Saudi preacher gets 8 years for raping, killing daughter
8 October 2013

Image

AFP - A Saudi court sentenced a preacher convicted of raping his five-year-old daughter and torturing her to death to eight years in prison and 800 lashes, a lawyer said Tuesday.

In a case that drew widespread public condemnation in the kingdom and abroad, the court also ordered Fayhan al-Ghamdi to pay his ex-wife, the girl's mother, one million riyals ($270,000) in "blood money," lawyer Turki al-Rasheed told AFP. Blood money is compensation for the next of kin under Islamic law. The girl's mother had demanded 10 million riyals ($2.7 million).

Ghamdi's second wife, accused of taking part in the crime, was sentenced to 10 months in prison and 150 lashes, said Rasheed, who is lawyer for the girl's mother. Ghamdi was convicted of "raping and killing his five-year-old daughter Lama," he added.

The girl was admitted to hospital on December 25, 2011 with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns, activists said. She died several months later. Ghamdi, a regular guest on Muslim television networks despite not being an authorised cleric in Saudi Arabia, had confessed to having used cables and a cane to inflict the injuries, human rights activists said earlier this year.

Randa al-Kaleeb, a social worker from the hospital where Lama was admitted, said the girl's back was broken and that she had been raped "everywhere". Reportedly, Ghamdi had tortured and raped his daughter after he had doubted her virginity.

Rights activists in the kingdom had been campaigning for harsher punishment of Ghamdi when reports emerged in January that the court would only give him a short jail term and order him to pay blood money to the mother. In ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia, where rape and murder are among several crimes punishable by death, a father cannot be executed for murdering his children, nor can husbands be executed for murdering their wives. Such crimes carry a jail sentence between five to 12 years.

Puerto Rico man charged with raping granddaughter
27 November 2013

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Police in Puerto Rico have accused a 65-year-old man of raping his young granddaughter and having two children with her.

Angel Manuel Natal Bracety was charged Wednesday and is being held on an $800,000 bond.

It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. Natal told reporters outside the courthouse that he did not have anything to say about the case.

Prosecutors accused him of sexually assaulting his granddaughter starting when she was 12 years old until she turned 15. Authorities say the alleged assaults began in 2008 in the central town of Cidra.

Australia incest case: Deformed children found in remote farming community after generations of inbreeding
by John Hall
Wednesday, 11 December 2013

Image
The incident took place in a remote New South Wales valley like this one

The filthy and severely deformed offspring of a horrifying incest cult whose members bred together for generations have been discovered in a remote farming community in Australia.

Apparently unknown to the 2,000 people with whom they shared their fertile valley township in New South Wales, at least 40 members of the reclusive Colt family raised four generations of inbred children in one of the country’s worst ever cases of child abuse.

According to the Sydney Daily Telegraph - which published details of New South Wales Children’s Court’s judgement on the family - the case only came to light when authorities were informed that children living in a network of huts in the valley did not attend school. The subsequent New South Wales Police and Community Services investigation found deformed and disabled children living in squalor; unable to take care of themselves and lacking knowledge of basic hygiene, such as how to clean their teeth or use toilet paper. Many of the children were suffering from severe health problems brought on by inbreeding, with a number diagnosed with homozygosity deformations – mutations caused by inheriting identical genes from both parents.

Hardly any were capable of intelligible speech, many were deaf and/or blind, and those that could understand what investigators were saying were painfully shy due to spending their entire lives without communicating with anyone other their immediate family members.

The name of the valley in which the family lived has been kept secret to avoid identifying the victims of child abuse, and the members have been given pseudonyms for the same reason. The surname Colt is not the real family name. Despite this, New South Wales Children’s Court is understood to have released details of the case as it felt the world had to hear about one of Australia’s worst ever instances of incest.

The family is believed to trace back to the children’s great-grandparents, who were brother and sister. The incestuous siblings had a number of children, with these children raising another generation children of offspring among themselves. This third generation also chose to inbreed, giving birth to the children recently found living in squalor in the valley. In total, at least 40 inbred people were believed to have been born in the network of huts – which were not served with any electricity or running water.

