On Monday a man was sentenced after he was found guilty of repeatedly raping his stepdaughter. The mother of the child begged the court not to send this man to jail because she depends on him financially.
The child has stated that this started happening back in 2010-2015 when she was just 7 to 12 years old. The stepfather started grooming her from that age using the bible as his yardstick and would make her promise not to tell anyone.
This happened until his stepdaughter was old enough to understand that her stepfather has violated her. In the statement, she revealed it was the education received at school about relationships and intimacy that made her realize her stepfather has taken advantage of her.
However, the court has sentenced the 53-year-old man to 18 years behind bars. He was convicted for rape and sexual assault.
