2UrbanGirls has received a copy of an incident report that led to multiple charges of oral copulation against a minor being filed against a long-time employee of the Compton Unified School District.
The victim walked into the Compton Sheriff Station in February of this year, to report what allegedly happened to him between January 2003 through December 2005 while attending Compton High School at the age of 14 years old.
The victim stated he signed up for computer class which was held at the Compton Unified District office after school. The victim later describes the class as a paid job that was offered to high school students who attended Centennial, Compton, and Dominguez and were held three days a week at the district offices.
When the victim told the person running the program, later identified as Rodney Andrews, that he had transportation issues, Andrews volunteered to pick him up to bring him to the classes. The victims parents agreed, and it was approved by Andrews supervisor Dr. Sewell.
The victim states “things were normal” until Andrews needed to stop at his home to get “supplies”. This became a pattern of Andrews stopping at his home prior to going to the district offices.
“Andrews began to offer food and drinks during these stops” the victim told Sheriff deputies.
Around March 2003, Andrews offered the victim food and drinks to “relax” where Andrews stated he didn’t want to go to the class. The victim alleges at this point he thought he was going to be driven home, and instead Andrews asked him “are you hard”? He then alleges he was pushed on the bed, Andrews pulled his zipper pants down, and removed his penis from his pants. He alleges at this point Andrews began performing oral sex on him but the victim was unable to get an erection. On some occasions, the victim alleges Andrews would masturbate and ejaculate in front of him.
At this point the victim stopped going to the computer program and was scared to tell his parents. The victim was contacted by the district as to why he stopped attending, and persuaded him to return. When he asked Andrews to “stop” the victim alleges Andrews began to “blackmail” him and threatened to commit suicide.
In December 2005 the victim stopped attending the program.
The deputies investigation included the victim providing a photograph of Andrews and described he drove a Toyota Tacoma. Deputies used the DMV database to match his photograph and confirm his home address provided by the victim. The victim was also able to draw a diagram of Andrews home and bedroom.
Deputies noted Andrews volunteers with various youth groups: Compton Second Chance Youth Academy, Turning Point of Compton, Witness to Mass Incarceration, and the National LGBT Task Force.
When the victim was in 10th grade, the district offered high school students the opportunity to design a webpage for the district. Realizing he initially met Andrews when he was in middle school, when he ran into Andrews, he found out Andrews was responsible for hiring the student to design the webpage. Andrews then hired him on the spot.
The victim alleges Andrews would provide him with expensive gifts. A pair of Nike Air Jordans and money.
The victim describes eight separate incidents, in detail, of the alleged abuse. At one point Andrews invited a friend for a threesome who the victim called “Brenda” to join them. The victim described the woman refusing to join in and Andrews telling him he and “Brenda” had a falling out over money and writing of bad checks in Andrews name. The deputies were able to corroborate the story with a police report involving forgery between Andrews and “Brenda” in 2006.
The victim provided deputies with screenshots of messages sent through AOL instant messenger which he alleges contains threatening messages believed to be from Andrews. The dates of the messages are from February 2021, a week after the victim went to deputies with his allegations. The victim wanted a clean start since starting his own family.
Deputies then setup a “pre-text” phone call between Andrews and the victim. When asked “why him” Andrews called him “welcoming”, and repeatedly apologized to him.
After his April 27 arrest, and being read his Miranda Rights, Andrews agreed to answer questions without an attorney present and asked why he was arrested and was told it was for “sex crimes with a minor” to which he responded “which minor”.
Deputies showed Andrews a picture of his victim and he stated he didn’t know who he was. Deputies intercepted a jail call between Andrews and his boyfriend where Andrews said he believed the arrest was about the victim in question.
Andrews told deputies he “didn’t remember” picking up the victim from Compton High School to take him to work at the district, denied getting him the job, and denied owning a Toyota truck. DMV registration records found a Toyota registered to Andrews.
After deputies told Andrews they listened to the call between him and his alleged victim and as “his eyes widened” he was told it was important to tell the truth.
Andrews said, “I didn’t want this to happen, they met at an after-school program, and admitted to having consensual oral sex 2-3x”. Deputies asked Andrews if they should share anything with his victim, and he stated “tell him I love him”.
Andrews then asked for an attorney, and deputies have located a witness.
