    Mother Had No Clue

    I think this is very strange that this mother had no idea that her
    daughter was being abused for years. Did they never talk at all?



    Police: Man Molested Girlfriend's Daughter
    Mother Claims Not To Have Known

    TIPTON, Ind. -- A man is arrested in Tipton County after he was accused engaging in sexual misconduct with his girlfriend's daughter over a three-year period.

    Police said Jimmie Wayne Allen, 44, of Logansport, had been hiding for more than a month in a Miami County home before a tip led police to arrest him on Thursday.

    Investigators said the child, who was 12 at the time, was molested for three years while living with Allen and her mother.


    The girl's mother told police that she wasn't aware of sexual misconduct involving her daughter.

    Police said their investigation began in May 2007.

    Allen is being held on $500,000 bond and has a warrant on a total 24 felony counts of child molesting and criminal deviate conduct.

    How sad.

    I think a lot of of children are good at hiding things that make them feel ashamed, or parents are good at turning a blind eye to things they don't want to see.

    It is not strange at all. Especially if the girl was threatened. It happens everyday, as sad as it is.

    Yep, molesters lie...she might have been told something like "If you tell your mom, she won't love you any more and will send you away" crap like that.

    Poor kid. I hope the mom DUMPED the creep!

    It took me three years to tell my parents anything that happened with my grandfather - they had no idea.

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    I am sorry if I touched on a sensitive subject. Maybe i'm being unrealistic
    in thinking this child would have shown by a change in her behavior or
    moodiness & that might be a tipoff of underlying problems that had not
    been expressed. I guess it would depend on the individual child.

    A lot spouses in abuse cases ignore warning signs, and even ignore the child making abuse claims because they feel that such a thing couldn't possibly happen to them. Its a sad cycle, especially if the abuse is being done by someone that is suposed to be a trusted member of a family.

    Ive known a lot of people that have gone through similar types of abuse. Its very sad because usually the person ends up losing a lot of trust in people

    What gets me, is when the mother has no clue, but then is told about the abuse and STILL stays with the husband. "Please don't do that again dear, it's not nice."

    After all, she wouldn't want to put a kabosh on her "perfect" little family.

    I pray this child gets some professional help, because believe me, it will be with her for the rest of her life.
