“SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) — A state law enforcement officer faces multiple charges after two 8-year-old boys told authorities he repeatedly sodomized and sexually abused them.
Channel 3 News has obtained a police report detailing abuse that the children say began in June of 2016. Authorities say neither child knew the other disclosed information about the abuse.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) Agent Charles Calvin McMullen faces two felony counts of sexual assault/battery on a victim under 12 and two counts of lewd lascivious behavior, victim less than 12.
McMullen, who has been with the FDLE for five years, is on paid administrative leave.
He worked on cases with the Gulf Coast Kids House and the Santa Rosa Kids House, centers that advocate for abused children.
On Friday, October 28, deputies with the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office (SRCSO) responded the Santa Rosa Kids House in Milton where a Department of Children and Families (DCF) investigator was working child abuse case.
The investigator informed deputies that an 8-year-old reported McMullen had been touching him “downstairs on his private part” on a frequent basis. An investigation was immediately launched.
A DCF investigator said McMullen “began to cry” when she informed him about the allegations. The child’s revelation led investigators to interview a second child.
The second 8-year-old told an investigator he doesn’t feel safe because McMullen had been inappropriately touching him and made the child reciprocate on multiple occasions.
He said McMullen told him this was “between you and me” and not to tell anybody because it would break up his relationship.
Following this disclosure, the Gulf Coast Kids House interviewed the second child, who said McMullen touched his private parts. He said McMullen touched the other child underneath his clothing on his penis.
The child said the abuse began when both children were 7-years-old. He said McMuMullen made them perform sex acts like sticking their fingers in his buttocks, putting their mouth on his penis.”
What is it that drives some people to control others?
Look at the characteristics of child molesters and the number one motivator is control
Look at the characteristics of a wife abuser and the number one motivator is control
Who gets up in the morning and says I want to strap on a gun and handcuffs?
Who says I want my job to be one that allows me to control people all day?
Do as I say or I will physically overcome or kill you
Just remember the next time you see a cop
Who he might really be
Whether in court as a “Sworn officer” or on the highway
You never know who that “Hero” with a gun is
Don’t give them the benefit of the doubt and risk your life
For your own safety and that of others have a camera that you can film every encounter with
Where cameras are present he is much more likely to keep his gun in his holster
I really hope that this scumbag gets his
Either from someone on the street
Or on the inside
