Posted March 2, 2012

— Cumberland County Sheriff's detectives on Thursday arrested a 28-year-old Fayetteville man and charged him with sex crimes involving the abuse of a 5-year-old child. 

According to authorities, Brandon Ryan Keisler, of 2511 Nobie Street, engaged in inappropriate behavior with a girl between August of 2010 and June of last year. The child later told her grandmother about the encounter and reported it to authorities. 

Keisler is charged with two counts of a first-degree sex offense. He is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $1.1M secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court Friday afternoon.

    "Another nice boy that someone should have taught right from wrong many years ago or got treatment for. I am willing to bet this is not the first child he has abused.

    REALLY!!!! REALLY!! People choose their own actions. Nice boys do not rape and hurt helpless 5 year olds. Nice boys protect the innocent.
    Report abuse

    To krazikatt2: You are absolutely right. We don't know who dropped the ball as far as monitoring the child. In my case, if you read my post, I was at my grandparent's home, but I was outside playing. Both of my grandparents were home inside the house. I was coaxed into the basement & told to be quiet. I never told anyone. The rapists were longtime friends of my older brothers. No one would have ever suspected they would ever do anything hideous like child rape. At 6 years old, I had no reason to distrust them because they had been around my family for years. It just goes to show that sometimes you never really know people as well as you think. I have a grown daughter & I was extremely cautious about who she was around because I didn't want what happened to me to happen to her. So, when she was growing up, I didn't have a lot of people around, and I was very particular about where she went & who she was around...

    "Why do these women keep leaving their defenseless young daughters alone (even in a different room) with possible predators?? Better to be safe than sorry, I say. kadee123"

    I do not see where the article states that the mother of the child left the child alone with a possible predator. There is mention of the grandmother, but why are you accusing the mother of wrong doing when the article does not indicate anything of the sort. The guilty party could well be the father of the child. And until the act took place, the family may not have had any knowledge of the evil this man intended on committing. No one suspected Jeffry Daimler either. Please get your facts before you sling mud at someone.

    I always cringe when I hear of the sexual abuse and/or molestation of young children. I'm a child sexual and physical abuse survivor. I was only 6 years old when it happened to me by my brother's friends. They were teenagers. Sexual abuse & molestation is awful when it happens to anyone, but it really takes a sick, depraved mind to rape a child. I'm so disgusted when I read stories like this. It seems like every time I pull up a newspaper or tv station website, some type of sexual deviancy has occurred. One thing I can tell you from experience is that this type of abuse at a young age changes who the victim will be when they get older. This is so sad...I pray much for the young victim & other victims that have been violated--young & old.

    You can hear the chants already down on 1300 Western Blvd.; "Fresh Meat, Fresh Meat". This guy is toast...

    Prayers to that precious girl; I've got two that are just a tad older. Can't even imagine...
