Incestuous man fathered daughter‘s sons

A court has convicted a 69-year-old man of incest, coercion and bodily harm against his daughter, with whom he fathered three children.

The daughter stayed silent for more than 30 years because she feared for her life after her father – whom she described as violent – said he would kill her if she spoke out.

German news agency dapd reported that the state court in the southern German city of Nuremberg sentenced the man, identified only as Adolf B, to two years and eight months in jail.

“Prosecutors had sought a 14-year sentence and convictions on 497 counts of alleged rape over 34 years, beginning when the daughter was 12,” The Guardian reported.

“However, the presiding judge, Heydn Gunther, said there was insufficient evidence of violence to sustain the rape charges, and too many contradictions in the testimony of the daughter.”

The court acquitted the man of rape charges, ruling that the sexual acts were consensual.

The 46-year-old daughter came forward in March and accused her father of having forced her into sexual contacts when she was about 13.

“Only in 2010, when the daughter was charged with extortion and assigned a probation officer, did she report the alleged rape,” The Guardian said.

Renate B gave birth to three handicapped sons, two of whom have died.

Adolf B claimed other men had fathered the children.

He denied the prosecution‘s claims that he forced his daughter to have sex with him at knifepoint. He said his daughter was a “willing participant”.

Renate B’s lawyer, Andrea Kuehne, said her client was “shocked and furious” at her father’s denials.

The prosecution said Adolf B was known locally for his aggression – especially when he had been drinking – and that he viewed his daughter as “his property”.

Adolf B’s wife said she knew nothing about the abuse.

A 36-year-old man, Raymond Obi Eze, has been arraigned before an Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court, Lagos, for sneaking into a couple’s bedroom to watch them making love, while he hid under their bed.

The couple,  Mr. Leuise Chigozie and his wife, Vicky, said they were making love when they noticed the accused hiding under the bed watching them.

He (accused) told the police that he was not a thief neither did he attempted to harm the couple, but was only watching them to derive sexual satisfaction  and pleaded for leniency.

Witnesses, who assisted the couple to arrest the accused, said they believed the accused was watching Chigozie making love to his wife.

According to the police charge sheet, the incident happened at 8.30 p.m. Friday,  December 9, at the couple’s residence at 40, Ejigbo Road, Idimu, Lagos.

However, when the plea of the accused was taken in the court, he pleaded not guilty to the two-count charges brought against him.

A local prosecutor is among three people who were injured during a shooting inside a northern Minnesota courthouse.

A hospital spokeswoman says Cook County prosecutor Timothy Scannell was being treated for gunshot wounds Thursday evening at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth. Spokeswoman Beth Johnson says Scannell is in stable condition.

Scannell and two other people were shot earlier Thursday at the Cook County courthouse in Grand Marais (muh-RAY’), a small town near the Canadian border. Authorities say a suspect was quickly taken into custody, though no other details about the shootings have been released.

Another victim also is hospitalized, while the third victim has been treated and released from a local hospital. Scannell was the prosecuting attorney in a trial this week involving a man accused of criminal sexual conduct.
