BROCKTON – A Weymouth man working as a magician has been arraigned on charges that he allegedly indecently assaulted three juvenile victims who attended magic classes, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.
David Hussey (DOB: 04/28/66) of Weymouth, was arrested at approximately 11 am at his Weymouth home today by State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Hingham District Court on two counts of Indecent Assault and Battery on a Person over 14 and one count of Indecent Assault and Battery on a Person Under the Age of 14. The Commonwealth requested Hussey be held on $10,000 bail with the conditions that he stay away and have no contact with the victims, and stay away from anyone under 18. Judge John Stapleton ordered Hussey held on $2,000 cash bail with the conditions but allowed supervised conduct with people under 18.
The charges follow a four-month investigation by State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office after three male victims reported that they had been indecently assaulted by Hussey. The three male victims alleged that Hussey, who is employed as a magician and uses the stage name “David Oliver,” sexually assaulted them while a member of the Society of Young Magicians.
The three victims, who attended magic classes that were led by Hussey, reported incidents that were unrelated and separate from one another. Each reported similar assaults in which Hussey indecently touched the victims.
The case remains under investigation by State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office. Anyone with information should contact State Police at 508-894-2600.
