34-year-old Arnold Perry, bagged a 27 years jail sentence after found guilty of charges of rape and sexual battery charges. The Ohio man reportedly raped and impregnated 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister, after their Mom allowed him to move in when he had nowhere to live.
The Vindicator reported that the girls were raped and impregnated in 2015 and 2016, and while one of the twins had an abortion, her sisters had babies because their pregnancies were discovered too late to end them.
Assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor Jennifer McLaughlin at Arnold’s sentencing on Thursday in a Youngstown courtroom, disclosed that Arnold committed similar crimes as a juvenile. However Defense attorney, Mark Lavelle, told the court that Arnold suffered a brain injury as a child that prevents him from having feelings about his actions.
Mr. Arnold who apologized for the crimes he committed before his sentencing, said;
“I know now what I did was wrong,” he said. “I wish I could take it back.” The girls’ mother said she is raising two babies, and that Perry’s family isn’t helping her.
Arnold’s sentencing comes few days after Germaine Moore, 44 was charged with sexually abusing three underage girls across two states after a video of one alleged encounter spread across the world via social media.
Moore turned himself in at a police station outside Montgomery, Ala., early Tuesday after his mug shot and name were splashed across news sites and police bulletins as a suspect in the dissemination of the video that has spread as far as France. The video allegedly shows a child performing oral sex on Moore.
Moore reportedly preyed on his nieces while their mother worked, and committed the abuse at his mother’s home in Detroit and his own home in Alabama, and faces 11 felony charges in both Alabama and Michigan, AL.com reported, with potentially more forthcoming.
