Buckley councilman charged with child rape
Longtime Buckley City Councilman Randy Reed is staring at two charges stemming from allegations of inappropriate sexual contact with a young girl.
The Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office charged Reed, 54, with first-degree child rape and first-degree child molestation. Charging papers allege Reed inappropriately touched a 7-year-old. He was charged Thursday and an arraignment has been scheduled for Sept. 29 in Pierce County Superior Court.
Charging papers allege Reed touched the girl and exposed himself to her; it also is alleged he had the girl touch him.
The girl is not named, but it is noted she is the daughter of a woman Reed knows. Court documents indicate Reed and the girl had a close relationship.
The incident apparently came to light when the girl made the allegations known to her mother, who notified the Buckley Police Department.
