Judge Tells Mother There is a Special Place in Hell For Sexually Abusing Her Little Girls

This article is being posted to remind people that some mothers sexually abuse their daughters, and to validate the experiences of my readers who have been sexually abused by their mothers but cannot quite come to to terms with the truth of it because of the image of mothers, and what we were all taught to believe about mothers and their children.

“A Georgia judge held little back Thursday when he berated a woman before sentencing her for her involvement in the molestation of her two young daughters, ages 6 and 8.

Amanda Arellano had just pleaded guilty to charges of rape and aggravated child molestation.


“Ms. Arellano, I don’t know that I have ever said a curse word from this bench,” said Bibb County Superior Court Judge Howard Simms. “But you may be the vilest b***h that I have ever met.”

The judge then spoke of “a special place in hell” for people like Arellano before sentencing her to 30 years in prison and lifetime probation as a sex offender.

The sordid details of Arellano’s case had just been outlined in court hours before. The Telegraph of Macon, Georgia, reported that many sitting in the courtroom were moved to tears while hearing the graphic details of what the girls had endured.

Prosecutors alleged that Arellano, 29, and her 30-year-old boyfriend, Daniel Kelly Copeland, had incorporated Arellano’s daughters “into their sexual behaviors as a couple.”

The girls’ mother, prosecutors said, admitted to participating in sex acts with Copeland and the two girls. The alleged acts occurred in the latter half of 2011.

Authorities said that Arellano forced the girls to watch the couple having sex and then later helped at least one daughter perform sex acts on Copeland. At one point, it is alleged, Arellano held one of her daughters down while Copeland had sex with the girl.

During one of the encounters, Arellano reportedly told one of the girls, “This is how men show you they love you.”

“I almost had to get up and walk out,” said one bailiff who was in the courtroom at the time the details were recounted.

Chief Assistant District Attorney Nancy Scott Malcor said she decided to accept Arellano’s plea in order to spare the girls from having to relive the abuse and testify in court during a trial.

“These girls have been through enough,” Malcor said.

Copeland, for his part in the crime, was sentenced to 25 years in prison last year after he pleaded guilty to rape and four counts of aggravated child molestation, according to the Albany Herald.

The case came to light after Copeland’s father went to authorities in early 2012. Copeland had admitted to his dad previously that he and Arellano had started involving the girls in their sex life.

When questioned by authorities, Copeland reportedly admitted that he and Arellano had started taking drugs that made them feel “especially sexual” and started performing sex acts in front of the children. Malcor, who also prosecuted Copeland, said the girls’ mother then began having them perform sex acts on her boyfriend. Malcor said it became an “every night thing.”

    I find that in my own story of my abuse and those of many of my clients, drugs were used with out exception. Sometimes it starts with beer or harder booze, put into baby bottles, as a lot of my clients had abuse start as babies. What ever the drug of choice is, for the parents, is what they use on the child.. Doctor’s and Dentist will often drug and molest a person while they are out in a drugged state, this is often one of the reasons’, many have a harder time recovery the memories or the details of abuse memories. Women rape and molest. I find that is why women let there husbands rape their children, because they are raping them, too. Melissa Lee

      Thank you for your honesty Melissa Lee. I know of many cases where some kind of drug was used on the child. It’s one of the reasons that Frank Fitzpatrick took so long to remember being raped by Father Porter.

    I’ll bet that they gave the drugs to the little girls also.

    He said that it was an “every night thing.”

    I hope those little victims find recovery.

    Good post, Alethea. Good to finally read of a judge who takes a woman’s sexual abuse of children seriously rather than ignoring or trivialising it. Hopefully other judges and officials will follow his lead.

    They should both be sent to prison for life! At least the judge did all that he could. People like these should never see the light of day and if more of them were sentenced to life, they may think a little before becoming such f* n monsters! Rot in hell I hope that there is a special place in hell for them. I applaud this judge!

    • Alethea says:

      Shana, I am pretty freaked out that they used some drug to enhance their sexual feelings and decided to go for it in front of the children.

      Is this kind of drug a new craze? What’s it called? Anyone know? I am so concerned for children. God knows how common this must be if this drug is widely used by parents.
