Mother Gets Prison For Raping 2-year-old Son

Emily E. Thompson, 26-year-old mother from Uhrichsville, Ohio,  will serve at least 10 years in prison for raping her then 2-year-old son in May 2011.

Thompson, of 317 S. Wardell St., pleaded guilty earlier this month to an amended Tuscarawas County grand jury indictment on charges of rape, child endangering and cruelty to animals. Judge Elizabeth Lehigh Thomakos ordered that she can’t have any contact with the boy, who resides with relatives.

Thomakos also classified Thompson as a Tier Three sex offender, which means that for the rest of her life she must register her address with the sheriff’s department of the county where she resides, if released from prison. Thomakos added that she considers the case to be especially serious because of the betrayal of trust by the mother.

In May 2011, Emily Thompson went to the Uhrichsville Police Department and she told officers that she had met a man who talked her into undressing herself and her son and engaging in sexual activity with the child. She also told police that five photos were taken and sent to his cellphone and email account and that another incident occurred where she again was coaxed into getting naked with the child and taking photos nude, but no child sex was involved that time. According to police, they initially thought she was a victim and being pressured into participation, but during the interviews they began to suspect Thompson after more more images of Thompson engaging in sex acts with her son surfaced. Her computers, cellphones and photo storage devices were forwarded to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

The incidents over a period from January to May 13, 2011, were investigated by Uhrichsville police and a county Children’s Services caseworker. She was indicted in September 2012, with the time needed for the testing and the schedules involved accounting for the lag time in the case, the prosecutor explained. During the investigation, a search warrant was obtained for the residence of the 25-year-old New Philadelphia man involved in the case.

The sentence for raping a child is life in prison. However, under the amended indictment, Thompson pleaded guilty to statutory rape. That mandatory sentence is 10 years to life in prison, with possibility of parole after 10 years.