Disney princesses used in shocking posters for sexual abuse campaign
by Lizzie Dearden
Friday, 27 June 2014

Image

Shocking images of Disney princesses being kissed by their fathers are being used by an artist in a campaign to raise awareness of sexual abuse.

One poster features Sleeping Beauty pushing against King Stefan’s chest as he embraces her and the scene is repeated for Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Jasmine from Aladdin with their respective fathers. The posters carry the statistic: “46 per cent of minors who are raped are the victims of family members. It’s never too late to report your attack.”

Saint Hoax, an anonymous artist based in the Middle East, said he drew the images to reach girls who may have been incest victims. He told The Independent he was inspired to start the project when one of his closest friends told him she was molested by her father at just seven years old. “It took her 14 years to be able to share that traumatising experience,” he added. “That story shock me to my core.”

He hopes his drawings of Disney princesses will attract an audience that would not be reached by other awareness campaigns. Saint Hoax, who famously created pictures of world leaders in drag for a campaign called “War Drags You Out”, said he did not think the posters clashed with Disney’s values of giving children hope.

On Friday, one day after the “Princest Diaries” were published on his website, he was emailed by a girl saying she decided to report her father for assaulting her after seeing the images. “I actually cried,” Saint Hoax said. “If the posters could change one person’s life, then it's worth it.”

According to the Office for National Statistics, 90 per cent of victims of the most serious sexual were attacked by a relative, partner, friend or someone they know.

Director of orthodox Christian gay group jailed for abusing sons
Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Image
Johan Quist

The director of Dutch gay Christian organisation RefoAnders has been jailed for two years for sexually abusing his sons, Trouw reports on Tuesday.

Johan Quist, 52, was found guilty of abusing the boys from about the age of 10 between 1998 and 2003 by a court in Middelburg last week. He was also ordered to pay the boys €8,500 in compensation.

RefoAnders was set up several years go as a meeting place for gay men from orthodox Christian families and organises weekly meetings in several Bible Belt towns. The group believes God can help people with homosexual feelings by steering those feelings but is sceptical about therapies to cure homosexuality, Trouw says.

Quist said in a 2010 interview he had wrestled with his feelings for years but had nevertheless married. He since found a 'mate' via RefoAnders who shared his situation.

Mother jailed for having sex with her 12-year-old SON while her partner watched and told her what to do over a webcam
By Sam Webb
6 August 2014

A mother has been jailed for having sex with her 12-year-old son - while her partner watched and directed her over a webcam.

The woman wore headphones as she abused the boy in her bedroom as her lover viewed online from abroad. The boy told police how he could hear his 39-year-old mother being told what to do as she gave him a 'sex lesson'. The offence came to light when the woman 'blurted out' that she had abused the older of her two sons while speaking to a domestic abuse charity about her partner.

A court heard that her 'highly destructive' partner had so far escaped justice. The woman, who cannot be named to protect her son, was jailed for three years and three months at Bristol Crown Court. Judge Michael Longman told her: 'Your behaviour towards your son was contrary to human instincts and basic decency. It occurred after you met a man who clearly was controlling and over-bearing; a man who, it is also clear, should be prosecuted himself but is outside the jurisdiction and beyond the reach of this investigation. Even though he was at a distance from you, he continued to exert that influence, but you continued to behave towards your son in a way which, despite that pressure, your own instincts should have prevented.'

The court heard that the boy was just 11 or 12 when the abuse took place. It came to light when his mother made a complaint at Next Link Domestic Abuse Services in Bristol. Her confession was passed on to Avon and Somerset police and she was taken in for questioning, and the boy was interviewed.

Prosecuting, Mark Hollier said: 'In a very ordinary voice, he described an incident to the police officers about how his mother had given him a sex lesson in the main bedroom of the family home and this was observed by [the partner] via a webcam and computer link.'

The mother - who cried through much of the hearing - denied 'volunteering' to have sex with her son. She was charged with engaging in penetrative sexual activity with a boy under 13 which she admitted. The court heard that her two sons were taken into care by social services and are now living with a foster family. The abusive partner is still abroad and police are liaising with authorities in that country - which can't be named for legal reasons - to bring him to justice.

