A 20-year-old Indiana man is facing two counts of child molestation for allegedly having sex with a 12-year-old girl after his girlfriend dared him to.
Cody Blankenship denies he ever had sex with the girl, but that once when he was playing truth or dare with his 16-year-old girlfriend and her 12-year-old cousin, his girlfriend dared him to have sex with the younger girl.
His girlfriend’s parents dispute that, saying that their daughter is traumatized and never dared Blankenship do anything of the sort.
They say that back in January they found condoms in the bedroom their daughter shares with her cousin, and the 12-year-old eventually admitted to having had sex with Blankenship.
“She didn’t want to admit it, but after awhile she had come clean and said things had been happening and that Cody had snuck in her bedroom three different times. There’s stains on the mattress, I mean, it was really, really bad,” one parent said.
Police say Blankenship had sex with the 12-year-old on at least two occasions, a claim he vehemently denies.
Blankenship’s father is sticking by his son and says he doesn’t believe the accusations.
“I know my son wouldn’t do anything. I have no doubt whatsoever. My son would never do nothing like that,” he told reporters.
