Investigators say Kevin Carothers, who is a registered sex offender, began fondling his step-daughter in 2009. The sexual assaults turned into rape in October when both Kevin Carothers (35) and Theresa Carothers (36) and Kevin Carothers, have been jailed after they allegedly raped Theresa Carothers’ underage daughter repeatedly over two years.
According to police, Theresa Carothers was arrested Wednesday in Lakewood after she sexually assaulted her own daughter- along with her husband, Keven Carothers, the victim’s step-father. He was taken into custody last week.
Kevin Carothers continued to rape the girl on a regular basis, but only when other family members were not in the house. Kevin and Theresa Carothers lived with Kevin’s parents when the alleged assaults began.
In December of 2009 Theresa Carothers joined in on the sexual assaults and sexually assaulted the victim on her own.Both parents photographed themselves sexually assaulting the girl and then text messaged each other the photographs. The couple also exchanged text messages that discussed what they would do next to her.
The alleged sexual assaults continued until October of 2011. A witness who knows the family corroborated the victim’s statements and told police that Kevin had inappropriately touched her too.
Kevin Carothers was booked into the Denver Detention Center and charged with sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust and aggravated incest. His bond has been set at $100,000.
Theresa Carothers was booked into the Jefferson County Jail and will face similar charges. Bond has not yet been set in her case.
