    In some states rapists can sue for parental rights. Luckily, Arizona is not one of them.

    I just googled the UK and rapists have the right to be notified of any major decisions involving the child.

    If facilities won't put in cameras, families should consider the
    nanny cams disguised in teddy bears. I'd bet this is common.

    So it looks like the facility is shutting down eventually. They have to figure out where they are moving the rest of the patients

    Ugh. I’m glad they caught this piece of trash. He looks as disgusting as he is. Honestly, this type of abuse had not even crossed my mind before. Raping vegetative patients??! :confused: But of course, wherever there is a vulnerable woman (or child), some man will be pulling his dick out. It’s so sick. But that needs to always be kept in mind.

    I am not sure I would want my relatives to stay there, but after an incident like this it will be on it's best behaviour in a way a new facility won't.

    This happens more often that people know. If she had not gotten pregnant no one would have known.

    A magazine did a series years ago about life for women in one of the rich middle eastern countries and one of the interviewees said a family member who visited a healthcare facility regularly would rape one of the comatose patients. The patient was a westerner. The patient got pregnant and one of the healthcare assistants who witnessed the rape blackmailed the family. The healthcare assistant was paid off with 100 grand and a green card. The family was that rich and powerful.

    Sad it took for that woman to be assaulted and pregnant for them to have a protocol in place, this should have been in place already.

    If sexual abuse is widespread in childrens homes and old peoples homes where victims can potentially tell on them I wouldn't like to think how these men act with victims who cant speak.

    Florida caregiver arrested after mentally disabled woman gives birth in group home
    By Hollie Silverman and Melissa Gray, CNN Updated 8:35 PM ET, Thu February 7, 2019

    [​IMG]
    (CNN)A caregiver was arrested on a charge of lewd and lascivious battery of a disabled adult after a woman from the Florida group home where he worked gave birth to his child, according to a probable cause affidavit.

    Willie Shorter Sr., 58, was arrested Wednesday, the same day police received DNA results showing he was the father of the woman's child, the affidavit from the Rockledge Police Department said.

    The woman is described in the document as mentally challenged, with the mental capacity of a small child. She cannot tell the difference between the truth and a lie or right and wrong, and therefore is unable to consent to sexual intercourse, it says. In January 2015, the woman, identified only as DB, was pregnant. She identified three possible fathers, two of whom were eliminated early in the investigation.

    The third man she identified was Shorter, who denied being the father. There was not enough evidence at the time to obtain a DNA sample, the affidavit says.

    Despite giving birth, the woman was not removed from the home, which was not named in the document. Last April, the woman reported that Shorter touched her vagina. Shorter denied it, but because he was named as a potential father in the 2015 investigation, police requested a DNA test. The results showed Shorter matches the DNA profile of the woman's child, with a 99.99% chance he is the father.

    Shorter made his first court appearance on the charge on Thursday, according to the Brevard County Jail website. CNN has been unable to reach Shorter or his family members at publicly listed numbers, and is trying to determine whether he has legal representation.

    I agree that the other two dudes probably were doing something to her as well but because the victim can't give an account there's nothing they can be charged with that will stick. I'm guessing the other two men were white or Hispanic and the baby came out dark so that's how the black dude got caught.

    I feel grimey for posting this but this is the victim and her family

"He is a rat, a filthy viral rat," Blanchard Sr. said about the suspect. The family held a press conference at Capt Hiram's in Sebastian. (Photo: ERIC HASERT/TCPALM)

    Imagine how many disabled women this man raped over the years.

    I knew a mentally disabled woman whose mental age was about about 5 and she was raped by a black man. She had a son after the rape. He was given up for adoption. 30 years later she would still scream bloody murder if she saw a dark skin black man. Her son eventually found her and visited her every week.
