Charlie Mabern Hamrick, a former football
coach at Tate High School and church youth
minister has been charged with 40 counts
of child sex abuse. The 54-years-old
American who was arrested last week after
a year-long investigation is being accused
of molesting little boys, dating back to
1997.
According to Florida authorities, he was on
Wednesday charged with over 40 counts of
child sex abuse, providing obscene material
to minors, lewd and lascivious behavior on
a victim younger than 12, and an additional
charge on a victim age 12 to 16 after the
victims came forward with sexual assault
claims.
In the report, officials also indicated that
there may have been more children, as they
have recently identified eight additional
victims. Hamrick, who is being held on
$525k bail in Escambia County Jail, is
scheduled to be arraigned on April 20.
