Chambers charged with felony sexual misconduct with a minor

Friday, January 4, 2013

David Lee Chambers, 19, was charged with sexual misconduct with a minor, a class C felony, in Greene Circuit Court during his initial hearing on Thursday.

Chambers was arrested on Dec. 30 following an investigation by Sgt. Brian R. Pilant of the Jasonville Police Department.

Pilant began looking into a situation when a man contacted him on Dec. 16 about Chambers allegedly having sexual relations with a juvenile under the age of 16.

The officer called Greene County Child Protective Services (CPS) in to assist on the case.

A CPS caseworker interviewed the juvenile, and another younger sibling.

According to a probable cause affidavit prepared by Officer Pilant, the juvenile described to the caseworker an incident when Chambers is alleged to have touched the juvenile in an inappropriate manner.

Chambers also allegedly engaged in an unprotected sex act with the juvenile even though the juvenile kept saying no.

Pilant conducted an interview with Chambers on Dec. 30.

According to the affidavit, Chambers admitted the incident took place, said it was a mistake, and he wished it had not happened. However, Chambers stated the juvenile never did say no.

Pilant acknowledged that Chambers was very cooperative during the investigation and did not cause any problems. Chambers reportedly told the officer he wanted to tell the truth.

Following the arrest, Chambers was booked in to the Greene County Jail where records listed his home address in Jacksonville, Fla.

His bond was set at $10,000 and as of early Friday, he had not posted bond and remained in jail .

During the initial hearing, the court appointed a public defender to represent Chambers and the case was set for trial on May 14.

I feel his bond should have been set higher why not $100,000.00 I dont understand how they set the bond low on sexual predetors some get higher ones and then low ones. They need to make sure and keep them in jail until their hearing or a decision made on their sentence. I hope he gets quite a few years then he will realize what he has done he took the childhood away from this young girl. He is not a monster but he is sick. I believe a lot of the sexual molesters are sick that sometime in their life this has probably happened to him and no help was gotten for him. Keep him in jail please so he can not do this to another girl or even a woman. thank you
