Father made his daughters pregnant 18 times

Father made his daughters pregnant 18 times

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/22/20100310...e-fa6b408.html

Two women who were repeatedly raped and violently abused by their father, bearing him seven children over 25 years, were given a formal apology by child protection agencies on Wednesday for systemic failure.

The admission was made during the publication of an executive summary into a review of the case, which acknowledged the family concerned had had contact with 28 different public agencies and 100 members of staff over 35 years.

No one has been sacked or disciplined for the catalogue of errors, the multiple agencies involved said at a joint press conference in Derby where they lined up to apologise.

The 56-year-old father from Sheffield, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is serving a life sentence for repeatedly raping his daughters, whom he made pregnant a total of 18 times. He was jailed in 2008.

The man, whose crimes have been likened to those of the Austrian rapist Josef Fritzl, fathered seven children with the women, two of whom are severely disabled.

The review heard how he moved his family 67 times to keep his crimes secret.

In November, Sheffield Crown Court heard the abuse started when the women were aged between eight and 10.

If they refused their father's advances, they were badly beaten and sometimes held to the flames of a gas fire.

Sheffield and Lincolnshire's Safeguarding Children Boards apologised unreservedly for failing to help the two women, insisting lessons had been learned and systems changed.

"We want to apologise to the family at the heart of this case. It will be clear that we failed this family," said Sue Fiennes, independent chair of Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board.

"This report will not make comfortable reading for any of the organisations concerned with the family. We are all committed to working relentlessly to do all we can to minimise the risk of this happening again and indeed we have taken action."

At a joint press conference in Derby the numerous agencies involved say they were all to blame.

"No individual has been dismissed, or disciplined, or sacked. We failed this family because of an accumulation of acts that lead to a collective failure," said Chris Cook, Independent Chair of Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Board.

"We are genuinely sorry. We should have protected you."

Re: Father made his daughters pregnant 18 times

Why is this man still breathing??? Why is he being protected?? The authorities need to release his name and throw him to the prison wolves, so he can know how it feels to be preyed upon.

Sickening stuff.

They definitely need to figure out better ways to exchange information between districts and track people. The scumbag was obviously crafty enough to move 67 times. Although that is putting in a lot of effort to elude authorities, it's sad that an otherwise commonplace and relatively simple act repeated over and over was all it took to get away with what he was doing.

Maybe a person should have to prove to a realtor or the social housing authority how many places they have lived in in the previous five years because someone moving around that much must have something to hide.

Re: Father made his daughters pregnant 18 times

Here's another one of these sickening stories. They are more common than we think.

NJ man accused of raping, beating 5 daughters

Published - Mar 11 2010 06:11AM EST

By DAVID PORTER - Associated Press Writer

PATERSON, N.J.— A New Jersey man with apocalyptic visions is accused of years of terrorizing his family, raping his five daughters and impregnating three, beating his children with wooden boards and even moving at one point to avoid child welfare investigators.

The nightmarish picture of a family subjected to more than a decade of threats and violence and largely cut off from the outside world is emerging in a state courthouse where prosecutors are preparing to have the man stand trial five times, one per child victim.

As the first case nears trial, questions have been raised about whether state authorities could have put a stop to the abuse sooner. Some of the crimes are alleged to have occurred while the family was under scrutiny by the state child welfare agency, and after the father had been arrested and pleaded guilty to assault and child endangerment.

At a hearing last week, the 51-year-old man's former wife described in a calm voice her marriage to a man whose visions she said drove him to try to create "pure" family bloodlines by impregnating several of his teenager daughters.

"He said the world was going to end and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen," the woman testified.

Arrested in 2006, he stands accused of raping five of his daughters, three of whom are believed to have given birth to a total of six children. He is being held on $1 million bond.

Having been ruled competent to stand trial earlier this year, he faces 27 charges including aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, lewdness, child endangerment, aggravated criminal sexual contact and criminal sexual contact.

"We plan to proceed with all five trials if necessary," said Lisa Squitieri, the Passaic County prosecutor handling the case.

The Associated Press generally doesn't identify victims of sexual crimes and is not reporting the names of the husband and wife to protect the identities of their children, now all over 18 years of age.

Authorities say the assaults began in the mid-1980s and lasted until 2002, when the parents separated, and occurred at residences in Paterson, East Orange, Orange and Eatontown. The time period overlaps with the family's coming to the attention of the state's child welfare agency.

According to court records and published reports, the girls' father was arrested in 2000 and charged with kidnapping for allegedly trying to take three of his children from state custody at a Monmouth County medical center. He posted bail and later pleaded guilty to assault and child endangerment and was sentenced to a year's probation.

Prosecutors in Passaic County say one of the daughters, then in her early teens, was raped as late as January 2002.

New Jersey's Division of Youth and Family Services declined to comment, citing confidentiality requirements.

But the man's wife and one of his daughters testified that the agency had indeed removed at least one of the children from the family's home, and that the family had temporarily moved, first to Jersey City and then to Florida, to avoid the agency's investigation.

Prosecutors in Monmouth County, where the charges in the kidnapping case were brought, did not return phone messages.

In her testimony, his daughter described experiencing and witnessing beatings administered with wooden boards and steel-toed boots. She said minor transgressions often were punished by the withholding of food.

The girl's mother testified some of the babies were delivered at home and never received birth certificates, and said in at least two instances babies who died in the home were buried without authorities being notified.

The children were home-schooled, she said, and were discouraged from interacting with other kids.

"No one really asked questions of each other because somebody would tell on somebody and somebody would get in trouble," she said.

Even after she became aware of sexual abuse, she said she was too frightened to confront him.

"I was afraid to ever accuse him of being demented, or being a pedophile. I knew the word but I wouldn't dare use it because it would result in a beating," she said. "I'm sure my not standing up to him didn't help the kids. They felt disempowered also. There was just a lot of fear. Everybody was threatened."

Daryl Pennington, an attorney representing the defendant, did not return messages seeking comment.

Attorneys are scheduled back in court on Friday, when state Superior Court Judge Raymond Reddin is to rule on the admissibility of the wife's testimony. The first trial is scheduled to begin in April.

NJ child services is a hot mess. child services in this country are a not mess. they are just too slow in doing right by these kids...

I hope it is more to protect the identities of his victims than to protect him.

Just sick.

Re: Father made his daughters pregnant 18 times

I think 18 times is a bit excessive.

Re: Father made his daughters pregnant 18 times

My question is, how the hell do you apologize to them? We're sorry we allowed your father to rape you, make you bear his children, and pretty much ruining your life?

And here you are, a black unicorn.

Depending on whether the authorities ignored evidence, they may have cause for big lawsuits. (Like no teachers, doctors, cops, whoever noticed and reported anything?) Not that money can ever repair the psychological damage.

Of course one can say the same for soldiers thrown into a bogus war in Iraq in initially very vulnerable Humvees, who every day feared getting blown up by IED's, as many were (with many more wounded, often badly and permanently).
