Lake Worth man accused of molesting girls at sleepover
LAKE WORTH, Fla. (CBS12) —
A man from Lake Worth is facing three charges of lewd and lascivious molestation after three young girls told investigators he molested them during a sleepover at his house.
The report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says the investigation into the accusations against 53-year-old Cary Dickens Anderson began last February. A 14-year-old girl told deputies Anderson touched her breasts as she slept. A 12-year-old told investigators she touched her private part while sleeping. And a 10-year-old girl said Anderson touched her private part while sleeping.
Case workers with the Child Protection Team interviewed the girls again a few weeks later. They repeated the same story and added Anderson's wife was sleeping in the next room at the time. The girls said they didn't tell anyone at the time because they were scared.
Anderson appeared in court Friday morning. He has bonds totaling $105,000. A judge ordered Anderson to have no contact with the victims or their families, or anyone under the age of 18.