Defending, Fiona Elder, said it was an 'extremely unusual' case and the mother was acting on instructions from her 'highly destructive' partner. She added: 'She's absolutely devastated by the loss of the children and what she has done.'

A psychiatric report found the woman had a personality disorder which made her susceptible to being in abusive relationships and would become dependent on abusive partners. Judge Longman imposed a Sexual Offences Prevention Order and ordered the woman to sign the Sex Offenders' Register indefinitely.

Australian judge says incest may no longer be a taboo
By Jonathan Pearlman
10 July 2014

A judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult siblings.

Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and "unnatural" but is now widely accepted. He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.

"A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now 'available', not having [a] sexual partner," the judge said. "If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you'd invariably have, they would say it's unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy. Those things have gone."

Judge Neilson made the comments during the trial of a brother charged with raping his younger sister. The man has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting his sister when she was 10 or 11 years old in 1973 or 1974 but has pleaded not guilty to charges relating to sex they had in 1981, when she was 18 and he was 26. "By that stage they are both mature adults," the judge said. "The complainant has been sexually awoken, shall we say, by having two relationships with men and she had become 'free' when the second relationship broke down. The only thing that might change that is the fact that they were a brother and sister but we've come a long way from the 1950s – when the position of the English Common Law was that sex outside marriage was not lawful."

The comments were labelled misogynistic and "completely disgraceful" by Sally Dowling, the crown prosecutor, who has asked an appeal court to appoint another judge. "The reference to abortion is particularly repellent," she said.

Dr Cathy Kezelman, an advocate for preventing child sex abuse, said incest was horrific, regardless of the ages of those involved. "The relational betrayal of the horrors of incest between a brother and sister of any age is abhorrently criminal," she told The Sydney Morning Herald.

Incest victim (14) gives birth to son
21 August 2014

A 14-year-old girl who gave birth to a son earlier in 2014 is now believed to have been the victim of incest from her 20-year-old cousin.

The 20-year-old man impregnated his mentally-unstable cousin in the Lower Austrian town of Mistelbach, with his paternity now confirmed through DNA testing. According to the news daily Kronen Zeitung, the woman gave birth to a son in March.

The man is accused of sexual abuse of a defenseless, mentally-impaired person, who may also have been a minor at the time of conception. The general age of consent for heterosexual relationships in Austria is 14, however section 207b of the applicable criminal code makes an important exception: if one of the partners is younger than 16 years of age and “not sufficiently mature to understand the significance of the act”, then the act is punishable.

As the result of a judicial decision, the man has subsequently been released from custody after questioning. A trial date for the abuse has yet to be set, according to spokesman Friedrich Köhl from the prosecutor's office in Korneuburg.

German ethics council calls for incest between siblings to be legalised by Government
by Lizzie Dearden
Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Image
Patrick Stuebing was prosecuted in Germany, 2005, for conceiving 4 children with his biological sister, but he now is sterile.

Germany’s national ethics council has called for an end to the criminalisation of incest between siblings after examining the case of a man who had four children with his sister.

Patrick Stuebing, who was adopted as an infant and met his sister in his 20s, has launched several appeals since being imprisoned for incest in 2008 and his lengthy legal battle has prompted widespread public debate.

Sexual relations between siblings or between parents and their children are forbidden under section 173 of the German criminal code and offenders can face years in prison. But on Wednesday, the German Ethics Council recommended the section be repealed, arguing that the risk of disability in children is not enough to warrant the law and de-criminalising incest would not remove the huge social taboo around it.

The chairman of the council, Christiane Woopen, was among the 14 members voting in favour of repealing section 173, while nine people voted for the ban to continue and two abstained. A statement released on Wednesday said: “Incest between siblings appears to be very rare in Western societies according to the available data but those affected describe how difficult their situation is in light of the threat of punishment. They feel their fundamental freedoms have been violated and are forced into secrecy or to deny their love. The Ethics Council has been told of cases where half-siblings did not grow up together and have only met in their adult lives.”

