Charlestown man charged with incest, child molesting

Family gives accounts of abuse in home

JEFFERSONVILLE — Following claims that he had forced a 13-year-old relative to perform a sex act, a Charlestown man is being held at the Clark County jail under a $100,000 cash-only bond.

A father of four, Frank Allen Glover II, 50, Tunnel Mill Road, was charged Tuesday with three class A felony counts of child molesting and one count class B felony incest.

Glover’s arrest stems from a probable cause affidavit prepared by a Clark County Sheriff’s investigator. The affidavit includes interviews with three sisters, each teenagers, and Glover’s wife, all of whom share a home with Glover.

Glover’s four felony charges are the result of claims of abuse against one of the children. Each of the children, however, reported that Glover ruled the home in a brutal, bizarre and sexual-charged fashion.

The children and his wife claim Glover forced the family, including a boy, to live as nudists, despite everyone, excluding Glover, being uncomfortable walking around unclothed. According to the affidavit, Glover and his wife would argue in the home about his pornography habits.

One of the girls told the investigator during an interview that, “[Glover] makes everything sexual about women.”

The sisters and wife claim he is also harshly authoritative in the home.

When the investigator asked his wife why she didn’t tell her husband to stop the nudist activity, “Mrs. Glover said that is something she could never have done. Her husband is the one who is the head of the household.”

According to the affidavit, Glover sexually assaulted one of the girls, who turned 18 years old this month, on several occasions when she was between the ages of 13 and 14. The girl claims he would call her to the home’s basement and have her sit on his lap, at which time he would use his hand to touch her private area, as well as making her perform sex acts.

According to the report, the girl had once told a friend of the abuse and the friend’s mother had reported the claims. When authorities came to the home, the child denied the abuse from Glover. She claimed, at the time, that her friend had misunderstood her use of the word “hating” as “raping.”

Glover was taken into custody Tuesday after an initial hearing in Clark County Circuit Court No. 4  with his private attorney Stan Faith.

A not guilty plea was entered.
