This is one of those stories that will have any parent outraged. 20-year-old Ricky Adams from Ohio, allegedly walked in on a 17-year-old boy molesting a 5-year-old child. Allegedly, the 17-year-old was performing oral sex on the 5-year-old when Ricky immediately pushed the teen off the child and began beating him up. After, Adams called police. Police responded and ended up arresting the teen and Adams! Adams is being charged with Felonious Assault and could possibly be sentenced to 2-8 years in jail.
“I was doing laundry and I walked out and there was the 17-year-old who had a 5-year-old’s pants down to his ankles and he had the 5-year-old’s penis inside of his mouth,” Adams said, adding he started attacking the teen after getting him away from the child.
“He said that the 17-year-old had touched him right there and that he had previously touched him the night before," said Adams. “I kind of just snapped, I didn’t know what to think."
Adams ended up filming the aftermath of the attack showing the teens bloodied face and hands and posting the video on Facebook. Adams stated he regretted posting the video:
“I do feel sorry for the video. I should not have posted that and I do feel remorseful for the video situation. I want everyone to stop all the child offenders and predators that are out there. I don’t want no child to have to go through that."
Obviously, Adams had what some would say a natural response to walking in on a child molester in the act of molesting a child! But, police filed charges claiming Adams took the matter into his own hands for "vigilante justice." Adams stated he blacked out during the attack because he was molested himself as a child. He went further to say he was especially outraged as he is soon to be a father.
Now, Adams is facing a lengthy legal battle in the future and is afraid of not being there to raise his daughter. Adams has set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for his legal expenses. As of today, they have raised $37,000.
The teen whom allegedly molested the child, has been charged with two counts of rape and two counts of gross sexual imposition in Juvenile Court.
Just for context, this isn't the first time this has happened. When a father walked in on a teen molesting his child, he beat the BREAKS off him. The father was NOT charged. Recall the story in the video below.
