On Friday, July 8, 2022, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Major Case Unit (MCU) completed an investigation into Child Sexual Abuse allegations involving multiple juvenile victims. Two subjects, identified as 20-year-old Ja’ Vere Lumpkins and 18-year-old Marcian Thompson Jr. were arrested on multiple counts of Capital Sexual Battery on a Person Under 12, Lewd or Lascivious Molestation on a Person Under 12 and Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition by a Person Under 18.
Warrants were signed for their arrests by the Honorable Judge Distler on Friday. FCSO MCU Detectives first made contact with Lumpkins’ at his B-Section residence where he was arrested without incident. He is facing charges for two counts of Capital Sexual Battery on a Person Under 12 and one count of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation of a Person Under 12 with additional charges pending. He is being held at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility on no bond.
Shortly after Lumpkins’ arrest, Detectives responded to Thompson’s residence in Orlando with the assistance of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) where he was arrested without incident. He is facing charges for one count of Capital Sexual Battery on a Person Under 12, two counts of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation of a Person Under 12 and two counts of Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition by a Person Under 18. He was transported to the Orange County Jail and will be extradited to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility in Bunnell and held on no bond.
“I commend our Major Case Unit for solving a difficult case and getting these perverted dirtbags off the streets,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Anyone who takes away a child’s innocence away deserves to stay behind bars forever. I hope these arrests allow some closure to the victims and their families and they are able to get the help they need. And to anyone who thinks they’ll get away with preying on our children, here’s the reminder that we will not stop until you’re arrested and unable to hurt another child ever again! I would also like to thank the Orange County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance.”

I wish they would bring back old school punishment. They two dirt bags need to be brought behind the wood shed and taught a lesson they would never forget. I also think the family members of the victims are the ones to hand down the punishment. Imo it would serve two major purposes. One it would give the families some piece of mind and justice. Not like the justice system that is in place where these aholes will be back on the streets in no time with a small punishment. And two it may straighten their butts out where they change their lives so they don’t do something stupid again and next time end up in jail for life and the American tax payer has to pay their room and board for the rest of their lives.
