A woman in Wynne, Arkansas is arrested in Cross County and accused of sexually assaulting 9 juveniles.
The Cross County Sheriff’s Office received a report that Veronica Blake sexually assaulted three children since July 2017. However, deputies investigating the case determined that a total of nine children were victimized.
The ages of the children have not been released but according to some reports, they are under 18.
“Any time a person mistreats a child, they need to be dealt with,” said Wynne resident Donny Lopp. “I don’t care who they (sic) is, or how old.”
Word of the arrest spread throughout Wynne. Loop says hearing about this case is a reminder to parents to keep a watchful eye on your children.
“If it’s not your child or someone else’s child, they always come to an adult for protection,” Loop said.
Blake turned herself into authorities without incident on Thursday. She was taken into custody on six counts of rape, six counts of incest, seven counts of computer child pornography and one count of sexual indecency with a minor.
She was then charged with six counts of rape, seven counts of computer or child pornography, and one count of sexual indecency with a minor. She remained in jail Thursday night, according to a detective with the sheriff’s office. Blake’s bond was set at $100,000.
After the news emerged in social media, many condemned the 34-year-old.
