Man guilty of molesting daughter of benefactors

ADRIAN -- A California man who was accused of molesting a 6-year-old Raisin Township girl pleaded guilty yesterday in Lenawee County Circuit Court to assault with intent to commit sexual penetration.

Rockland Blake, Jr., 24, met the girl's parents over the Internet and convinced the couple to drive to El Cajon, Calif., to pick him up. The family invited him into their home and offered to help him get a fresh start, Michigan State Police investigators said.

After five days of living with the family, Blake exposed himself to the girl on April 16 and forced her to touch him.

Judge Timothy Pickard will dismiss a charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under the age of 13 when Blake is sentenced June 7.
