A former Butte County foster parent is facing child molestation charges after allegations surfaced that he sexually abused children in his care.
In June of this year, the Butte County Sheriff's Office received a report that Eugene Charles Hastings Sr. had inappropriately touched a foster child, who was in his care back in 2014.
The Butte County Sheriff's Office Special Victim's Unit launched an investigation and found that other foster children had filed similar complaints against Hastings.
Hastings was interviewed by SVU detectives and arrested Friday on six counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14.
Anyone with additional information on this case or the alleged actions of Eugene Hastings is encouraged to contact the Butte County Sheriff's Office Special Victim's Unit at 530 538-7544.
