Kingston man faces sex charges involving a child

A 37-year-old Kingston man has been arrested by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and charged with suspicion of first-degree rape of a child and child molestation.

Cory Alan Slater turned himself in May 27 and is facing $500,000 bail.

Court papers say:

Slater had been previously interviewed as part of the sheriff’s investigation into accusations made by a 10-year-old victim. Slater reportedly referenced a case two years ago and suggested investigators contact Poulsbo City Attorney Alexis Foster.

Foster looked up the case, which occurred in August of 2019, when Slater underwent court-ordered psychosexual evaluation as he was facing charges of communication with a minor for immoral purposes. During that evaluation, Slater reportedly admitted to sexually assaulting the victim, who was 8 at the time.

Slater, a registered sex offender, allegedly said he knew the interaction was wrong but allowed it to continue, and even alleged that the victim’s mother was willfully ignorant of the situation. Slater also stated that the minor viewed the interactions as a game. Slater stated that he had known the victim’s mother for years and had met her while picking up their children from school.

Slater had been spending time at the victim’s house on a 40-acre property with multiple dwellings on it in Kingston.

The victim describes several occasions in which Slater allegedly raped her and on each occasion she had told her mother, who then told Slater to leave but did not contact police.
