A Texas man has been given 2 life sentences and no parole after he raped a child and then took for an abortion after he impregnated her.
The 36-year-old Roy Wayne Jackson Jr. was found guilty of sexually assaulting and impregnating a 12-year-old girl in 1996 and then sexually assaulting and impregnating the girl’s daughter.
According to a report by the Houston Chronicle:
Roy Wayne Jackson Jr. was found guilty of two felony offenses of Continuous Sexual Abuse and Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child in State District Judge Lisa Michalk’s court late last week. The victims names were not released. The assaults spanned a 15-year period, authorities said.
According to investigators, Jackson met the first victim in 1996 when she was a 12-years-old unwed mother with a 3-month-old daughter. That daughter would later grow up and become the second victim. Jackson, then 18, continued the relationship with the first victim for 16 years. He got her pregnant with a son during the first year that they were together. He was also the only “father figure” that the 3-month-old girl would ever know, authorities said.
According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter
Jackson entered the victim’s life back in September, 1996, when he started sexually assaulting the victim’s mother. The victim was just 3 months old, and the victim’s mother was only 12 years old. Jackson was an adult and got the victim’s mother pregnant at age 12. This began a 16 year long relationship between Jackson and the victim’s mother.
Jackson was the only father figure the victim ever knew. However, this relationship changed when the victim turned 8 years old. Jackson began to fixate on the victim, a splitting image of her aging mother. It was when the victim was 8 that Jackson first sexually assaulted her. Jackson made sure no one else was in the home when he carried the victim away from watching cartoons, and into his bedroom. There, he penetrated her sexual organ with his penis, causing the victim to cry tears of pain.
Jackson sexually assaulted the victim in a similar manner, for about once a week, lasting for seven years. The sexual abuse lasted from when the victim was 8 years old to when she was 15 years old.
Jackson sexually assaulted the victim all over East Montgomery County in various homes and motels. Jackson also sexually assaulted the victim at motels in Harris County, and in Liberty County. Jackson was sexually assaulting the victim so much that he forced her to take birth control pills. However, because the victim was a child, she didn’t like taking the pills, and Jackson got the victim pregnant at age 13. Jackson told the victim that she was too young to have his baby and took her to get an abortion.
After aborting the child, Jackson brought the victim back to the doctor to make her take a birth control patch, since the pills failed.
However, Jackson got the victim pregnant a second time when she was 15 years old. This time there would be no abortion.
The abuse was NEVER reported by the doctor or the location where the abortion took place.
According to reports, the victim told her cousin that Jackson was the father of her baby. The victim’s cousin called Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) to report Jackson.
Life Dynamics, Inc., has documented that abortion clinics are not complying with mandatory reporting of sexual abuse victims.
In a report recently uploaded by Life Dynamics, they publish actual criminal cases of abortion clinics failing to report abuse.
According to Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, who wrote the report it is critical that states enforce mandatory reporting laws and prosecute those who fail to report, “it is self-evident that when a minor girl seeks an abortion, she represents a textbook example of why mandatory reporting laws were created in the first place. Despite this, we have consistently found that the law enforcement community is functionally indifferent to the problem of abortion clinics not complying with mandatory reporting statutes even in the face of irrefutable evidence that violations are occurring. Among all the cases we researched – whether they are included in this report or not – we never found one example in which criminal charges were brought against an abortion clinic employee for failing to comply with their state’s mandatory reporting statutes. This was true even when this failure was (a) noted during the investigation and/or trial and (b) was a direct contributor to subsequent assaults on these children. In some cases, the abortion clinics flaunting of these laws even resulted in sexual assaults being committed against other underage girls.”
