Huffmaster charged with multiple counts of rape

A Sharp County man, 59-year-old Jack Huffmaster Jr., is behind bars and facing multiple charges including seven counts of rape following the serving of a warrant for arrest Nov. 9. 

The charges stem from a report in January of 2022 when authorities were called to a medical treatment facility for a report of a juvenile in crisis.

While at the medical facility, the victim told authorities she had been the victim of rape and had also been molested by Huffmaster.  

The victim shared details with authorities regarding multiple incidents and relayed a long history of abuse. 

When asked for more details, the victim stated the abuse had been ongoing and provided tentative dates of prior abuse incidents. 

During the course of the investigation, additional victims were discovered spanning more than a decade. 

It was noted in the affidavit that “great lengths were undertaken to keep the victims discredited and stymie the efforts of law enforcement to uncover the truth of what had been taking place in the offenders home.” 

Huffmaster has been charged with seven counts of rape, a class Y felony; six counts of sexual assault in the second degree, a class B felony and three counts of domestic battery in the third degree, a class A misdemeanor.
