A 15-year-old was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted by a couple in Winston for several years. Now, the evil couple is held under arrest and will serve 100 years of prison life, combined.
The 34-year-old male Brandon Irving Helms will reportedly serve 88 years in prison while the 39-year-old female Marcy Lynn Helms will serve 18 years in prison. Forsyth County prosecutors commented that the women have been charged with child abuse and aiding for the rape of a child to happen.
The woman allegedly let her husband rape her eight-year-old girl from the previous relationship for nearly a decade. When the girl was 8, Brandon told Marcy that he would make the child his concubine. Brandon then repeatedly started abusing the girl until she was 13. And when she was 13, he started to have sex with her, eventually impregnating her at the age of 15. Brandon’s atrocious behavior didn’t stop after that, too, he again started raping the girl after she gave birth to his child.
The girl went on labor for 21.5 days, and awfully delivered the child on the table. After encountering such an episode, Brandon didn’t provide any medical aid to the girl but started raping her again. Kia Chavious, Assistant District Attorney, reported that Brandon raped the girl in multiple locations, including random houses and even cars.
The Helms are convicted of abusing other children as well. The court report claimed that after the Helms became homeless, they took the girl and several other children to an abandoned house that was exposed to open defecation and running water.
Judge David Hall sentenced him 88 years in prison for his 20 different horrible crimes. He would then be called a registered sex offender if, by any means, he managed to escape out.
