In a disturbing example of child molestation, a high ranking aide to Governor Deval Patrick’s administration was accused of sexually assaulting a boy in the steam room of a Florida resort, according to a report. Carl Stanley McGee, 38, the assistant secretary for policy and planning was arrested December 28th after the suspected assault and has since been placed on unpaid leave.
“Mr. McGee was placed on unpaid administrative leave effective January 7th pending the outcome of the matter,” a spokeswoman for Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Dan O’Connell, said in a statement.
McGee met the boy, who police said is between 12 and 16 years old in a bathroom at the resort a day before the incident occurred. The next day the two ran into each other in the resort’s steam room. According to the boy, McGee sat next to him, removed his towel, rubbed the boy’s back and shoulders and performed oral sex on him. The boy’s father contacted police after his son informed him of the incident.
