Father Of 11-Year-Old Raped By As Many As 28 Men And Boys Says “She Will Never Recover From This”

- By Bossip Staff

Cleveland Texas Assaults

The parents of the 11-year-old girl who is believed to have been gang raped several times over a four month period last year are finally speaking up.

In his first interview, with The New York Times, the father of the girl, a 57-year-old carpenter named Juan, said he became aware of his daughter’s abuse in late November, when she arrived home at 3 or 4 a.m. after having slipped out without permission. She was shaking and weeping when her mother opened the door to their small white frame house, he said, and she immediately closed herself in her room.

Later in the day, she told her mother she had been raped after her parents found sexually explicit photos that had been sent to her father’s cellphone, which she had been using. She told her father that the men had threatened to kill her.

Juan, whose last name is being withheld to protect his daughter’s identity, said his wife reported the crime to the police three days later, but in court documents the Cleveland Police Department said it was first alerted on Dec. 3 by school authorities.

Juan said his daughter had been a bright and easygoing girl, adept at schoolwork. As she reached puberty, he said, she had grown tall for her age and had begun to talk about wanting to be a fashion model. Yet she was still a child; her bed was piled high with stuffed animals. “Her mind is a child’s mind,” he said. “That’s what makes me so angry.”

That’s what should be making everyone so angry. Regardless of how this child looked — she is a child — she could not legally give consent and the sick fawks who sexually abused her should be put under the jail for what they did.

What happened to that child ultimately changed her for life. People who knew her describe how her behavior changed once she was attacked.

“She has always been a really bubbly child,” said Brenda Myers, director of the Community and Children’s Impact Center, who worked with her. “She always had a smile on her face.”

But in October, just after starting sixth grade, the girl became withdrawn, Ms. Myers said, and in November, she stopped attending the center’s meetings.

Some folks seem to think her parents should have kept better tabs on her. The harsh reality is that her family was incredibly poor and dealing with numerous difficulties.

A 36-year-old cousin of the girl, who lived next door, said her family was in dire economic straits since Juan stopped working. The water and electricity had been cut off at times in recent months.

The house is empty now. Two weeks ago, the family moved to another town after detectives told the parents that they were in danger, Juan said.

The father said he had been worried about his daughter’s safety for months before the assaults. She had been sneaking out of the house two or three nights a week, he said, climbing out a bedroom window. Some nights she would come home as late as 11 p.m. or midnight, saying she had visited girlfriends. He said he and his wife had scolded her almost daily.

Both parents are plagued with health problems. Juan injured his back in November 2009 and has not held a steady job since. A diabetic, he receives disability checks of $700 a month. His wife, 42, was told last year that she had a mass in her brain, and a doctor had said it should be removed, friends said. She suffers frequent headaches and fainting spells.

Yet she put off surgery and continued to work at night at a cashier at an underground gambling parlor, friends said. “She wasn’t interested in living,” said Maria Luisa Lopez, a longtime friend. “She felt very sad.”

Two months ago, when the arrests started, the state Child Protective Services placed the girl, who had also received threats, in a foster home. “They told her it was best that they take her away from this town,” Ms. Lopez said.

A case worker has informed Juan that he and his wife must attend family therapy sessions to regain custody. Juan said he was despondent at the prospect of losing his daughter permanently. He said that she was doing well but that she was still fearful. “You can see she’s not happy,” he said. Then he added, “She will never recover from this.”

This is a damned shame. We pray that poor child gets the help and therapy she needs.

    This effects the Black community as a whole, so the question is what are we going to do.. For some reason it Black males doing this, not just there but in many communities around America..

    • DeePDX

      Your aggression and hate are not productive and not helpful to the larger argument of young girls being abused and victimized. To me, your statements are on par with the actions of the men accused of raping this child and the sad and sorry state this world is in.

    This has nothing to do with American Black. This is totally on the people who were apart of it. All black men are not the same, just like all white people are not the same.

  • 7lady

    Why do yall keep making this a male/female situation. It’s a black situation. Whatever you say about the blackmale points right back to the black female and vice versa. These are our kids. WE have to do somethin about it. Stop placing blame. Its a single black woman raising them…her fault. A black male is not there to help…his fault. So u see..WE hav to do somethin.

    • Gimmeabreak78

      @7lady

      Actually, the little girl and her family are Mexican-American.

  • onesmartchickee

    This is disgusting, the comments of those who cannot imagine that black men are to blame (those involved) with this horrible crime. An 11 year old child is not an adult. No woman regardless of age would want this terror. These monsters should be killed. They are NOT apart of my black community. I say bring in the night-riders for this one.

  • kp

    I 100% agree with you on how it probably happened. Being from the hood I have seen this happen with under age girls before(not 11yrs old tho)…this is sick, all individuals involved need help. Get a real woman

    My heart weeps for this child on some many different levels.

    What a heartbreaking story.

    I cannot imagine how impotent that father feels. I pray for this child and her family. I send them positive energies of love and light in their time of darkness.

    I dont think the father is lazy, he was hurt, U have no idea what these people’s problems are so you should not callhim lazy. U usually have some good intelligent things to say but I cannot agree with your statement, shes a little girl she wasent a hoe, she was misguided and threatened by a bunch of big black men! You have no idea what that might be like as a little hispanic girl so dont call that child a hoe. Ans I am not being racist its just it is. Gimmea break 78 is right

  • ~ChynaPeach~

    @TheMan thank you! @Kerry lol@ the ear wax comment. Lmaooo that was good.

  • ProudLatinaLuv

    I dont think any of you know what it is like to be a hispanic person in this country, but I do. I think these parents where affraid for some reason, everytime someone comes from another country people are always trying to scare you so you dont go to the police for shit. I remember people telling my mother to not even look at black people because they where bad I never understood that, we never listened to that because we c people for who they are but alot of hispanics are affraid

  • Black Queen

    And I shudder to think what her fate would have been if it had of been a group of hill billy krackers!

    Regardless this is a horible situation and they should pay.

  • southern twist

    These men belong in prison they knew this child was young … It was a small town how did he say she was 17 did they ever see her at school???I live in a small town also and I know who is of age and who is not theses men just wanted some a s s hence how rough they did her and sent it to her father lock em up!!! Animals

  • ProudLatinaLuv

    All I know is that they are all going to Jail and the Vatos aint hearing that she was a hoe shit, they gonna have fun with them just like those pigs did with the little 11 year old girl, mugrosos!

  • Mabel

    The term animals is completely fitting. They will be somebody’s spouse and father one day, if they are not already. I pity the unfortunate women who will have to receive these tainted men in their bodies and bring their seed into the world. I also pity the children who have to call them father. May justice be served!

  • free

    bottom line i think she was pimped by her family. if she has a reputation, everybody in the neighborhood and school is gonna know about it so what are people saying?

  • http://www.twitter.com/tatumforbes TAYYYYY

    thank you ! that’s the bottom line ! and these animals need to be shipped on off to the zoo aka jail where i’m sure the inmates will dish them a dose oft their own medicine.
