Man charged with rape of a juvenile
May 15—EDITOR’S NOTE — The following article contains graphic depictions of child abuse and sexual assault. Discretion is advised.
Charles Moore, 60, Richmond, was arrested by Richmond police on Thursday and charged with first-degree rape of a victim under 12 and first-degree sexual abuse.
According to a citation, on Thursday, an 11-year-old juvenile told a forensic interviewer they had sustained sexual intercourse and sexual contact from Moore, from the ages of nine to ten. The victim said they would visit Moore every weekend for many years and would be alone with him in the house more often than not. The victim described an encounter at Moore’s residence when they were 10-years-old and alone with Moore. Allegedly, Moore brought them to a back bedroom where he took off their clothes and touched them inappropriately. He then allegedly held their legs apart so they couldn’t close their legs and raped the victim. The victim told police it hurt when he did, and they screamed and yelled, so Moore stopped, and they ran to the bathroom and saw they were bleeding. The victim told this story to a police officer, a detective, and a friend, and their story was consistent.
Moore was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
