Rape Plea

Posted on 9th May 2013 at 16:07

The 15 year-old son of 19th District Senator Brian Hatfield is pleading guilty to charges of child rape and child molestation. An 11 year-old boy claims that Hatfield’s son abused him on multiple occasions at the Hatfield’s home in Raymond, and at a home in Chehalis. Court records show that Hatfield himself became aware of the abuse in February of this year. They say that he worked to keep the boys apart, but didn’t report the incidents to authorities. The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office became involved in the case a couple of weeks ago, after getting a sexual abuse report from school officials. Hatfield’s son was eventually arrested. He entered the plea on Tuesday, admitting to four counts of child molestation and four counts of child rape. To this point, Hatfield has made no comments on the case.
