She was just seven when her brother Jason, then 12, started abusing her. Middleton revealed to the police her ordeal in 2008 and Jason was convicted of rape in July 2009 at the High Court in Glasgow and sentenced to four years in prison; he was released from prison in March 2013, after serving three years of his sentence (Closer Staff).
* Warren Jeffs, 55, self-proclaimed prophet and leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, was convicted of two counts of sexually assaulting a child, one 12 and one 14 year old, and sentenced to life for the first count of aggravated sexual assault and an extra 20 years, to be served consecutively, for the second count of sexual assault, the maximum allowed for each count, in the first week of August 2011 in Texas. He was also given a $10,000.00 fine.
The FLDS’s Yearning for Zion compound in Eldorado, Texas was raided by the police in April 2008 in response to a call to an abuse hotline that turned out to be a hoax. However, they found women dressed in frontier-style dresses and hairdos from the 19th Century and pregnant underage girls; more than 400 children who had been placed in protective custody but were eventually returned to their families.
Investigators found out through pictures, journals, and recordings which Jeffs made and maintained to document everything he did that the notorious polygamist warehoused hundreds of young girls and women, some as young as 12, and brainwashed and indoctrinated them to satisfy his sexual desires.
A picture found by investigators showed 50 of his young wives in a group shot. Jeffs had 78 wives, 29 of whom are said to have been former stepmothers or those who have previously serviced Rulon Jeffs, Warren’s father and predecessor as the ecclesiastical leader of the polygamist sect FLDS, a radical offshoot of mainstream Mormonism with has at least 10,000 members worldwide; Warren took over the community in 1998. Furthermore, 56 of the girls were each other’s sisters and 24 were under the age of 17. DNA evidence presented during the trial showed that Jeffs had fathered a child with a 15 year old child bride. Jeffs also raped one of his nephews when he was 5 and a niece when she was 7. Another photograph showed Jeffs holding and passionately kissing an underage female church member; still another showed a bed where ritual sex sessions were carried out in front of a church audience (a special seat was placed for someone to record the sexual acts).
Explicit audio recordings containing sexual instructions, which helped secure Jeffs’ conviction, were played during the trial. A 90-minute segment detailed how the young brides should become “so natural as clothed as unclothed” and always shower before getting near Jeffs. A 20 minute audiotape started and ended with a man saying a prayer before sexually assaulting the 12-year-old in front of three other of his wives. A graphic 10 minute tape revealed Jeffs giving the young girls detailed pointers and softly telling five girls to ‘set aside all your inhibitions.’ The other tapes revealed Jeffs instructing his young wives how to please him sexually during “heavenly” or “celestial” sessions and they would be “rejected by God” if they did not comply; Jeffs telling the girls that by complying they help atone for the sins of their community; Jeffs telling the girls they ‘need to be excited’; Jeffs instructing his wives that they must ‘work together’ to please him sexually; Jeffs can be heard sexually assaulting a 12 year old; Jeffs can be heard having sex with all the girls at the same time (in a 2004 audiotape); and Jeffs instructing the women on how to maintain their pubic hair and a woman is heard showing the other wives how to properly shave their armpits (Bentley).
Three of Jeffs’ wives were said to have held down the 12 year old victim while Jeffs raped her. One of the girls bound the child’s arms and legs to stop her moving, tapes seized revealed
* Wilbert Regacho, 20, under the influence of alcohol and illegal drugs, entered his neighbor’s home in Purok Bangrus, Barangay 1 in Purok Bangrus, Barangay 1, Bacolod City on October 31, 2012 and got inside the mosquito net of female siblings, aged 17 and 13, but was punched on the eyes by grandmother Carmen Terrano, who was awakened because of the noise, when she confronted him before stabbing the teenagers whom he tried to rape. Juvy Bustamante, the mother, tried to run after the suspect when he tried to escape but was also stabbed (“‘Drugged’ Suspect”).
* A woman, 31, a resident of San Carlos City and married to a 42-year-old German national, was kidnapped on July 18, 2012 and held captive for 8 days by Gilbert Escuadro, 34, also of San Carlos, first at a house and later at Skyland Hotel, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. Escuadro had beaten, strangled her, tied up and forced her to have sex with him twice a day. He had been habitually abducting her for two years. Bacolod National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents rescued the woman, arrested Escuadro, and charged him with kidnapping, serious illegal detention and multiple rape (Dangcalan “NBI Rescues Woman”) .
* A woman, 23, bit off a man’s penis after he tried to force her to perform oral sex on him in June 2008 in Heidelberg, Germany (“Heidelberg Woman”).
* A woman, 23, was lured into a hotel room by a female gang associate, Jolean Disbrow, 23, at a party on February 23, 2006, where she was gang raped over a 7 hour period because her boyfriend had “angered” members of an Anaheim gang in California, USA. Seven gang members and three female associates were arrested and then charged on April 3, 2006. Connie Herrera Retana, 38, the mother of one one of the suspects, Martin Carlos Delgado, 18, watched and encouraged the assault on the woman. Arrested were Jesse Bess, 23, Randy Calderon, 18, Keizzy Fierro, 22, Adrian Flores, 18, Raymond Jaramillo, 19, Luis Nava, 19, and Gilbert Ortiz, 15, along with Retana, Delgado and Disbrow. Oscar Jose “Sporty” Barajas, 19, remained at large as of press time. Each perpetrator was charged with four counts of forcible rape in concert and also faced one count of false imprisonment by violence, forcible oral copulation and forcible sexual penetration by a foreign object by force. All but Fierro were charged with dissuading a witness from reporting a crime and criminal street gang activity. Fierro and two others were charged with receiving stolen property, the victim’s car. Delgado was charged with one count of unlawful taking of a vehicle. The perpetrator, if convicted, may get a maximum penalty of 52 years to life to 184 years to life (“Police: Mom Watched”).
* A woman was left alone with a man after the truck carrying her and four other people broke down on a rural road in Alberta, Canada. While the others went for help, the man struck her, resulting to a broken jaw, and tried to sexually assault her but she fled into the wilderness, where she got lost for 12 days and survived by drinking river water and foraging for berries (Quinn).
