Man Had Sexual Contact with 5-Year-Old in St. Charles, Police Say

The St. Charles County man had sexual contact with the girl in 2008, according to court documents.

A St. Charles County man faces criminal charges after police said he had sexual contact with a 5-year-old girl, according to court documents.

Thomas Louis Watkins, 30, of the 4100 block of Chisholm Trail in St. Charles County just east of St. Peters, was charged Tuesday with three counts of first-degree statutory sodomy.

St. Charles Police said Watkins was babysitting children for a family between February 2008 and November 2008 and had sexual contact with the girl on three occasions.

Watkins admitted to police that he watched a pornographic video during the sexual contact. The father later discovered the pornographic DVD in his DVD player after the last incident, but he was not aware of the sexual contact, police said. The incident was reported to police.

The girl did not tell anyone in her family about the incidents until about a month ago, police said in a report.

Watkins is being held in St. Charles County jail in lieu of a $75,000, cash only bond.

I'm happy he's off the street and hope the bail amount keeps him in jail until trial.