Such was the case with Mr Stuebing, who was adopted at a young age and traced his birth family in his early 20s. He and his sister Susan Karolewski, who were not brought up together, met for the first time when they were aged 24 and 16 respectively. He was convicted of incest in 2008 and spent three years in prison, failing an appeal to the Federal Constitutional Court in 2008 and to the European Court of Human Rights over his rights to a family life in 2012. Ms Karolewski was allowed to keep custody of their youngest child but the other three were taken into care. Two are disabled, although it is not known whether incest is the cause.

In a statement outlining its recommendations, the Ethics Council said the law against incest “put couples in a tragic situation”. “The majority of the German Ethics Council is of the opinion that it is not appropriate for a criminal law to preserve a social taboo,” it added. “In the case of consensual incest among adult siblings, neither the fear of negative consequences for the family , nor the possibility of the birth of children from such incestuous relationships can justify a criminal prohibition. The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination has more weight in such cases than the abstract protection of the family.

Members objecting to decriminalising incest argued that it would weaken “ethically significant” family values that contribute towards personal development. A spokeswoman for Angela Merkel's CDU party, Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker, responded to the Ethics Council's vote saying that the abolition of the law against incest would give out the wrong signal. “Abolishing criminal punishment against incestuous actions within a family would go completely against protecting the undisturbed development of children,” she told Deutsche Welle.

The Ethics Council’s recommendation only covered incest between siblings and members did not recommend decriminalising sex between parents and children.

:?

This ethics council obviously doesn't know its ethics from its elbow.

Incest has been taboo for a very good reason, which was again proven by these two, that the chance of disabled children is very real. Two of their four children are disabled! An earlier report on Pakistani families in Britain also showed a disproportionate ratio of disabled offspring because they kept marrying cousins.

The taboo of incest can be found across all cultures and religions, going back to earliest days of humanity. No reason to change that now!

Morons.

Teen's disappearance helps reveal Alabama sex ring
3 November 2014
By JAY REEVES

The teen hasn't been seen since May 2012 and is presumed dead, but 11 relatives and family friends have since been arrested as members of an alleged ring that swapped children for sex. Authorities said Wood could have been a key witness. (AP Photo/Jay Reeves)

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) -- By most accounts, 19-year-old Brittney Wood was with uncle Donnie Holland the night of May 30, 2012, the last time anyone saw her.

Holland - who was under investigation for horrific sex crimes at the time - died from a bullet within days in what was ruled a suicide. The investigation that followed has publicly unraveled what authorities describe as a dark, twisted tale of perversion in the working-class neighborhoods and piney backwoods of coastal Alabama.

Eight of Woods' adult relatives and three family friends have been charged with dozens of felonies in two counties as the alleged members of an incestuous ring that authorities say shared children for group sex. Holland was the leader, prosecutors say, of what has been described as the largest sex ring ever uncovered in Alabama. Wood was a victim and likely key witness. "Brittney could have been huge," said prosecutor Teresa Heinz. "She could have corroborated so many things."

Wood is presumed dead, but authorities haven't found a trace of her and no one is charged in her disappearance. Even without Wood to testify, two of her uncles and an older brother already have pleaded guilty to sex charges, and jurors this month convicted a friend of Holland's of multiple sex charges in the first trial. Others - including the missing teen's mother, Chessie Wood, and two aunts - await trial.

Chessie Wood denies committing any crime, but says some of her closest relatives are guilty of abusing children, including of abusing her daughter. "There are innocent people in this and there are guilty people in this," Wood, 39, said in an interview. "I don't know how the judicial system is going to figure it all out because they're not the sharpest tools in the shed."

Chessie Wood, accused of having sex with a young female relative, said she had no idea what was going on in the family until after her daughter's disappearance. "The No. 1 thing here is to find Brittney. The No. 2 thing is to get all these sick (people) off the streets," she said.

Authorities are making plea-bargain offers and getting ready for more trials, but questions persist. Perhaps most troubling, why didn't child welfare workers pursue charges following what prosecutors describe as multiple complaints about sexual abuse within the family going back at least six years?

"You'd be surprised how many of them had prior allegations. Nothing happened," said Heinz, an assistant district attorney in Baldwin County. "You have to wonder what wouldn't have happened to these children if something had been done. And Brittney might still be alive."

