When you're a child, you would like think that you can trust your father with anything. He's supposed to be your rock. Especially, if you're a girl. Unless, of course you're this guy, who ruins it for all the great dads out there.
So, a perverse upstate New York dad recently admitted in court that he posed as his teen daughter's texting boyfriend to manipulate her to send him nude photos of herself. He then used the photos as leverage to begin sexually abusing the 14-year-old.
The sinister 41-year-old dad from Herkimer County, who remained nameless to protect the girl, pleaded guilty in federal court on Monday to 12 counts of enticing a child to produce child pornography and receiving and sending child porn. The man faces up to 250 years in prison for his crimes when he is sentenced later this year. He told the U.S. District judge, "It is very emotional. I'm giving away many years of my life." Um, yeah, about that. You're getting 250 years, buddy! You're giving away more than many years of your life! You're giving away you're whole damn life! Unless, you know something that I don't know and you're living for 300 years?
The man used a fake name, set up accounts with Instagram, AOL, and a texting service in 2013. He posed as a 16-year-old boy from Watertown and began chatting with his daughter. At first, the girl resisted his requests for her nude photos, but eventually relented. She later tried to break up with the "boyfriend." She wrote to him, "All you talk about is sex, sex and more sex. Honestly, that is not what a relationship is about." Well, she's 50-percent correct. Anyway, he responded with "Then I will send these to your dad and then I won't have to worry about anyone else having u." This is pretty sick!
After she broke up with "the boyfriend," the father conjured up the scenario that the boy committed suicide, but sent him the graphic images before he died. The sexual abuse came to an end when the girl reported it to a school nurse. Authorities later tracked down the girl's text partner, discovering the texts had been sent from inside her own home. Wow! Now, that's something you only see in movies! What the hell? That's some pretty creepy stuff! Well, regardless, the guy is going away for 250 years. I think we really need to warn the girl about making any new friends who say they are writing her from prison.
