A Parker City man has pleaded guilty to three counts of child molesting.
Eric J. Boggs, 28, was arrested in April 2013 after a child who had attended a “body safety” program at Monroe Central Elementary School told authorities Boggs had repeatedly subjected her to sexual abuse.
After initially denying his accuser’s claims, Boggs “broke down and stated there had been some touching going on,” a police officer reported. The Parker City man also allegedly said the assaults took place after he viewed “porno movies” on his home computer.
He was initially charged with child molesting, a Class A felony carrying a standard 30-year prison term, and two counts of vicarious sexual gratification, a Class C felony with a standard eight-year sentence.
More recently, Randolph County Prosecutor David Daly filed three more molesting counts against Boggs — all three Class C felonies. In recent weeks, Boggs pleaded guilty to those charges.
He had been scheduled to be sentenced by Randolph Circuit Court Judge Jay Toney last Wednesday, but the hearing was postponed at the defendant’s request.
Boggs was one of four Randolph County men arrested in the wake of programs, held at local schools in the spring of 2013, aimed at preventing child sexual abuse.
