This white monster from Missouri who played Santa Claus will appear in court Tuesday to answer to allegations that he savagely raped a 7-year-old girl.
Jeffrey Bates Moffat, 55, “knowingly had sexual intercourse” and “deviate sexual intercourse” with the child, according to court papers.
He faces first-degree statutory rape and first-degree statutory sodomy charges in the diabolical crimes between August 2014 and January 2015 in Cape Girardeau County, which is around 110 miles southeast of St. Louis.
Both the pedophile’s girlfriend and the president of the “Santa Express” railroad where he’s volunteered for almost 20 years deny the allegations. But Cape Girardeau County Sheriff’s Capt. David James called the child rapist “our pervert Santa” in an email interview with The Washington Post.
“I would say his days are done as far as being a Santa anywhere around here,” James said.
On the other hand, Cheryl Huffman, the board president of the St. Louis Iron Mountain & Southern Railway, told the Post that Moffat is a “giver” with a “heart of gold.” And his longtime girlfriend Patricia Lynch teared up in an interview with the local media.
“Never in a million years would I have dreamt that, never. He’s just not that way,” Lynch said. “He’s just not guilty of this crime. I know that, I just feel that in my heart.” Honks don’t have hearts bitch!
The pedophile was arrested last month and he’ll appear at a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, the Southeast Missourian reported. He’s incarcerated in the Cape Girardeau County jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.
