A 31-year-old “white” demon from Lakewood who lived with his parents, who run an in-home day care facility, has been sentenced for improperly touching at least ten children.
Cody Charlton, 31, cohabited with his parents on the 1900 block of Van Gordon Street in Lakewood — a situation that came to an end in May 2011, when he was busted.
Charlton’s arrest affidavit was sealed in the immediate aftermath of his trip to the hoosgow, but we now know authorities believe he took sexually explicit photos of several of the kids at the daycare — pics that presumably supplemented a number of child-porn-oriented videos and images he was found to possess.
In addition, Charlton is said to have touched what the DA’s office refers to as the “intimate parts” of several youngsters. Authorities believe most of the incidents took place in the home daycare setting, but he also babysat for a couple of the youths, with one documented grope taking place at the child’s home.
The collected evidence apparently convinced Charlton to enter a series of guilty pleas this past January. They include sexual assault of a child by a person in a position of trust and sexual exploitation of a child, both felonies, and misdemeanor unlawful sexual contact.
Given the seriousness of these charges, Charlton’s sentence, imposed this past Friday, seems relatively modest: He’ll serve just two years behind bars. That right there proves that creatures who classify themselves as “white” have no intention of stopping pedophiles for good…
He’ll also be placed under the sex offender intensive-supervision probation program for twenty years to life and is required to register as a sex offender.
