PA Parents “Gift” Teen Daughter to Man?

 

 

A Pennsylvania couple has been charged with child endangerment for allegedly giving their teenage daughter away to a friend, according to the Associated Press.
The Amish teenager was allegedly

“gifted” to the scruffy, heavily bearded, and long-haired man when she was 14 and he was 47 – became his common-law wife, bearing him one daughter at the age of 15 and another girl just six months ago. They caught their neighbors’ attention, raising concerns and eyebrows as they walked outside.


Now 18, the girl, her daughters -and nine other young girls who may be her younger siblings -lived for years with Lee Kaplan in his modest, three-bedroom white bungalow on Old Street Road in the Bucks County working-class community of Feasterville.


Barefoot, wearing the long and simple solid blue or green dresses of their Old Order Amish heritage, the girls would play outside briefly, sometimes in the backyard where they helped grow vegetables and raise a passel of chickens. Property records indicate the house, built in 1926, once had a swimming pool in the backyard.

From time to time, Mr.Kaplan walked outdoors with the girls, holding the hand of the oldest. He sometimes took a couple of them with him to a nearby dollar store or to Lenny’s Hot Dog restaurant.

One neighbor after another called police and child-welfare authorities over the last several months and one reportedly as early as 2013. Their suspicions were apparently not strong enough; police said they were not specifically “child-abuse calls” and did not justify search warrants.

“You knew something was wrong,” neighbor Bob Greenfield said. He said he regrets not calling, too.

Authorities finally acted on Thursday, knocking on Kaplan’s door after neighbor Jen Betz called Bucks County Children and Youth Services. This time, police said they were able to get a search warrant because they had learned a key fact: A girl had been impregnated and given birth. Twice.



Kaplan is now charged with statutory rape of the teenager whose parents “gifted” her to him in gratitude for bailing them out of “financial ruin.” Her parents, Daniel Stoltzfus, 43, and Savilla Stoltzfus, 42, of Quarryville, Lancaster County, are charged with child endangerment.

All are being held on $1 million bail each.

Police said they believe the Stoltzfuses are the parents of all the children except the two Kaplan fathered. The Stoltzfuses claim they are the parents – but investigators said they can’t be sure as there are no birth certificates for any of them.

“It’s hard to even explain – there were a lot of children in the house, living in the basement, hiding in the chicken coop – but they are Amish and they have a different way of life. Authorities said all 12 of the girls were taken into protective custody of Bucks County Children and Youth Services.

Woman Allegedly Traded Daughter for Heroin

(originally posted in Huffington Post)
A woman in Warren County allegedly traded her 11 year-old daughter to a Cincinnati drug dealer in exchange for heroin.

On several occasions, April Corcoran allegedly sold her daughter to her drug dealer to have sex with, in exchange for heroin. The 41 year-old man, Shandell Willingham, would allegedly have sex with the 11 year-old girl, and would sometimes videotape it.

Authorities told the website that Corcoran allegedly injected heroin into her daughter.

Corcoran pleaded not guilty to the charges on Thursday. Her bail was set at $5 million according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutors said the alleged crimes took place between Feb. 15 and June 6 of last year. Corcoran, of Pleasant Plain, would drop off her daughter at the home of accused drug dealer Shandell Willingham, 41, and pick up the girl later.

Willingham was indicted on 26 felony accounts, including rape, human trafficking and for allegedly videotaping the sex crimes against the victim, according to USA Today.

Authorities learned about the alleged crimes last June when the child told her fatherand stepmother about it. The girl is now in their custody, according to WCPO TV.

Both Corcoran and Willingham could face life sentences if convicted, according to Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. He told Fox19.com the case is “exhibit A for how devastating heroin is to our communities.”

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told the station the situation was “sad beyond measure.”

“Instead of protecting her daughter, the mother saw her as a way to get drugs because the lure of heroin was apparently too strong,” he said.

Brother Shot to Death by Younger Sister -Why the Parents Are at Fault

Screenshot 2015-01-08 at 8.24.10 PM

White Springs, Florida-

I know the younger sister of this boy killed him but to me, after reading a bit more on this story- the parents caused ALL of this. Let’s start with how, according to the sister’s police statements, she endured years of sexual abuse from an uncle. Then this same girl is neglected by her parents, locked in a room for like 20 days at a time, with a bucket to pee in and a blanket. Add to this, the fact that the girl had suffered a beating from her older brother and he again locked her in her room. Where were the parents? Out of town and left these kids ALONE at the home, along with a toddler and a gun. A gun that once she escaped ( with the help of her 11 year-old sister) -the 15-year-old would use to end her  16-year-old brother’s life. Knowing all the problems this girl had, why would the parents leave them all alone? A tragedy was bound to happen. Because of this, I feel the parents needed to be charged- and they rightfully were:

ELK CITY, Okla. – A mother of four was arrested by authorities after she was accused of sexually abusing her children.
According to a report, Natalie Lynn Webb, 30, of Elk City, Okla. was arrested by police who said she was involved in the “sexual abuse and exploitation” of her own kids.

In an affidavit from police, it found that over the span of about three months, Webb had allegedly abused her children on several occasions. Police said Webb’s 9-year-old son told authorities that his mom had molested his younger brother and two younger twin sisters, and claimed he had at one point walked in on the abuse.

According to the Elk City Daily News, a report of forensic interviews conducted with the 9-year-old boy revealed statements accusing his mother of sexually exploiting her three youngest children by “selling sex” from them to other adults.“when asked who was doing that to (his brother), he said he did not know but Mom was getting paid. He said she was selling sex from (his sisters and brother). (The 9-year-old) said he would run and hide in the dumpster. When the boy was asked who mom would sell the children to he responded: ‘Like her friends.’    CLICK  HERE   to read the affidavit, which literally brought angry tears to my eyes for the sheer evilness this lady put her poor children through. Needless to say ‘Mom’ was taken in and jailed under a $2 million bond.  Why even waste time with a trial? She should just be stoned to death.

Anthony Brinkman Wanted Someone to Help Beat and Rape Own Daughter

Anthony-BrinkmanST. Louis Missouri  –

A father in Missouri has been accused of  posting an online ad looking for someone to help beat and rape his 11-year-old daughter Police were notified about the ad and had an undercover officer make contact  with 32-year-old Anthony Brinkman. Believing he was talking with a 27-year-old  female with an interest in books, walks on the beach, and pedophilia, Brinkman told her he wanted her to be  his girlfriend and to help him sexually assault his daughter.The undercover officer and Brinkman agreed to meet at a Cracker Barrel restaurant and return  to Brinkman’s house and rape his daughter with sex toys.Investigators didn’t believe Brinkman would actually show up, however, Brinkman arrived and brought his daughter along.

“It’s just a lot of talk for most of these guys, but this guy actually  brought (the girl) to the scene to go ahead with the next step of enacting it,”  said St. Louis County Detective Mike Slaughter. “If we hadn’t gotten  involved and someone bad had gotten in touch with him, something bad would have  happened to that little girl.”

Brinkman was arrested at the Cracker Barrel and is currently facing charges  of attempted statutory sodomy, but prosecutors said it’s likely that he’lll also be charged with sex trafficking of a minor. Brinkman is  now in jail on a $100,000, cash-only bond.

The girl was taken into police custody until relatives arrived to take her home. Police do not think the girl had been sexually assaulted in the  past, but plan on questioning her further.
