Chad Hullfish told Boynton Beach Police detectives that he molested his 8-year-old niece and that he may have also had illegal contact with his girlfriend's 4-year-old daughter, according to a probable cause affidavit released today. In that document, Hullfish blames the incidents on the strain of having to change his masturbation rituals since hosting company in his home.
Detectives interviewed Hullfish yesterday, after a father brought in his 8-year-old daughter last week to report allegations that her "Uncle Chad" had performed oral sex on her. Quotes from what sounds like a bizarre interview with Hullfish after the jump.
In the interview,
Chad Hullfish admitted to "licking" the 8-year-old female's vagina on at least one occasion that he could remember and said it might have happened at least on other time. Hullfish explained that he has had a longtime daily masturbation ritual and when he is unable to masturbate due to company in the house, he can't control his urges and that's why this occurred.
Not an explanation that's going to get him very far at trial. Back to the affidavit:
During this same interview, he also said that this complaint struck him as "odd" because his new girlfriend's daughter (4 years old) also accused him of licking her vagina and he thought that was coincidental until now.
The names of the victims have been withheld. Detectives are investigating the possibility that the 4-year-old is also a victim.
