Dad Who Raped 3-Year-Old Daughter Plans to Blame Her Mom

Horrifying 149

I guess none of us should be surprised that a monster who pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping his 3-year-old daughter would accept a plea bargain in which he testifies against his wife for acting as an accomplice in the rape. But excuse me if I'm just a little horrified that the Michigan dad who remains nameless would even be offered a plea deal. 

I'm talking, of course, about the horrific story that broke this summer in which we learned that a 28-year-old dad raped his toddler "too many times to remember" while his 36-year-old wife and the mother of the child often held the baby's hand "so it wouldn't hurt so much."

It's disgusting to think the dad won't get everything he deserves. But then again, maybe his serving as a witness against his wife ensures that justice is served for her, too? 

The mom in this case was a victim of sexual assault as a child and admitted to police immediately after her husband's arrest that she held the toddler's hand during the rapes. She has since been charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. You can seriously start playing a violin for her right now, if you wish, but my feeling is she is an adult woman who should have received help long ago for the abuse she sadly incurred as a child. She lost the right to receive compassion, in my opinion, the second she allowed her own flesh and blood to experience the same abuse and pain that destroyed her life.

And, according to her daughter's reports, mom wasn't just an innocent lamb standing by her husband's side. She allegedly also took photos of her daughter's private parts. 

Despite my wanting this woman locked up for the rest of her life, something I know her husband's testimony will help happen, I'm still disgusted that 10 of the 12 charges originally brought upon the dad are being dropped in exchange for his guilty plea. He is now being charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and faces two consecutive terms of 25 years in prison for each count. 

And yet, that doesn't seem like justice for ruining his child's life. I wasn't sure at first how I felt about an Alabama's lawmaker's bill to force sex offenders to be surgically castrated -- until now. In this case, at least, I'm all for it.

How do you feel about the guilty plea this dad was offered? Is the sentence he might receive good enough?

You see, this is what's wrong with our country. Who gives a flipping dime if he has the term "guilt" attached to his name. They both need to be physically castrated and then tortured just like they did to that little girl.

There comes a time in everyone's life that they have to become responsible for their own actions. So this woman was sexually abused and didn't receive treatment for her issues, that makes her actions OK? Not by a long shot. Unfortunately there are a lot of people who have had similar experiences that grow up and become more protective of their child because of what they went through. That piece of $hit husband and wife team need to be SURGICALLY castrated, and then put in general population in prison with a BIG neon sign on their backs letting the others know exactly why they are there and let prison justice take it's course.

The death penalty should be handed down in cases like this....for both of them. They do not deserve to live on the same planet as that little girl anymore. Sick.

If I remember correctly, these two 'things' had a child for the SOLE purpose of paternal rape. He was into incest before marriage, she knew it and he only agreed to marry her if she agreed to have a child in which he could live out his 'fatherly love'. Fry them BOTH I say. This didn't just happen. This was pre-meditated. That poor child!!!

We need to stop with the bullshit sentences and plea deals. ALL PEDOPHILES THAT ABUSE KIDS SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH END STORY.