The case is so big officials don't know exactly how many kids inside and outside the family might have been victimized; estimates range from 11 to 16 children who were as young as 3 or 4 when they were first molested or made to watch adult relatives during drug-fueled orgies. The children of the suspects have all been placed in foster care or with relatives who weren't involved in the crimes.

Brittney Wood isn't the alleged victim in any of the cases filed so far; each involved other young people, mostly within her family. But the investigation mushroomed only after she was reported missing and her uncle Donnie had died. Authorities believe group sex and child sexual abuse went on for three generations in two families that merged when Holland married Wendy Wood, Chessie Woods' sister. "Donnie was the manager. He'd say, `I've got this child and this adult, come on over,'" said Mobile County Assistant District Attorney Nicki Patterson.

Brittney Wood, meanwhile, led a life that was troubled long before folks on the Alabama coast came to know her smile because of missing persons fliers posted in store windows and shared on social media. The single mother of a daughter born when she was 17, Wood was molested as a child by a step-grandfather who went to prison for the crime, said Patterson. Before she went missing, Patterson said, Wood was using drugs and had a gun for personal protection while bouncing between relatives' homes; others often cared for her daughter.

A relative reported Holland for allegedly abusing one of the family girls in February 2012, authorities said, and word spread through the clan. Private Facebook messages provided to The Associated Press by Stephanie Hanke, Brittney Wood's stepmother, show that a female relative informed Wood about being raped by three male relatives on May 27, just three days before Wood vanished.

The night of the disappearance, cellphone records and witness accounts indicate Wood left west Mobile with Holland and crossed Mobile Bay into Baldwin County, where Holland was found two days later inside his SUV by his wife and one of her friends. He had been shot in the rear of his head behind an ear, which authorities considered an odd spot for a self-inflicted wound. Holland was scheduled to be questioned about allegations of sexual abuse the very day he was found in the car on an isolated dirt road. Wood's cellphone battery was in the vehicle with Holland, but there was no sign of the teen. Her gun was there as well, it was the only gun in the car. Holland never regained consciousness and died several days later.

After Holland died, relatives and police wondered about Wood. "We didn't even realize she was missing until after they found him shot," said Hanke. Searches for the teen began and the sex abuse probe picked up, too. Two of Woods's uncles, Dustin Kent and Scott Wood, were arrested within three weeks and later pleaded guilty to rape and sodomy. Aunts and family friends were eventually charged.

This month, family friend Billy Brownlee, 50, was convicted in Baldwin County on charges of sexually abusing a girl in the Holland family when she was about 12. Brownlee claimed Donnie Holland forced him into the acts against his will, but jurors needed only 20 minutes to return a guilty verdict. Donnie Holland's 35-year-old wife, Wendy, is set for trial in early December in what could be a key prosecution. Court records show she has pleaded not guilty, and Heinz said she shows no interest in a plea agreement.

Still, authorities wonder how child sexual abuse could go on for years between so many people without anyone being charged until 2012. One girl accused an uncle of sexually abusing her as early as 2008, Heinz said, but welfare workers found the complaint unsubstantiated. "You look at these reports and wonder, `Why? How did it not go anywhere?'" said Heinz. Barry Spear, a spokesman for the Alabama Department of Human Resources, said privacy statutes prevent the agency from commenting. "I can't even say whether we're had any involvement with this family at all," Spear said.

Fathers rape with impunity, fuelling Guatemala's teen pregnancies: rights group
By Anastasia Moloney

BOGOTA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - In Guatemala, most pregnancies among girls under 14 are the result of rape at the hands of fathers or other relatives, but often it is the girl who is forced to leave the family home, and few perpetrators are punished, said a leading rights campaigner.

Nearly a quarter of all births in Guatemala are among teenage mothers - one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in Latin America.

"In the majority of cases of sexual violence against girls, some as young as 10, most are committed by family members, mainly by the girl's father or stepfather," said Mirna Montenegro, the head of Guatemala's Sexual and Reproductive Health Observatory (OSAR).

