    I also can't imagine why in the world somebody will want to do this not only to a little child, and I can't imagine why somebody will want to do this to a family member as well. That is just down right sorry, scary, and asinine.

    To Ordnanceman, thank you for sharing. Incest and/or child abuse is a big problem in/outside of the home. To parents or care givers we must educate our children about inappropriate touching or any type of abuse. Their are people in families or professions who seek to destroy the innocence with their preverted minds. To confused, sometimes it's not that easy just to "point the finger."

    To Renita, I hope things turn out better for her and all of you people. Maybe she should come live with you over in Duplin County in order to stay away from that creep.

    To confused: Unless you have been through it you have no cluse. I suspected my father in law was doing something wrong, but I had no proof. I even asked my 2 daughters if he was touching them in an innapropiate way and both said no. Well come to find out, he told them he would kill me and my wife if they ever told on him. Thank god my youngest came out. He is now in prison until Oct of 2011. It should have been longer, but it got knocked down from 1st degree sexual assualt to indicent liberties with a minor(4) counts.

    If we could legalize castration maybe some of the child abuse in this country would go away. No punishment is severe enough for child molesters .

    Some one in the family had already suspected this was going on. So her mother should be punished just as well. Me personally would not had believed it if i had not heard it months before. What part Does the mother PLAY?Where was she?
