    The "buddy" of her dad who was also involved has just worked out a plea bargain, he was only sentenced 10 yrs. Again I am glad that there wasn't a trial to deal with but I am upset that he got off so much easier than her dad. Although I realize that her dad's role in this was much more vicious and him being the one that should have been PROTECTING her instead of destroying her he should have gotten the stiffer sentence. Everyone is doing well. I will post more later I am just wore out right now.

    the sentence isn't nearly long enough but, in no sense, will it be an easy 10 years for him because sexual predators whose victims were young children tend to be the flavor of the day when they finally get to prison. that's gotta be worth something...

    I'm so proud and happy for you and the girl! You are lucky the state let you keep her being a single parent. Here in Tx it's extremely hard. My daughter's godmother's niece (whew-follow that connection) was abused by her mom's boyfriend and so the state wouldn't allow anyone in the family to take her.

    I had to virtually fight to take her instead of her being placed in a overburdened house. The only objection they had, which they fought so hard over, was the fact that I'm a single, divorced mother. I got her and six months later she got to go back to her mother. But that's because Alina did what any mother would do-(she was in jail for the six months btw) she beat her boyfriend within an inch of his life while she waited for the cops to get there.

    But I do have one piece of advice. Be very careful of the mother. Document everything that you can: how often she visits the father in jail, how she sticks up for him, ect. Some states hate to take away parental rights unless they have no choice.

    sharpimom- you are right.....(not sure how to do a quote) the sentence isn't nearly long enough but, in no sense, will it be an easy 10 years for him because sexual predators whose victims were young children tend to be the flavor of the day when they finally get to prison. that's gotta be worth something...

    does anyone know what happened to the mom and where she was when this occurred?

    to do a quote is easy. in the lower right of your screen are two places to click on. one is "edit" and the other is "quote." if you want to quote someone, just click on "quote" on that person's post and their entire statement will appear and you can say what you like below it or delete parts you don't want to quote. if you read your post when it appears and think of one more thing or notice a spelling error do the same with "edit." does that make sense? maybe someone else can explain it better.
