(Jeffrey York)

(…) Authorities began investigating in December, when York’s wife called 911 to report a sexual offense, Detective Dan Boerner said. When detectives arrived, she told them she and her seven children wanted to leave the home. Family members accused York of abusing them mentally and physically for more than a decade, Boerner said.

(…)

York locked one child in a tiny room for a year, Boerner said, letting the child out periodically to go to the restroom.”In general, meals were brought to this child. Access to clothing, the restroom and everything was restricted by Mr. York,” Boerner said.

A grand jury has indicted York on charges that include two counts of rape involving a female under the age of 13, five instances of gross sexual imposition and six counts of child endangering, WJW reported. York has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

    Dear “Get the facts right,”

    A grand jury has indicted York, so certainly there is some evidence other than just the wife’s story.

    If she was having mental health issues, it does not discredit her story. People with mental health problems often marry other people with mental health problems. Mentally healthy people don’t stay married to child abusers for ten years before reporting the crime.

    So what if the wife accused her own mother and sister of molesting the girl? Women who sexually abuse children is not as uncommon as people think it is. And… if incest existed within the family dynamics then, there is an excellent chance that there were several people abuing several children. In addition, women who were sexually abused as children often marry men who will sexually abuse their children. It’s also possible that the wife was sexually abused by the mother, and or, sister as a child and she is making a transferrence.

    The CNN report also stated that other family members accused the father of abusing them mentally and physically for more than a decade. Children rarely lie about sexual abuse, especially by a parent.

    Detectives who have been working on the case said the investigation has been very difficult for them to handle. This doesn’t happen unless some of the allegations are true.

    What you call “fiction” was taken from CNN, take your gripe up with them.

  2. Get the facts right says:

    York had a job where he was gone from home for 10 to 12 hours a day. The wife was PPD and suffered from emotional and mental health issues. There are claims being made with this story that are simply not true. Quite reporting on fiction. Did you know the wife accused her own mother and sister of molesting the girl at about the same timeframe? That doesn’t make you suspect of this whole thing?
