    MI - Firefighter Accused of Enslaving, Sexually Abusing Daughter

    http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/dpp/news...obref=obinsite

    After two years of being held captive, used as a sex slave by her own father, a 15-year old girl walks into the Romulus Police station to get help. Police say she escaped.

    Now her father, a firefighter, could spend the rest of his life behind bars.

    "I hope to God this man never gets out of jail, " says Romulus Police Chief Robert Dickerson.
    ------

    Police say the girl had to sleep with her father , raise her younger siblings, all while going to school each day, pretending she was ok . But she had enough. She ran away to her mother, who took her to the police.

    This is so sickening to hear. I hope he spends the rest of his life in jail. I'm just at a loss for words.

    The suspect will be arraigned over the weekend, likely to be charged with 1st degree criminal sexual conduct.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    During a search of the man's home and work locker, detectives found evidence to support the allegations, police said. Detectives also received a written and videotaped statement in which the man admitted to sexual acts.

    From your link:

    "Chief Dickerson is urging all parents to talk to their children over this Holiday break to ind out what's really going on in their lives --at home, at school - everywhere.

    And kids speak up. Dickerson says if you need to, call 911 and the police will come pick you up."


    Hopefully this bolded sentence (BBM) will reach a child somewhere...

    So sad. Weird story. It says it started when she was 13, which I find odd. I wonder what happened 2 years ago. Did Mom leave? Usually, it seems abusers start earlier if there is opportunity.

    This girl was very brave and hopefully she will receive the love and support she needs.

    Not uncommon. Around 13 is when she probably began to develop. It was the age when my abuse began. I am so glad she found the courage to seek help.

    I wonder if the man is id'd by his occupation to try and garner some kind of sympathy for him? Most people seem to put fire fighters on a pedastal, a hero type person. He should be locked up for the rest of his life, and his fellow inmates should know why he is there.

    I was wondering about the background also..obviously he and the mother are separated but wonder why she didn't have the children, or at least this girl with her. At least the child felt she could turn to the mother for help and the mother did the right thing by taking her to the police.

    Here is my guess-because he is her father and a first responder he will get 5 years or less.

    They dont even call it rape in this story.

    They have so far only mentioned 1st degree criminal sexual conduct. However, one article did say 'numerous' charges. I hope that is correct. What about the production of child pornography, incest, slavery, etc.? Even though the one charge carries a possible life sentence, I hope the many other charges are not overlooked.

    I find it unusual that the identity of the suspect was not given. I have a feeling LE is treading carefully with this guy because he is a supposedly "trusted public servant" of 16 years. They could also be holding names close to protect the 15-year-old victim. Her life has been horrendous and people in the area will be able to identify the victim, which would make her life even more difficult.

    Without a name to search, it is difficult to follow up on this case. Let's hope we hear more about it when LE finishes its investigation and has it's I's dotted and T's crossed.
    The greatest trespasser on justice still wishes it done to him.

    I'm a bit media jaded, so my take on it is that they identify him by his job and the length of time he has been a firefighter in order to make the story even more shocking. There's a certain amount of shock value in the charges alone, of course, but why pass on the opportunity to make it even more shocking by letting everyone know exactly what this guy did for a living, which should have made him more trustworthy?

    Personally, I don't care what his job was, his most important job should have been fatherhood, but obviously, that didn't happen.

    I think they are using the firemen title just as a means of identification since his name has not been released. I doubt his name will be released at any time in order to protect the identity of his daughter.
