A 17-year-old took immediate action when the teen saw a sex offender committing a violent assault on a Kentucky resident, who was on the receiving end of a heinous crime at the hands of the wood saw wielding creep. However, their life was saved when the teen gave the pervert what he had coming.
Around 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning, Ohio County’s dispatch received a 911 call. When the police arrived at the scene in the town of Hartford, they found one man dead in the front yard. After discussing the details of what happened, a father and his son told police that the dead man had attacked the teen’s father with a wood saw. While he was beating the older man, his son retrieved a gun and was able to shoot the thug a few times and kill him.
The attacker was 41-year-old Kevin S. Marrett, a known sex offender with a documented criminal history. The police are still investigating this incident, and the names of the father and his son have yet to be released. According to the Kentucky State Police, Marrett was a registered sexual predator, who was on a supervised release after serving his time for the sexual assault of a 4-year-old child.
Unfortunately, the Kentucky State Police aren’t sure whether the 17-year-old will be charged yet.
Marrett obviously is a sick and twisted person. His assault of a 4-year-old is a heinous crime to begin with, but karma was able to kick him in the nuts. He chose the wrong house and the wrong man to attack. Thanks to the quick thinking and actions of his son, one father is still alive, and he will be able to see his son continue to grow up.
Best wishes for this family, and hopefully, the police do the right thing here and refuse to press charges against the boy. His actions most likely saved the life of his father, and that is noble and should not be punished. He also saved future victims from running into this creep. Justice was served.
