Casey Smitherman is the superintendent of a school district just outside of Indianapolis in the small town of Elwood, where many of the residents are reported as falling into the low-income category.

Smitherman had become acquainted with a 15-year-old boy who attends school in Elwood and she reportedly felt concern for the recent conditions at his home. She stated that she had, on occasion, given the teen clothing and assisted with household chores to try to provide a bit of relief.

A homeless man who was offered shelter during a storm by a mother of four when she brought him into her home was accused of lewd behavior by allegedly trying to suggest that her teenage daughter should allow him to pay her for sex.

When a North Carolina mother saw a homeless man, identified as 56-year-old Leonard Dale Dover, stuck outside in the heavy rains she invited him into her family home for a place to wait out the bad weather.

While Dover was inside of the house the woman made a quick run to the local Walmart to pick up a few items. Her 13-year-old daughter was home while Dover was there, and while her mother was absent she said that he tried to give her money in exchange for sex and that he masturbated in front of her. The girl reportedly caught some of his behavior on video with her cell phone’s camera.

A Crawfordsville, Indiana man is facing charges after two separate incidents were reported from two teenage girls who have accused him of sexually assaulting them.

In early February a 16-year-old girl confided in her father and shared information with him about how she was the alleged victim of a sexual assault that took place over the summertime in 2015.

The young woman explained to her dad that she and her sister accompanied the accused and one of his friends on a visit to his home so they could all watch a movie together. She said that while viewing the film she had been sexually assaulted by the man that she identified as Zachary W. Grater, who is now 22-years-old. She explained that she didn’t feel comfortable coming forward about the occurrence sooner because she was afraid that had they become aware, she would have suffered from her school peers treating her badly.
