Hunter Atkins – Pedophile, Attempted Sexual Assault of Kid

Hunter Atkins, a sports reporter, was arrested in 2020 for attempted sexual assault of child. 

Note that it wasn’t the first time the authorities had arrested Hunter Atkins, the ex-Chronicle reporter. Keep in mind that at the time of arrest, he was 31. 

Police had arrested him in 2019 for harboring a runaway. 

This time, the authorities arrested him for attempted sexual assault of a child and online solicitation. 

The Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office had released the necessary info on this horrible case.

Officials said that investigations led to the new charges. They arrested him near the 100 block of Chelsea Boulevard in Houston’s Museum District. 

Investigators said Hunter Atkins had started chatting with a 15 year old girl on Instagram in December 2019. 

They located her in his condo after her mother filed a  runaway report. 

Investigators believe that the 15 year old girl was with Hunter Atkins on at least 3 occasions. The Constable added that a man twice the age of the young girl had manipulated her. Furthermore, he said, “Such predators will not be tolerated.”

However, the charges against Hunter Atkins had to be dropped because the girl did not testify before the grand jury. 

The child’s mother had found several inappropriate photos and sexual texts on her phone. Also, she had found her location in the Museum District and contacted the police. 

The grand jury dismissed the case citing there was insufficient evidence for an indictment.

People on social media responded with disgust when they received the news. However, a few people came forward to share their personal interactions with Hunter Atkins.

Another user responded by pointing out that she had a similar experience. In her experience, Hunter Atkins had sent a few unwanted crude photos as well. 

Where is Hunter Atkins Now?

Currently, Hunter Atkins claims to be a freelance news reporter. He used to work at The Houston Chronicle as an enterprise sports reporter. 

However, he had to leave the company during the legal troubles he faced for pedophilia. 

Moreover, he has contributed to Forbes, Rolling Stone, National Geographic, The New York Times and other publications. 

Hunter Atkins has attended the Medill School of Journalism of Northwestern University. 

Conclusion

All the evidence suggests that Hunter Atkins might be a pedophile. That should be reason enough for people to avoid dealing with him. 

The only reason he avoided indictment was the lack of evidence. Note that it’s quite common for molesters and pedophiles to get away with their heinous crimes through lack of evidence. 

Sam Mustafa Charleston has faced charges of rape and assault multiple times but avoided jail in every time. 

Furthermore, Hunter Atkins had sent sexual messages to a 15 year old girl. 

Due to these reasons, it would be best for you to avoid dealing with him.

    Not only am I blown away that I have never heard of this. I am astonished that he got away with it for as long as he did.

    Hunter Atkins was caught sending sexual messages to a 15-year-old girl. He was meeting with her secretly. Her mother found those sexual messages and contacted the police fearing for her safety. I mean the entire ordeal is pretty pathetic.

    Then you have people defending because the court didn’t find him guilty. That don’t change the fact that Hunter was caught sexting with a minor. The young girl refused to testify against him (for unknown reasons) so the court was unable to do anything.

    That doesn’t mean he is innocent either.

    I can’t believe we have people defending pedophiles now.

    - CONS: arrested for sexting with a minor, didn't go to jail because the minor couldn't testify

  3. The Constitution places limits on the government to protect people from government abuse. What if there were statements and innuendos that Andre was a robber who committed horrific acts of violence? And what if those accusations got published on some random internet sites? Should you be locked up and off the streets because of what those sites say about you?

    What “them” can’t you trust? You can trust our justice system to not incarcerate you unless you have been tried and found guilty in a court of law. And you can (should be able to) trust that you won’t be tried unless you have been arrested (with probable cause), advised of the charge, and read your rights including your right to an attorney.

    The Constitution has a “Due Process” clause in both the 5th and 14th Amendments. That clause guarantees that “no person” can be denied due process of the law, which means everyone is entitled to the usual steps in the justice process. Those include arrest, charge, rights, attorney, trial, testimony, verdict, and if and only if found guilty, sentence. Otherwise, presumption of innocence until found guilty in a court of law. The Internet is not a court of law.

    This case just makes me sad. How can we let deranged pervs like hunter roam our streets so openly? I don’t care if he was a sports reporter or a doctor. A monster will always remain a monster.

    It is a proper case of grooming. The girl didn’t get testify against him because she didn’t think he did anything wrong imo.

    Men like Hunter Atkins are very manipulative. Children are very easy to manipulate too. There is only our justice system to blame.

    This was so infuriating to read. He belongs in jail.

    • We can’t really say “he belongs in jail”, because he has not been tried and found guilty in a court of law, as is required by our Constitution.

    I matched with Hunter Atkins on a dating app. I remember both the Houston new reports of his arrest and the sexual harassment I experienced. I don’t know what truly happened, but based on my experience the dismissed allegations aren’t hard to believe.

    Why did they let him go? He clearly groomed that young girl. At the very least, he had some sexual conversations with a literal 15 year old.

    Hunter seems like a manipulative pedo.

    • Comment re due process:

    • Yup, they should not have let him go. There is no excuse for it.

      But I have already lost faith in our justice system.

      There are too many things wrong with it. If they can’t keep a dangerous pedo out of the streets then I can’t trust them with anything 🤷🏿‍♂️
