According to the police officials, the 48-year-old mater, lated identified as Bret, was taken into custody and later charged after admitting to police that he ra-ed an 8-year-old girl. The investigators were even more ṣhocked when they reaIized what he made her eat! The 48-year-old man, later identified reportedly rented a room at a local motel and was with the 8-year-old girl at the time. The child’s mother became worried after the girl stopped answering her text messages.

Detective and police spokeswoman Schulze said the mother visited the motel later that evening. That’s when the 8-year-old got her mother in the bathroom and told her that Brett forced her to perform several s-x acts and made her eat methamphetamine, as well as smoke marijuana and cigarettes. The mother took her daughter to a nearby hospital and filed a police report. Authorities were able to track Brett down after he left the motel in his car, Schulze said. They conducted a traffic stop and arrested him.

Police executed a search warrant for Brett’s vehicle and motel room. Evidence in the room corroborated the 8-year-old victim’s statements, according to Schulze. During interrogation, Pendleton confessed to police that he gave the young girl methamphetamine by wrapping it in toilet paper and then feeding it to her. He then told police that he engaged in se-ual activity with the girl. Pendleton was charged with one count of statutory so-omy or attempted statutory sodomy deviate se-ual inter-ourse with a person under the age of 12.

He was also charged with one count of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child creating substantial risk. His bond was set at $250,000, and is cash-only. Police said the victim’s mother is not under investigation. They said she was unaware of Brett’s crime until her daughter told her about them. The 8-year-old girl has since been released from the hospital, according to Police Sergeant Steve.
