Souderton Independent - - OBITUARIES - By Bob Keeler

A 21-year-old Soud­er­ton man is ac­cused of hav­ing sex with a 14-year-old girl who was babysit­ting his daugh­ters.

Robert Michael Thomp­son, of the 500 block of Val­ley Lane, was taken to Mont­gomery County Prison af­ter fail­ing to post $150,000 bail fol­low­ing his Aug. 8 pre­lim­i­nary ar­raign­ment be­fore Dis­trict Judge Ken­neth Deatel­hauser, ac­cord­ing to on­line court records.

Ac­cord­ing to the af­fi­davit of prob­a­ble cause in the case, Soud­er­ton Bor­ough Po­lice Depart­ment was con­tacted July 27 by the girl’s mother who said she read text mes­sages from Thomp­son on her daugh­ter’s cell­phone, then talked to her daugh­ter about the mes­sages and the daugh- ter ad­mit­ted to hav­ing sex with Thomp­son.

When the daugh­ter was in­ter­viewed, po­lice said in court doc­u­ments, she said she and Thomp­son had sex two times, once in June and again July 4. The girl said she helped put Thomp­son’s daugh­ters to bed, then she and Thomp­son had sex on his bed in the same room in which the daugh­ters were sleep­ing, po­lice said.

The teenager also said Thomp­son sent a sex­u­ally ex­plicit photo to her cell­phone and asked her to send one to him, which she did, po­lice said.

Thomp­son was ar­raigned on charges of statu­tory sex­ual as­sault, ag­gra­vated in­de­cent as­sault of some­one younger than 16, cor­rup­tion of mi­nors and in­de­cent as­sault of some­one younger than 16. A pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing is sched­uled for Aug. 23.
