Doctors and nurses were shocked when a 13-year-old girl was brought in for a routine examination, and they found her to be pregnant. The underage girl is from Pinellas Park, Florida. When her mother questioned her further, the girl admitted to the staff that it was her mother’s boyfriend that got her pregnant.
By the time the girl was brought in to doctors, her pregnancy had progressed past the 4-month mark.
Police had to intervene in this situation, and they found that the mother’s boyfriend, 41-year-old Mark Philip Sutton, was a longtime pedophile and rapist, and had actually been sexually abusing the girl since she was 8-years-old.
Sutton was subsequently arrested and faces several charges of lewd or lascivious molestation, sexual battery and capital sexual battery, WFLA reported.
The condition of the victim following the horrific admission was not revealed.
Many readers questioned whether or not the girl’s mother was aware of the alleged abuse, considering how long it went on.
“If this pedophile had a previous record of sexual offences, how is it that he was able to live under the same roof with a preteen girl? Aren’t they supposed to avoid contact with minors, and be monitored to make sure they follow these rules? According to the victim, this had been ongoing since she was eight years old. How could this not be known to the mother?” one Newsiosity reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“The mother had to know something was going on for that long. He must have threatened the child. You don’t have to have a boyfriend living with you it’s that bad now. Make sure you know everything about them first,” another added.
