Eau Claire man faces sexual assault charges after touching girl during a sleepover

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Charges of child sexual assault were filed Tuesday against a rural Eau Claire man accused of assaulting his step-daughter's friend during a sleep-over. The girl told investigators she was sleeping in the same room with her friend and the girl's sister.

Robert Charbonneau went into to the room and tucked her in. She said he did that three times during the night, touching her inappropriately.

Charbonneau told detectives he tucked the girl in out of habit, even though she's not his child. When asked why, he replied his house gets cold. Detectives reminded him this happened in July. 

Charbonneau later conceded his urges got the best of him, and that he made a conscious decision to do what he did. He also talked about trying to stop looking at porn, saying if he didn't his wife would divorce him.
