Anthony Thompson is in a Lexington jail, accused of raping the 15-year-old daughter of his his live-in girlfriend.

The mother of the victim says Thompson was arrested Monday night, one day after her daughter told her what Thompson did to her.

She says Thompson came home from work with wine coolers and a 6 pack of beer and wanted to watch a scary movie, something the mother of the victim says she didn't want to watch.

When the mother went to bed, she says the 15-year-old and 39-year- old Thompson drank alcohol and her daughter was also given painkillers to the point that she was knocked unconscious.

Then, she alleges Thompson raped her daughter in her own bed. She says he apologized the next morning.

The mother wanted the story told so that she can show Thompson does not have the power in this situation and wants others to feel that they too can come forward.

Thompson is being held on $10,000 bond and is due in court later this month.

    at age 15, they are still children and are too trusting to an adult, they dont think of a situation of being dangerous..any man over the age of 18 has heard of statutory rape and knows the consequences...they need to put him away and register him as a sex offender..the apoligy the next morning proves that he knew it was wrong and he was trying to clear his own consicious..she is a child and she will live with that for the rest of her life...my prayers go out to her...

    I have always taught my girls If ANYONE mistreated them in that way , come and tell me or another grown up! I'm glad that the 15 yr. old told her mother if she had not, it could keep going on until who knows, this man needs to be horse whipped until his back had no hide left!!! So many men get away with rape now days and the thing about it , they go on like nothing ever happened until his next victim. I know first hand what it can do to you , mentally and physically, it lives with you for the rest of your life!!!

    I THINK IT IS DISGUSTING WHEN A 35 YEAR OLD MAN WOULD EVEN CONSIDER HAVING SEX WITH A LITTLE GIRL. I AM GLAD THAT THE MOTHER HAD THIS MAN PUT IN JAIL. IN LOVE WITH HIM OR NOT IT IS GOOD THAT SHE CHOSE HER DAUGHTER OVER THAT PEDIPHILE. THESE DAY'S THAT IS ALMOST UNHEARD OF. SO KUDO'S TO THE MOM FOR GETTING HER STORY OUT. I ALSO THINK THAT HE SHOULD GET EVERYTHING THAT HE DESERVES. YOU JUST DON'T GIVE DRUGS AND ALCOHOL TO A MINOR AND THEN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM.

    In Kentucky, 15 year olds do not have the legal capacity to consent to sex, regardles of how old they look. I know, I know. Girls that age LOOK a lot older these days. If parents don't regulate their daughters' wardrobe, then who will? Because teenagers' brains are not fully developed and they cannot appreciate the consequences of their actions, laws are put in place to "protect" them. Am I the only one old enough to remember the term "jail bait?" I bet this morning Mom's boyfriend knows what it means! I am glad she is doing what she can to hopefully protect other potential future victims. Too bad it's too late for her daughter. Unfortuntately, this lesson will be ignored by too many others who should learn from it instead of repeating it.

    I am glad this was reported, and I hope it will make mothers more aware of being careful about who they trust around their children. As for him, he is a lowlife and I hope he rots in jail for what he has done to that girl.

    Most of you all are really rude. How should this be blamed on the mother? Im sure that she really trusted him or would have never moved him in. People these days can really hide their problems and im sure he had her mother convinced that he was a good man. I dont think the daughter should have been drinking either but you cant say just because she was drinking that it was her fault that it happened. She is just a child who probably thought of him as someone she could trust as well. He is the adult he should have known better all the way around. Why would you let a 15 year old drink and give her pills. He knew what he was doing he apparently had this one planned. I think that the mother totally did the right thing by letting everyone know that he really is scum of the earth. And i hope that he rots in jail like he should. I just hope this doesnt make the rest of this little girls like a living hell.

    Everyone here needs a lesson...the mother had a live in boyfriend of three years who I assume she thought was going to be a father figure to her daughter...the mother and this man could have been married..not just "living together". The mother assumed as we all would that our children are "safe" with the so called "step-parents". In this case something went wrong and I am happy she turned this disgusting man in..and hope she is done with him. But in all truth you have to see the whole story...(edited) She did not deserve to be raped of course...but we need to look at the whole social circle and the living conditions and try to change something now.
