CONYERS -- A teenager accused of sexual molestation of a 9-year-old girl last fall was transferred from a youth development center to the Rockdale County Jail last week on his 17th birthday.
Demari Devinc Mussington, of 1363 Fall River Drive, will be tried as an adult in Rockdale County Superior Court, according to Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Investigator Michael Camp. Mussington was charged in October after he allegedly attempted to have sex with the girl, who was a visitor in his home. Mussington was 16, a juvenile, when the crime was allegedly committed, and he was initially taken to Gwinnett Youth Development Center.
Investigators were called to Rockdale Medical Center on Oct. 8 after the girl was brought to the emergency room by her mother. The girl told investigators that she was asleep when a male she knew came into the bedroom with a jacket wrapped around his head, picked her up and carried her into the bathroom.
The girl told authorities that the suspect sexually assaulted her in the bathroom and that she tried to fight back but he was too strong. At one point the victim said Mussington made a loud noise by bumping into the toilet tank. The suspect jumped into the shower to hide, according to the victim, and his mother came into the room and discovered what had happened.
The suspect's mother called her husband to come home, according to the report, and he notified the victim's mother. The child's mother took her to Rockdale Medical Center, and the Sheriff's Office was notified by personnel in the emergency room.
The victim told an investigator that similar assaults by the suspect had been going on for months. She said that the suspect had always kept his face covered during the assaults.
