PRO 021313 3A.inddSheriff Brian Hawthorne reported today that on 19 December, 2012 the Sheriff’s Office received information about an alleged Aggravated Sexual Assault on a Juvenile involving multiple suspects within Chambers and Harris County.

Based on this information which was given by the victim’s outcry, the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division was able to determine the incidents would not be described as a continuing episode with multiple suspects but separate incidents at different locations, dates and suspects.

As a result of the investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division two adults, a mother and son were charged. A warrant was issued for Kendall Warren Mahar, W/M 17 for Aggravated Sexual Assault on a Juvenile (Felony) with a $10,000 bond, and Carla Immel Mahar, W/F 44 was charged with Abandon/Endangering a Child (Felony), $10,000 bond and both from the Beach City area in Chambers County.

In addition three Juvenile suspects have been charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault. Their cases are currently under review by the Chambers County Attorney’s Office.

On February 6, 2013 both adult suspects, Kendall Mahar and his mother, Carla Mahar surrendered to the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office and are currently jailed awaiting arraignments
