“Perhaps the most disturbing thing isn’t that a man of about 50 years old raped and molested a 5-year-old girl – it’s that the girl’s mother saw the assault and spanked the child.
It took three trials to finally convict the woman’s boyfriend, Mr. Warren Fambro, and on Thursday a Fulton County judge sentenced the 57-year-old to life, according to the district attorney’s office.
The incident happened in 2004 when the young girl was left in the man’s care, the district attorney’s spokeswoman Ms. Yvette Brown said Friday.
Mr. Fambro approached the child while she was asleep in her mother’s bed, then raped and molested her, Ms. Brown said.
“The mother, who had just returned home from work, walked in on the attack and spanked her daughter,” Ms. Brown said.
The woman never reported the incident. It was the state Department of Family and Child Services who found out about the incident two years later while monitoring the family for a separate matter.”
