Posted by Sandra On November - 23 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

nintchdbpict000283258320A woman who was raped by her stepdad as a child saw him jailed 26-years later after she forced him to confess on his doorstep. The brave victim – now 40 and a mother of two – confronted Jeff Aitken, 60, over his vile sex abuse in a showdown at his home in Stevenston, Ayrshire. A police investigation followed, and after his conviction she said: “He can rot. It shows you never give up on justice. He destroyed my childhood, teenage years and adulthood.” But in a message of hope to other victims of historic abuse, she added: “Don’t give up hope. It’s hard but never give up.” READ MORE HERE

Turkey Withdraws Plan to Legalize Child Rape After Outrage

Posted by Sandra On November - 23 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

The law would have deferred sentencing for men who have married girls under age 18, which opponents say would essentially legalize child rape.

turkey-withdraws-child-rape-law-after-international-outrageTURKEY – Turkish leaders plan to rework a bill some say would have legalized child rape, as long as the attacker married the victim, after it sparked protests across the country last week. Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirimsent on Tuesday sent the bill, which would have applied to at least 3,000 men currently in prison, back to be changed by a parliament subcommittee after people in Turkey and around the world said the law appeared to consider child rape permissible. The ruling party in Turkey, the Justice and Development Party, also known as AK Party, brought the bill to the floor of the Turkish parliament amid opposition from some in the legislative body and several women’s rights groups. The bill is aimed at reducing the number of husbands sent to jail — leaving wives and children alone — by deferring sentencing for men who marry girls under age 18. READ MORE HERE

Missouri Child Abuse Case Worst Local Police Have Seen

Posted by Sandra On November - 12 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

s071877225-300A young child clings to life after a horrific case of child abuse in Wentzville, Missouri. This is likely one of the worst cases of infant abuse that police in Wentzville have ever dealt with. It all began Thursday with a six-week-old doing what babies do, cry. Police say the infant’s father, Robert Burnette, couldn’t deal with the crying so he shoved his fingers down the baby’s tiny throat. He was trying to reach the boy’s larynx to stop the crying. Investigators say they got these details from the child’s mother, Megan Hendricks, who investigators say stood by and watched and made no attempt to stop the abuse.
