A Pierce County man is accused of sexually assaulting three of his teenage daughter’s friends during sleepovers at his home.
Prosecutors have charged Jason Wilks, 36, with three counts of child rape, three counts of child molestation, two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance to a person under 18 and three counts of furnishing liquor to a minor.
He is to be arraigned Dec. 23.
According to charging papers, a friend of Wilks’ 15-year-old daughter told a counselor this fall that he’d given the girls hard alcohol and she fell asleep watching a movie. She awoke to Wilks biting her ear and rubbing her with her pants pushed down.

The girl later showed detectives text messages from Wilks in which he said he wished she was 18.
Two other girls then came forward and said he had sexually assaulted them.
“Many juveniles stayed the night as the defendant provided alcohol and marijuana,” according to court records.
One girl said she woke up to Wilks touching her but she was too scared to tell him she was uncomfortable. After the girl told her family and Wilks’ family what had happened, he later told the girl he thought she was his wife.
The other girl told detectives he began abusing her in the eighth grade and bribed her with pot.
All the incidents are alleged to have taken place between June 2012 and October 2014.
