    WA - Robert Comte for child rape, Tacoma, 2010

    O.K. this is horribly sad. Just a warning.

    A woman who purchased a donated cell phone at a Goodwill turned it over to police after she found video on the phone of a child being raped.

    The phone had belonged to Robert Michael Comte of Tacoma, Washington aged 32. LE used information in the phone to locate Comte including a woman that tearfully told police Comte had recently babysat her child. A blanket in the video was identified as one in the woman's home.

    LE identified Comte as the man in the video. He is being held on $500,000 bail. Charge is 1st degree child rape. They better not let this guy out.

    Ya know what? There's more to this of course.

    I can't open those PDF files, but there is one with this guy's name on it for Washington State. As far as I can read it says something about "offender treatment program" then says alcohol, methamphetamine. It's obviously not a new file.

    So, (((((sigh)))) do we have a meth addict babysitting? A man drunk off his behind? I mean who just donates a cell phone with child pornography on it? Donates it or gets rid of it? That Chester guy who got rid of that tape in the dessert?

    If anyone can google this guy's name with the wrod meth and it will come up if you can open a PDF file. TIA

    I tried it (google name_meth) and my results point to this thread I dont see any pdf's at original link.

    even before you mentioned meth I still raised an eyebrow at "male babysitter". I guess I just never EVER hear the term mentioned unless something bad has happened.

    snipped........................................... .......

    Police said the victim’s mother told investigators Comte was a friend of a man she was dating, and that Comte and his girlfriend had recently babysat for her, taking care of her 3-year-old daughter.

    Detectives obtained a bench warrant for Comte, who was arrested Thursday.

    On Friday, Comte's bail set at $500,000. He pleaded not guilty

    Considering what is alleged to be on the phone, this is a minor thing, but the article says the employee of the goodwill store took the phone for her personal use. Does not seem appropriate to me-are the employees allowed to take things for their personal use that were donated to charity?

    This article says mother of the child Comte was babysitting told police Comte was recently using drugs and himself was molested as a child by a babysitter. Male babysitter, let alone one who allegedly used drugs recently-is that really a good idea to let this guy to babysit a 3 year old little girl?

    "The woman tearfully told detectives that Comte had been using drugs recently and once confided to her that a baby sitter sexually abused him when he was a boy, the documents state."

    2goldfish, I am so sorry. I checked again. There's someone by the guy's middle name who has something to do with the prison system. My bad. Thanks though.

    O.K. let me get this straight. The mom knew the guy was on drugs, and was molested by a babysitter. This is her friends boyfriend, right? Would these people be your first choice as babysitters?

    The whole things smacks of meth. If I made a thread for every child sexual abuse case that is related to meth I'd fill up Websleuths.

    First of all this is a woman that left her child with a known drug user who admitted to having been raped himself as a child. I may be wrong here but she don't sound too much on the ball. This is just speculation, and I hate blaming anyone other than the abuser here, but I would think perhaps the mom herself is an addict. Again just speculation. If she is this lady is lucky she even knows where the child is let alone what happened to her.

    Secondly, there are children raped all the time and evidence is either wiped away or explained away. I can see why you would wonder this, but if the child was just acting strangely, and has bruises outside the body a parent may explain it away.

    As sad as it is this is how these monsters keep reoffending. Not to mention a 3 year old doesn't even know what that is. What language would she have to tell her mother that?

    Of course you could be right and the mother was aware of it because of the drug use. I pray not. However, a rape can occur on a child and a loving, caring parent not know.
