Records: Dracut man used games to molest boy, 9

Lowell Sun

LAWRENCE Accused child molester Kevin F. Curlew told investigators of a twisted bet, bizarre warnings, a desire to be caught, as well as threats from his victim, according to court records.

The Dracut man, who is accused of sexually abusing a 9-year-old boy, allegedly said the abuse began in Curlew's home after the two spent a day together at the Lowell Folk Festival last July.

Curlew allegedly made the boy do the "wiggle dance" dropping his pants and wiggling to make his genitalia move after he lost three video games to Curlew.

Curlew told the boy he shouldn't have made the bet if he didn't want to follow through, and offered "to be fair" to take his own pants down, according to Lawrence District Court records.

The abuse continued at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Hill Street in Methuen on the second Tuesdays of September, October and November, while the boy's mother was at church meetings, the records state.
