LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -
A Lubbock man is behind bars Wednesday after being
charged with indecency with a child.
Police say 61-year-old David Walter
Thompson inappropriately touched two of his family members over the course of
However, it was
not until a month ago that other family members learned about it.
Carmen Aguirre is the Executive
Director of the Child Advocacy Center of the South Plains and she says situations
like this happen more often than we may think.
"What we do is go out and teach
children about tricky people. We don't teach stranger danger. We teach them
that it's not what someone looks like but it's what they ask you to do or what
they ask you to keep secret," said Aguirre.
Aguirre says the center serves
approximately 700 kids a year and 90-percent of those kids have been sexually
abused. Of those cases, 99-percent of
the time the perpetrator is someone they know. In addition, only one out of 10 children ever report being sexually abused.
If you would like to know more

Thompson was booked into the Lubbock County Jail
