A 10-year-old young girl was raped by a 37-year-old man, who also previously had criminal charges relating to drugs and traffic. But the sad part here is, the mother of the victim, who knew about the nasty incident didn’t report to the police but instead took her daughter to do an abortion.
The 37-year-old man named Tony Orlanda Singleton raped the young girl back in 2016 after entering her room while the young girl was watching SpongeBob Square pants in Estill, South Carolina.
On Wednesday, the prosecutors ordered the man to spend the rest of his life in a prison cell after they find, Singleton guilty to the crime of offensive sexual conduct to a minor. The jurors responsible for the order found the man guilty just within the 51 minutes.
The victim had her pregnancy terminated after her mother took her for an abortion. During the investigation, it was revealed that the DNA sample of the fetus matched with Singleton, making him biological father and obvious culprit.
This tragic disaster on the life of the young girl grabbed concern from the authorities after her mother told her father about the abortion. Father then called 911 and reported the incident. The mother is believed to face charges as she hid the fact and somehow served as the acquaintance of the culprit.
Prosecutor Hunter Swanson claimed that it is a total disgraceful to watch a young girl in the courtroom devastated, in a time where she should go school, gain knowledge, and enjoy the rest of her childhood. He further told that the man whom she trusted made her life a total hell.
