Former school security guard convicted of sexual assault and abuse of a child for creating child pornography

Namar Ikeam Plummer

Media, Pa – Today Delaware County District Attorney Katayoun M. Copeland announced the conviction of Namar Ikeam Plummer, 28, of the unit block of Plaza Street in Marcus Hook, who was found guilty of the sexual assault and sexual abuse of a child. Plummer created child pornography by filming a sex act between himself and a minor victim that occurred in July 2017 in Marcus Hook Borough, which was then shared on social media.

Namar Ikeam Plummer was convicted following a two-day jury trial before Delaware County Court of Common Pleas Judge Richard M. Cappelli. He was found guilty of sexual assault (a felony of the second degree) and the sexual abuse of a child for creating child pornography (a felony of the first degree). The defendant’s bail was revoked and he was remanded to the George W. Hill Correctional Facility, as he awaits sentencing on October 23, 2018. Plummer faces a maximum of 30 years in state prison and lifetime Megan’s Law registration.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Danielle Gallaher of the District Attorney’s Special Victims’ Unit, and the investigation was led by Detective Douglas Staffelbach of the Marcus Hook Borough Police Department, with assistance from Delaware County Criminal Investigation Division (CID) Sergeants Robin Clark and Kenneth Bellis and Detective Mark Bucci. For the case, victim assistance and support were provided by Lauren Ciatteo, Counselor Advocate for Delaware County Women Against Rape.

On August 24, 2017, police launched an investigation into a video recording that appeared on social media showing a sexual act involving an adult male and a minor that took place in Marcus Hook Borough. Through the course of the investigation, it was determined that Namar Ikeam Plummer had nonconsensual sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old victim in his home in Marcus Hook, which he recorded by video. The video was then shared on social media by an unknown individual in August 2017.

According to the victim, in July of 2017, she was sexually assaulted by Namar Ikeam Plummer at his residence in Marcus Hook Borough. The victim stated she knew Plummer as "Mar” from Chester High School where he was a security guard. According to the victim, Plummer sexually assaulted her and threatened her with a gun if she did not comply. The victim only complied because she feared for her safety and her family’s safety.

“There is no act more horrific and appalling than the sexual abuse of an innocent child by someone in a position of trust,” said District Attorney Katayoun M. Copeland. “Mr. Plummer used his position of trust to prey on a child he was supposed to protect, and caused her even further emotional damage by video recording the sexual assault. The victim demonstrated incredible courage by coming forward and providing detailed testimony, ensuring that the defendant will be held accountable for his actions. I would like to commend Assistant District Attorney Danielle Gallaher for bringing this difficult case to justice and victim advocate Lauren Ciatteo of Delaware County Women Against Rape. I would also like to commend Detective Douglas Staffelbach of the Marcus Hook Borough Police Department and CID Sgt. Robin Clark, Sgt. Kenneth Bellis, and Detective Mark Bucci of the Child Abuse Unit, for their swift and thorough investigation into this case to ensure this dangerous predator is not able to cause any more harm to the victim and the surrounding community.”
