The son of Alton Sterling, who was killed when he fought police officers in 2016, has been arrested for raping an 8-year-old boy.
The fact was that Sterling had a long criminal history and he was a convicted sex offender.
Now it appears his son has followed in his daddy’s footsteps, The Daily Mail reported.
The son of Alton Sterling who was shot dead by police in Baton Rouge in 2016 has been charged with raping an eight-year-old boy.
Cameron Sterling, 18, was arrested after the boy’s 12-year-old brother confessed to their mother that Sterling had allegedly ‘touched’ his younger sibling.
Police were called at around 12.30am on December 9, after the incident was reported to authorities and Sterling is currently being held in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Sterling was left alone with the boy and two other children for around 90 minutes before their mother returned home and was informed of what had allegedly happened by her son.
Following this information she questioned the young child who apparently told her that Sterling had performed oral sex on him.
Sterling, who was reportedly arrested on Wednesday, has previously been diagnosed with severe depression and bi-polar disorder, reports the Advocate.
The alleged victim, who had been taken to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital was questioned by authorities.
He confirmed to police that he believes Sterling performed oral sex on him and asked the defendant to stop.
