From The Star: A Kansas City man was charged Tuesday with molesting four boys over seven years. Joseph M. Braughton, 35, was charged in Clay County with five counts of statutory sodomy and one count of child molestation of children ranging from 7 to 11 years old.
He is also accused of molesting another child about four years ago after the child helped him to deliver The Kansas City Star. Braughton allegedly molested the child at his mother-in-law’s beauty salon after finishing the delivery route.
Braughton is not an employee of The Star but has been an independent contractor for eight years.
