It was one of 7 indictments on Friday by the Frederick County Grand Jury.
A Frederick man whose alleged to have sexually abused a girl when she was 12 to 13 years of age was indicted Friday by the Grand Jury. Trenton Leroy Thompson, 48, was charged by the panel with 2nd-degree rape, 2nd-degree sex offense and sexual abuse of a minor.
State’s Attorney Charlie Smith says the incidents occurred between 2011 and 2012. “The police became involved in that particular case back when a 16-year-old girl told relatives she was abused repeatedly by Thompson in 2012,” he says.
Investigators looked into the case, and confronted Thompson about the allegations. He admitted to the offenses and apologized. “Based upon their investigation, they did charged Mr. Thompson with the rape and sex abuse of a minor counts, and Grand Jury did indict him for those counts as well,” says Smith.
