowden)
Sexual abuse, or rape??? I wish the press would be truthful! Call it what it is.
“Investigators said he was at the Freed-Montrose library branch, 4100 Montrose Boulevard, on Friday and viewing child pornography on one of the library’s computers.”
“A 6-year-old boy was at the library with his father and 9-year-old brother, officials said. The father sent the boys to the restroom to change clothes for a nearby swimming lesson while he waited outside.
“The boy was in the stall. That’s when the defendant walked in behind him and crawled underneath the stall,” said Maritza Ancu, an assistant Harris County prosecutor. Snowden then sexually assaulted him, prosecutors said. The boy screamed, and he and his brother ran out of the restroom, officials said.”
A library employee locked the restroom door, trapping Snowden inside until police arrived, according to investigators.
“Snowden is being held on a $50,000 bond. If convicted, he faces a minimum of 15 years to life in prison.”
Sounds like it was rape.
“Library officials said they have filters on their computers for pornography, but Snowden must have gotten around the filters.
“This is the first that we’re hearing about this. We were not alerted to any inappropriate activity on our computers on that day,” said Sandra Hernandez with the Houston Public Library.
According to the indictment, Snowden has a conviction for aggravated sexual assault of a child that he committed when he was a juvenile in 2005 in Upshur County, Texas. He also has a conviction for assault of a public servant in San Saba County, Texas.