In 2012, nearly 90 percent of all pregnancies among Guatemalan girls under 14 involved relatives, including cousins and uncles, of which 30 percent were the result of rape by fathers, according to Guatemala's human rights ombudsman. Despite new laws passed in Guatemala to better protect against sexual violence, few who commit rape against girls are punished. "Getting justice for girls who report crimes of sexual violence is still a big challenge for us. Often it's the pregnant girl who is removed from her home and placed in a refuge and not the perpetrator of the crime," Montenegro told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a telephone interview. According to a 2009 law, sex with a child under 14 is defined as rape, but of the 2,000 reported cases of under-14s getting pregnant in 2012, only eight resulted in convictions, Montenegro said.

Guatemala's children's prosecutor, Harold Flores, said the country's high teen pregnancy rate was a "scourge", and there were few convictions for rape carried out on girls under 14. "We want girls, who have been victims of sexual violence, to remain in their home or be under the care of a relative. In some cases in the past girls were placed in government care and the aggressor wasn't arrested," he said from Guatemala City. "It's deplorable that many of these cases are a result of sexual violence within the nuclear family: stepfathers, uncles, fathers, and grandfathers. We're reaching more and more girls as soon as we hear about a case and we have expanded our presence across Guatemala and rural areas," Flores said.

MACHO SOCIETY

High levels of sexual violence against women and girls stem from the low status of women, especially indigenous Mayan women, in Guatemala's patriarchal and macho society.

"Machismo is about men believing a woman is their property and possession. We've heard fathers say 'She's my daughter and my property so I will do what I want with her," said Montenegro. She said gender violence is also a legacy of Guatemala's 1960-1996 civil war when rape was used as a weapon of war.

Complications during pregnancy and childbirth are the second highest cause of death for 15 to 19 year-old girls globally, and babies born to adolescent mothers face a 'substantially higher risk' of dying than those born to women in their early 20s, according to the World Health Organization. In Guatemala, teenage pregnancy is most common among uneducated indigenous girls, especially in poor rural areas. "Girls in rural areas don't have or know other options in life. Their lives are limited to finding a partner, having children and looking after the home," Montenegro said.

Guatemala's high prevalence of child marriage, where girls can marry at 14 with their parent's consent, also fuels adolescent pregnancy, Montenegro said. Guatemala's congress is considering a bill that would raise the minimum legal age for marriage to 16 for girls and 18 for boys, with the issue a debating point ahead of the country's presidential election run-off on Oct. 25. "For this first time we've seen the issue of child marriage come up during the election campaign. The majority of presidential candidates have said they are in favor of raising the minimum age for marriage," said Montenegro, whose organization is an alliance of universities, non-governmental organizations and lawmakers.

Last year, 5,100 girls under 14 became pregnant in the Central American country, up from 4,354 in 2013, according to OSAR. One reason for the increase is because hospitals and health providers have to report pregnancies among girls under 14 under a law passed in 2012.

Fort Worth couple jailed, accused of coaching children to have sex
By Deanna Boyd
September 1, 2016

FORT WORTH, Texas - A former military couple is in jail, accused of sexually assaulting two children over several years in an effort to teach the kids about sex.

Both the husband and wife are accused of “watching, coaching and instructing” the children on how to perform and participate in sex acts with the adults, according to arrest warrant affidavits. Jose Ernesto Ramos, and his wife, Annetta Theresa Ramos, allegedly confessed to some of the allegations in a 2014 interview with a Crimes Against Children detective who was fired last July by Fort Worth police over his mishandling of investigations.

Despite the confessions, police say Detective Dennis Hutchins never obtained arrest warrants in the case and lied to investigators with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) when they inquired about the status of the case, saying it was under review by prosecutors. The case was recently reassigned to Detective C.E. Pratt as part of a task force review of Hutchins’ cases. Pratt obtained warrants for the couple and they were arrested last week.

Jose Ramos, 40, was charged Wednesday with aggravated sexual assault of a child and continuous sexual abuse of a child under age 14. Annetta Ramos, 31, was charged Wednesday with two counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child under age 14. They were being transferred to the Tarrant County Jail on Thursday, with bail set at $500,000 each.

