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.
