Charges Pile Up For Former Skate Shop Owner

by The Editors on July 24, 2009

Joseph CThings are not getting better for Joseph Edmund Chiquet, 34, the former owner of The Yard skateboard shop in Bradenton, Florida.

Already in jail on charges of having sex with a 15-year-old girl, Chiquet has now been arrested on charges of “possessing and promoting child pornography,” according to a story in the Bradenton Herald.

Detectives Thursday served Chiquet with more charges at the Manatee County jail after investigators found nine sexually explicit pictures of the victim on his computer. Also, Bradenton police detectives also arrested Chiquet on a charge of lewd and lascivious battery after the victim said he had sex with her in his skate shop, in the 3000 block of Manatee Avenue West.

There are so many lessons to be learned here. We’ll leave it at that.