Ray Hall Jr., the couple’s defense attorney, said he has not yet received any information from police regarding evidence in the case, nor has he reviewed the alleged video statements made by his clients in 2014. “I need to look into how the case was handled by the former detective that was investigating,” he said Thursday.

The alleged abuse occurred at the couple’s home in south Fort Worth. The warrants accuse Annetta Ramos of “watching, coaching and instructing” the female victim on how to perform sexual acts on Jose Ramos and forcing the girl to comply.

Jose Ramos is accused of “watching, coaching and instructing” the boy on how to perform sex acts on Annetta Ramos and participating in the acts. Jose Ramos is also accused of sexually assaulting the girl.

The abuse had allegedly been going on for years before one of the children — by then in their teens — made an outcry to a friend in December 2014. That friend alerted a high school counselor, which led Fort Worth police and Child Protective Services to get involved. In an interview with CPS that same month, the teen girl said Jose Ramos would order her to have sex with him. If she resisted, he threatened to hit her or physically grabbed her, the affidavit states.

The teen boy told CPS that Jose Ramos made him engage in sexual acts with Annetta Ramos. He said Jose Ramos remained in the room during the encounters, instructing him as it occurred, according to the affidavit. The teen boy said Annetta Ramos stopped sexual contact with him when he was about 13 or 14 because she decided she didn’t want to do it anymore. He said Annetta Ramos threatened to leave her husband if he continued, the affidavit states.

The teen boy told CPS that he had decided to come forward about the abuse after the teen girl told him that Jose Ramos intended to have another man have sex with her.

Jose Ramos voluntarily met with Hutchins in late 2014 for an interview that was recorded on video, according to the affidavit. In the video, Ramos allegedly tells the detective that he had agreed to talk to “make this as painless as possible.” “The suspect stated he planned on pleading guilty to this,” the affidavit states.

Ramos told the detective that not all of the allegations made by the two children were true “but quite a bit of it was.” He admitted having vaginal, anal and oral sex with the girl multiple times over the years. “The suspect admits that he and his wife Annetta would participate in teaching the [children] about sex and that he and his wife would remain in the room during the sexual acts,” Pratt wrote in the affidavit.

Jose Ramos told Hutchins that he and his wife eventually agreed to stop the sexual acts but that he continued with the girl without his wife’s knowledge. In a separate video recorded interview, Annetta Ramos told Hutchins that her husband had talked to her about teaching the children about sex. She said she was present when her husband was having sex with the girl to make sure things didn’t go too far. “The suspect states that there was nothing forceful, that it was gentle,” the affidavit states. “The suspect states that it was not rape or forceful.”

The affidavits do not indicate whether Annetta Ramos made any admissions regarding the allegation that she engaged in sexual acts with one of the children.

Hutchins never wrote arrest warrants for the couple but CPS prevented them from having further contact with the children. According to Hutchins’ termination letter by the department, an NCIS investigator had contacted the detective in January 2015 and learned that Fort Worth police were conducting an investigation involving the Ramos couple.

Two months later, another NCIS investigator called Hutchins to check on the status of the case. Hutchins allegedly told him that the case was pending a review by prosecutors.

In June 2016, a third NCIS investigator called Hutchins to ask about the case. Hutchins told that investigator he would confer with the district attorney’s office and call him back, but never did, the letter states.

“In an internal affairs interview, Detective Hutchins stated he ‘set the case aside’ and was waiting to confer with an additional prosecutor with the Tarrant County district attorney’s office,” the letter states. “In the same interview, Detective Hutchins agreed that from March of 2015 to March of 2016, he never made any additional attempts to contact the Tarrant County district attorney’s office or conduct any further investigation in the case.”

Hutchins is appealing his termination. His attorney has said the fired detective “hit a point of burnout” in a significantly understaffed unit with crushing caseloads. The review of Hutchins’ cases is continuing.

An official with Naval Air Station Fort Worth said Jose Ramos served in the Navy from 1995 to 2011, including a stint at NAS Fort Worth from 2001 to 2003. His most recent assignment was in Naval Construction Group 1 in Port Hueneme, Calif. Annetta Ramos served in the Navy from 2004 to 2009. Her most recent assignment was in Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 40 in Port Hueneme.
