There’s something uniquely horrifying about a person who will harm a child. Of all the things that a person can do, child sexual assault is considered so terrible that even hardened criminals will attack child molesters.
A man who earned a living by holding daily yard sales is in a Mecklenburg County Jail, accused of sexually abusing a 9-year-old who helped him.
The person arrested appears to be this person. He’s a multiple felon who specializes in theft of one sort or another, though he was also convicted of Discharge of a Firearm.
The child asks a poignant question.
“His statement to me was ‘Mommy, what if he gets out of jail and he’s mad at me and comes and tries to kill me?’ How do you answer that?” the mother asked.
Well, I’d answer it like this.
