Charles Thompson: Cocaine Made Me Molest 10-Year-Old Girls
Charles Thomspson, 53, admitted to Phoenix police that he molested two young girls on multiple occasions -- but only because he was using a lot of cocaine at the time.
According to court records obtained by New Times, Thompson was arrested on Monday after the two daughters of a woman he'd been living with told police he'd molested them when they were each between the ages of 10 and 12 years old.
The girls told detectives that on multiple occasions, Thompson would lick them where they "go pee."
During one such licking, Thompson told one of the girls he was going to "show her where babies come from." He then "rubbed his private part where he goes pee until white stuff came out," the girl later told detectives.
In another instance, one of the girl's came home from school sick. When she got home, Thompson told her to go "clean herself off." He then performed oral sex on the girl again.
Similar incidents occurred on multiple occasions over a roughly two-year period.
At one point, one of the girls told her mother that Thompson had been molesting her and her sister. The girl's mother threw Thompson out of the house, but let him move back in a short time later -- and the abuse continued.
After he was arrested, Thompson admitting to "kissing" one of the girls on the vagina "a couple of times." As for the other girl, Thompson told police he touched her "all over."
However, Thompson told police he was using a lot of cocaine at the time -- as if that was some sort of excuse.
Thompson was booked on two counts of child molestation, four counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of public sexual indecency, two counts of sexual abuse, and one count of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.
