A previously convicted sex offender accused of raping two young children in Clark County has been indicted.
Charles C. Skelton, 44, faces three counts of rape and three counts of gross sexual imposition.
The victims were 6 and 4 years old at the time of the offenses, according to court records, which deputies alleged occurred in Pleasant Twp. continuously between May of 2016 and March of this year.
Skelton is currently listed as a tier-2 sex offender by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, court records say. He was convicted of indecent liberties with a child in 2009 in Beaufort County, N.C.
A child rapist from Spring Valley has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for attacking an 8-year-old girl twice.
The Rockland County District Attorney's Office also announced that Eduardo Najera, 34, of Ohio Avenue will serve 20 years of post-release supervision as part of his March guilty plea to one count of first-degree rape, a felony.
The two rapes happened between June 1 and Aug. 28, 2015, in Najera's residence.
"Today's sentence is a measure of justice for the young victim in this case who endured a traumatic ordeal at the hands of the defendant," Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe said in a statement.
GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A Montana man has been arrested and charged with felony sexual intercourse without consent involving a 7-year-old girl.
Court charging documents state Gerardo Reyes Jr., 23, was arrested and taken into police custody after the girl told a teacher about the abuse.
A Great Falls Police Department affidavit filed Aug. 31 states that the unidentified victim reported the abuse on the second day of school.
According to the affidavit, school officials called the Department of Family Services, who in turn called the Great Falls Police Department. The little girl was taken to the Cascade County Child Advocacy Center, where investigators completed a forensic interview.
The victim’s recorded testimony was both graphic and detailed, and she told investigators that the assaults had occurred on a number of occasions.
The police affidavit states that the victim claimed to have told her mother about the assaults, but her mother told her that “it must have been a mistake” and that Reyes, Jr. “must have just placed his hand on her butt.”
Reyes also told the little girl not to tell anyone about the incidents, and that it was a secret.
After the interview with the victim, police detectives spoke with the mother. The police affidavit states that the mother confirmed her daughter had told her what had happened, but she only understood this to mean that Reyes had placed his hand on the girl's hip.
Detectives spoke with Reyes, who agreed to come to the police department for an interview.
Reyes was arrested and charged with felony sexual intercourse without consent. He was transported to Benefis Health System for a suspect sexual assault examination, then taken to the Cascade County Detention Center.
Under Montana law, if an offender 18 years of age or older is convicted of felony sexual intercourse without consent with a victim who is 12 years old or younger “the offender shall be punished by imprisonment in a state prison for a term of 100 years” and may be fined up to $50,000. Such an offender would not be eligible for parole for the first 25 years of imprisonment.
