Quentin is a 36 year old male who was referred for therapy by the courts after he was charged with harassing a minor. Quentin owns an ice cream route, and was accused of harassing a 14 year old girl who frequented the ice cream truck after school, allegedly contacting her on social media, texting her, and following her home one afternoon. Quentin has a reputation for being a “creeper” with the middle school students who come to his ice cream truck.
Quentin denies ever physically touching any of the children, but admits to having sexual thoughts about several of them, masturbating while thinking about some of the 12 and 13 year olds, and becoming sexually aroused at the job when he smells the perfume worn by some of them.
