Michael Easley, 24, was arrested on Sunday, October 6th after an 11 year old girl reported that he had sexually assaulted her while giving her a tattoo.
Two girls had evidently gone to Easley's home for marijuana and cigarettes. While there, however, Easley is accused of giving one of the girls a tattoo and assaulting her. The friend reported to her grandmother about what had gone on at the home and the grandmother then called the police.
The victim initially denied anything had happened, or that she had even been at Easley's home.
An officer with the Carbon City Police Department spoke with the victim and her friend. "While there Michael began giving the victim a tattoo on her breast. During that time he started playing with the victim's breast ... he digitally penetrated her, and then ... made her perform oral sex on him," the officer wrote in the probable cause statement.
Police stated that Easley is facing charges of sodomy on a child, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and unlawful tattooing of a minor.
He was taken to Carbon County Jail but is now free and has not yet been indicted on any charges. Colin Winchester with the Carbon County Attorney's office is asking police to gather more evidence before they move forward with charges.
