Boynton Beach Man Accused Of Raping Girlfriend's Daughter

A Boynton Beach man is accused of raping the daughters of the woman he was living with.

Police say 49-year-old Jackson Pridemore was arrested Thursday on charges of sexual battery on a child under the age of 12.

A woman in Kentucky allegedly called police after finding her stepdaughter's diary and reading an entry, addressed to Pridemore, stating, "You raped me for about three years."

The woman told police that her 13-year-old stepdaughter used to live with her biological mother and her mother's boyfriend in Boynton Beach.

When confronted about the diary entry, the girl admitted to having been sexually abused by Pridemore. Authorities believe Pridemore raped a girl from the time she was 7 until she was 11.

The girl told police that Pridemore would take her into his bedroom of their Boynton Beach home and rape her while her mother was at work.

During the investigation, detectives learned of two more incidents in which Pridemore was alleged to have sexually abused other girls.

In a Facebook post, Boynton Beach police say "He had been accused of raping other children in the past in the City of Boynton Beach and probable cause was established for his arrest in the sexual battery of a child in 2013."

Police believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information to call detectives at 561-732-8116.
