Girl Accuses Father Of Forcing Her To Eat Cockroaches

A Wisconsin teen has accused her father of choking her and ordering her to eat cockroaches and a dead mouse.

The 15-year-old Madison area girl testified Wednesday during her father's child abuse trial in Dane County that she was starved at home and ordered by her father to also eat other insects.

The girl also said her father put a large plastic bag on her naked body and used duct tape around her waist before she was able to free herself. The Wisconsin State Journal reports the girl said her father choked her at least twice.

The 39-year-old Town of Madison man is charged with child abuse and sexual assault. He's pleaded not guilty. Her mother pleaded no contest last month to six counts of child abuse.

    People who abuse their kids should lose them. There are people out there who would do right by kids but for whatever reason can't have them. And people who can should also consider adoption. And people who abuse kids and are convicted should have to repay the state and federal governments all the tax benefits they got for having a kid. Do that a few times and people will stop having kids just for the benefits. Or at least treat their kids better.

    Jail... for a while? A while. Hmmm... What's a while? A long while, I should think. Don't worry though, he'll be treated well *cough* in prison for this type of crime - if he ends up there. ha Would be nice if we could guarantee that but I've never had much confidence in the system. We shall see. >:-(

    If this is true then they need to go to jail for a while.

    SOunds like a good menu for inmates on death row and other brutal crimes. Lots of protein and nutrients which is needed for survival. THis poor child will never forget this abuse. I just hope and pray she can be in a loving Christain home and be treated like a princess she deserves to be. Lord be with that baby.
