A 17-year-old Carroll County boy who raped a 9-year-old family friend Thursday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds has been charged as an adult.

Jonathan Fleming, of the 200 block of Montgomery Avenue, 21771, has been charged with second degree rape, second degree sexual offense, perverted practice, fourth degree sexual assault and second degree assault. He is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bond.

The victim is a girl from Carroll County.

The investigation by the Crimes Against Children Unit found that Fleming has been sexually abusing the girl since she was about three years old. She told police that Fleming has forced her several times a year to engage in sex acts at different fairs in Maryland and elsewhere.

Detectives determined that Fleming’s family and the girl’s family were together Thursday at the fairgrounds in the 2200 block of York Road, Timonium, preparing for the Maryland State Fair. The families often travel together to fairs.

The girl told police that during the afternoon Fleming touched her inappropriately at the Cow Palace before moving to a more secluded area. He subsequently took her to the Swine Barn and a trailer owned by the Fleming family. The victim told police that over the course of 15 to 20 minutes Fleming forced her to perform various sex acts, including intercourse.

The girl’s father notified police after being warned by a farmer who became concerned when he saw Fleming and the girl at the Swine Barn.

The investigation into the allegations of prior abuse remains ongoing. Additional charges are possible.

        Probably because he didn’t rape anyone.

    POS…death penalty.

    That being said…how do the parents miss these things? Since she was 3?! I have a daughter…and no one spends any time alone with her, I don’t care who they are, family or otherwise. I tell her all the time, do not trust anyone.

      Wow, you must come from a wonderful family. Lol

      • assfghjkl on September 1, 2015 at 5:56 am

        Why do you say that?

        • Anonymous on September 1, 2015 at 9:00 am

          Well, I would guess that since he won’t let anyone in his family be alone with his daughter, that he suspects his brothers, sisters, parents etc, etc of being pedophiles to some degree. Like I said, must be a wonderful family!

        • Annon1 on September 1, 2015 at 1:29 pm

          Because he made this statement “and no one spends any time alone with her, I don’t care who they are, family or otherwise”. I assume he knows his family pretty well, and, if he doesn’t trust his brothers, sisters, parents, aunts or uncles enough to leave his daughter with them, well, there must be a reason. If you want specifics, I guess you’ll have to ask him!

          • parent on September 2, 2015 at 8:21 am

            Negative. I have a ten year old daughter…and I seldom leave her around anyone, family included? Is it because I don’t trust my family because I have reason not to? No. It is because you do NOT know what anyone is capable of. The ones that are quick to say ‘So and so would NEVER do that’ are the ones that often eat their words.

            To: Parent

            Wow, would I love to hear that converstaion. Gee Mom and Dad, I can’t leave your grandaughter, Suzy , with you because, quite frankly, I don’t trust you!
            Next time you see your parents, present them with some fingerprint cards and tell them you need to run a background check on them.
            I’ll bet the family discussion around the dinner table at Thanksgiving would be interesting.

    • Christina on September 1, 2015 at 12:37 pm

      agreed

    What happened to him? Children don’t come up with these things on their own. God help them all.

      Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?

      Romans 3:10-12 as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; (11) no one understands; no one seeks for God. (12) All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”

      Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

    The typical face a child molester, white male! Josh Duggard & Subway Jared junior the are some sick bastards raping kids.

  17. Anonymous on August 31, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    That is crazy! That means he has been doing this stuff to her since he was 9. Something isn’t wired right in his head.

  18. summer on August 31, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    I think that the police need to investigate a little further into this. In my opinion if a 17 year old is molesting a child,he must be being molested himself. If a 17 year old child is raping a 9 year old child, I am guessing that someone has raped him. The abused abuse.Perhaps instead of painting this kid as a monster & sentencing him to be gang raped( if he hasn’t already in baltimore county jail)they should send him to a counselor for a thorough pre sentence investigation. It would be a shame if this kid has been molested by a parent, relative, or family friend & then is sentenced to a life of rape & horror, while still being a child.In my opinion he should be sentenced to a juvenile facility.

      Thank goodness your opinion does not count. Fry him

    • PeterPan on September 2, 2015 at 7:14 am

      so just because something bad may have happened to him you want to send him to therapy and someday release him back into society where he can destroy another child and her family. thank allah you’re not in charge
