The Penbrook Pines, Fla., man was also charged with five other offenses when he was arrested on Wednesday. When the boy’s mother learned that her son and Sumlin had sexual intercourse, she took him to a local hospital for an HIV test, which produced positive preliminary results.
Because the boy is a minor, he has not been identified.
The Herald has more on this story:
Before they had sex, Sumlin said he was 21 and asked the boy, “Are you really 18 years old?” according to the police report.
From the report: “The def asked ‘Are you really 18 years old,’ and the victim replied ‘no.’ The def then asked, ‘Are you 17,’ at which point the victim replied, ‘Younger.’”
The teen later told a friend that he had met Sumlin via a mobile phone app and that he had invited the man to his home in Pembroke Pines, where they had sex without condoms.
The friend told the boy that Sumlin was HIV positive and “has a secret Facebook page wherein he posts videos of himself engaging in anal sex with males that appear to be under the age of 18,” according to the police report.
Pembroke Pines police detective Michael Silver wrote in his report that during the investigation he viewed a video of Sumlin posted on a social networking website.
“I f—ed this little boy, videotaped it and added it to the online group,” Sumlin said in the video, according to the police report. “And I don’t use condoms when I have sex and you call me sick, don’t worry about me, worry about who gave it to them.”
Sumlin is being held at the Broward County Jail on $280,000 bond. He claims that he used a condom when he had sex with the 15-year-old victim, according to police records.
Local police believe there are more victims. Please call Pembroke Pines police at 954-436-3200 if you know of more victims who may have had sexual intercourse with Sumlin.
