I simply do not understand how any good mother can allow a man to be alone with her children, without knowing him for a few years, without doing a background check, and without inquiring about any history of violence in past relationships.
Not that any of those things are full proof; but I am pretty sure that this is yet another case of a mother who was more than happy to have a man around to help with the household upkeep, to be a part time babysitter, and a guy to make her feel good about herself.
“A 23-year-old Port Penn man was arrested Thursday on rape charges after evidence was discovered that he performed sex acts on a young girl, police said today.
The suspect, Joshua Jones, of S. Congress Street, was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree unlawful sexual contact, said state police spokesman Master Cpl. Jeffrey Hale.
The victim’s mother called police Wednesday after finding videos on a desktop computer depicting her daughter engaging in sex acts with Jones
When the woman confronted Jones about the videos, he fled.”
“Troopers were in the area of U.S. 13 on Thursday near Drawyer’s Creek just north of Odessa investigating a suspicious person when they found Jones.
Hale said he was taken into custody and taken to Wilmington Hospital for evaluation before being charged with the offenses. He is being held in the Young Correctional Institution after failing to post $55,000 secured bail.”
