Boy does Robert Wayne Cates look pissed (in the booking photo which I no longer have). It’s not him that should be pissed but anytime a pedophile is arrested I guess they aren’t too happy. Gwinnett County Police arrested the 57-year-old Lawrenceville man this Wednesday and he is currently housed in the Gwinnett County Jail without bond on multiple charges of Sexual Battery, Aggravated Sexual Battery and Child Molestation.
Cates, who has been working as a night janitor at Parkview High School since 2008 (he’s been with Gwinnett County Schools since 1987) has been allegedly molesting his two nieces who are now teenagers since 1999. Doing the math that means they were somewhere between 3 and 7 when he started having sex with the two sisters. Ugh.
Law enforcement started investigating the claims back in April after the girls told police they had been molested by their uncle when they would spend the night at Cate’s house on the weekend.
