Bladenboro Man Charged with Child Sex Offenses

Multiple felony charges have been filed against a Bladenboro area man who allegedly committed sex acts on a female juvenile.

John Edward Bungert Jr., 46, is being held under $100,000 bond in the Bladen County Detention Center, according to a press release. Bungert was arrested on three counts of indecent liberties with a child, two counts statutory sex offense with a child under 15, two counts of sex acts by a substitute parent, and three counts of crime against nature.

The Bladen Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that authorities were contacted Jan. 25 when the child reported the alleged activity. Working with Carolyn’s Kaleidoscope Child Advocacy Center, investigators conducted a forensic interview with the child. The interview led them to take out warrants against Bungert.
