Michigan Child Molester Says His Victims ‘Wanted It’

Convicted child molester Jason Michael Spencer reportedly believes that he does not deserve punishment, even though he is facing even more charges related to child sex abuse. Raw Story reports that the 27-year-old man is a repeat offender who has molested numerous children. Even though he has multiple victims and has admitted to molesting another child, his reasoning for not wanting to be punished is downright outrageous.

An affidavit from the Kent County Sheriff’s Office details various statements made by the convicted molester. Among those statements, Jason Michael Spencer attempted to justify his actions by telling authorities that his child victims wanted him to sexually assault them. Spencer reportedly admitted to sexually molesting a 10-year-old boy, but told authorities that the child had come onto him, and that he wanted the sexual contact. He said it was the child who had approached him in the first place.

Spencer has a long rap sheet, and he is currently serving time in prison for more than one offense. For starters, he is serving one sentence for sexually abusing a six-year-old boy. He’s also serving time for at least two different break-ins. These incidents took place between 2006 and 2009. Now he admits to molesting a 10-year-old child starting in 2012. He faces three charges of criminal sexual conduct stemming from his contact with this 10-year-old child.

According to the affidavit, Jason Michael Spencer sexually assaulted the child the first time after the boy fell asleep while watching the movie A Christmas Story. He then committed a series of sexual offenses on the boy over a span of at least two months during 2012. He tries to justify these actions by telling authorities that kids come to him wanting sex and he is unable to resist their advances.

Spencer is far from the only person to use this defense against charges of child molestation. In 2014 convicted child molester Mario Caruso claimed in court documents that his victims were “culpable” in incidents where he sexually abused him. The two girls he abused, by the way, were only eight and nine-years-old. In 2013 an Oregon man claimed that he was the victim of a nine-year-old girl’s spite when it was discovered that he had allegedly taken inappropriate photos of her. Just this year a 23-year-old Florida man tried to blame a six-year-old girl over a sexual assault. After raping her twice, he told police that it was “the girl’s fault this happened.”
