Police say the girl said they met online, and that he assaulted her once they got to her home.
“I’m uncomfortable in my own home. I’m scared. I can’t sleep at night.”
The teenage girls mother said she found the man inside her daughter’s bedroom. He had been hiding in her closet for five days.
Sheriff’s deputies have appropriately charged 27-year-old Jarred Workman with 11 counts statutory rape and five additional counts of statutory sex offense.
“Just the fact that he would be that brazen. To come up here to meet a girl online and then to try to stay in her residence not knowing what her parents are or what they are about.”
Deputies say that reportedly Workman ran out of the home as soon as the mother discovered him in the closet.
“I was shocked more than anything. I asked him who he was and he said, ‘Jarred Workman and he was 19.”
Police say Workman, who is actually 27, ran out the door so quick he forgot his wallet and cell phone.
The abused girl’s mother wants parents to know the importance of monitoring their children’s online activity.
“The Internet has just ruined that poor girl,” Hamby said. “She was very taken advantage of.”
