Waldorf man charged with fourth-degree sex offense
A Waldorf man has been charged with a sex crime after a teenage girl accused him of assaulting her on June 3.
Todd Michael Chamberlin II, 22, has been charged with fourth-degree sex offense after the victim alleged that he touched her inappropriately in his room minutes after arriving at his residence where friends and family gathered for a cookout, according to court documents.
According to court documents, on the evening of June 3, the girl and her mother both went to the defendant’s father’s house for a cookout and shortly after arriving, Chamberlin invited the victim to his bedroom and allegedly asked the victim to perform sexual acts on him.
The victim reportedly said no on several occasions to the defendant after he repeatedly requested her to perform sexual acts for money. The defendant asked the victim to give him a lap dance and then offered her some Ciroc. He then hugged the victim and allegedly began to fondle her over and under her clothes.
The victim told police that she observed Chamberlin recording a video of their interaction then observed him sending that same video in a group chat message. According to court documents, Chamberlin continued fondling the victim for another 11 to 20 minutes.
“Chill, chill, just let it happen,” Chamberlin said to the victim according to police documents.
It’s reported that the victim told Chamberlin “no” several times and it was after the victim’s mother called for her to come downstairs that Chamberlin stopped.
“Don’t call it rape or nothing,” Chamberlin allegedly said to the victim.
According to court documents, text messages were exchanged between Chamberlin and the defendant, and that Chamberlin told the defendant, “Don’t tell your mom ever ything.”
On June 4, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office’s application for a search and seizure warrant was granted and the defendant’s phone was seized. Police were able to locate text messages containing videos and messages featuring and mentioning the alleged victim.
A preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 28.
