Raeford man faces child sex charges

Posted December 3, 2008

— Cumberland County deputies have charged a Raeford man with sex crimes involving a minor.

William Joseph Holman, 30, of 404 Cypress Road, was charged with one count each of sexual activity by a substitute parent, taking indecent liberties with a minor and disseminating obscenity to a minor. He was being held Wednesday in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $60,000 secured bond.

Investigators said Holman fondled a 14-year-old girl and forced her to watch a pornographic video. The encounter was alleged to have occurred last year while he and the victim were alone in her home, authorities said.

    I say if he is found guilty, execution is warranted.

    It was her step-father, that's why they were alone. It also dosen't say that he is in the military because the Army is trying to hide it, or that she was 11 when it happened.

    I want to know why this man and this girl were alone in her home. He still had no right but why???

    If found guilty, 25 years in prison with no possibility of parole. PERIOD!!!

    Praying for the child.

    God bless.

    Child abuse and child molestion is the worst crime of all - if he's guilty he deserves no mercy!!! Castration is a good punishment.
