Stepfather charged with alleged molestation of stepdaughter; claims of watching pornography and sex on "Daddy Daughter" days

Yesterday, Mario D. Alexander was arraigned on 11 counts, all with the special allegation that the offenses involved more than one victim.

Deputy District Attorney Stacey Eads is prosecuting the case. Public Defender Meagan O'Connell is representing Alexander.

Count 1 to 3 are Oral Copulation/Sexual Penetration with a child 10 years old or younger; Jane Doe #2. Counts 4-8 Lewd Act Upon A Child  14 years or younger; Jane Doe #2. Counts 9-11 Lewd Act Upon A Child 14 years or younger; Jane Doe #1.

One alleged victim is the daughter of Alexander's ex-wife's friends, the other alleged victim is Alexander's step-daughter, biological child of his (now ex) wife at that time. "Daddy Daughter" days are when some of the alleged acts took place between Alexander and his step daughter. The details the children gave in the CAST interviews included descriptions of the step daugther saying "she watched movies where girls put their mouth on boys parts" and "rubbing in the middle, she said, you know how you pee." One alleged victim acted out giving a hand job on a soda bottle.

The alleged victims did not testify at the preliminary hearing so the above was through testimony of witnesses.

A preliminary hearing  took place on December 16 starting 1:30 p.m.for Alexander in Courtroom 1. Listed below are the 9 counts for the preliminary hearing.

No other media was present. I wanted to wait until arraignment to post details about the preliminary hearing to see if the charges were different.

(I will have posts on the preliminary hearing up later, definitely by the weekend).

HCSO Deputy Eric Morris was the People's first witness. HCSO Sgt. Greg Musson was the People's second witness and the lead investigator in this case.

It did not conclude and will continue at 9:30 on Monday morning with the testimony of Ms. Alexander, the third witness and then Deputy Greg Musson being questioned on redirect.

Deputy District Attorney Stacey Eads is prosecuting the case. Public Defender has been appointed for Alexander.

Ms. Eads indicated to Judge John Feeney that she would be gone for two weeks and a colleague would sub in.

Charges are: Counts 1 and 2 are Oral copulation/Penetration with child under age of 10; Counts 3 -9, seven counts of Lewd or lascivious act with child under 14 years.

Since arraignment, the preliminary hearing has been continued four times.

Most recently by the District Attorney, twice before by the defense, first time by stipulation.

Alexander's mother, accompanied by another woman attended only part of the preliminary earlier in the day. On Friday, the preliminary hearing started at 9:45 and continued after lunch until the end of the day.
