Yeah, after sexually assualting an 85 year-old woman you definitely need some help…and Jesus!
The twin brother of accused sex fiend Jeffrey Ritter on Thursday delivered a powerful message to his locked-up sibling.
“I tried to help you and you chose the wrong path,” Jeremy Ritter, 32, said. “It hurts me to see you locked up. But from me to you, heart to heart, you have issues and you need help.”
Jeremy Ritter spoke out after trying for years to help his brother ditch the criminal life.
“I’ve done everything to help him out,” he said. “I gave him a place to live. I fed him. I let him use my clothes. I was a good brother to him, and he ended up screwing me.”
Uh, sir, considering the circumstances that is probably the poorest choice of words you could have possibly picked.
In 2000, Ritter moved to Nebraska with his brother to sell magazines door-to-door. Within a week, he was behind bars for robbing and threatening to rape and kill a 23-year-old woman.
Jeremy Ritter was initially arrested for the crime in a case of mistaken identity. Cops let him walk after the victim identified his brother’s voice.
Jeffrey Ritter got four years in prison, and after his release, he moved in with his brother and sister-in-law, who were living in Phoenix.
“He said he had changed. He said he’d go to church and all this,” said Jeremy Ritter, who asked to keep his current location secret out of fear of retaliation from gang members.
“But he got back to selling drugs, and we kicked him out.”
…Jeffrey Ritter moved in with his brother again – and again started using and selling drugs, Jeremy said. He was busted for failing to register as a sex offender and served six years in prison. He got out in June 2010 and moved to New York.
So this guy is a habitual line-stepper with plenty of time spent in the whoscow, no wonder he’s throwed off! He needs the kind of “help” that only a well-secured prison, with plenty of like-minded individuals can provide.
