An 18-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl who claims her father sexually abused her for seven years told a British court late last month that she was drugged, bound, blindfolded and gang raped by her father and a group of his friends when she was 16-years-old, The Jewish Chronicle reported.
The girl told the court that on two separate occasions her father tied her hands together, blindfolded her, and drove her to an unknown location where six or seven men assaulted, raped and sexually tortured her.
Large clips were allegedly attached to her breasts and electric shocks were administered through them. Once, the men also allegedly assaulted her with a live snake.
“They put a snake on my body, I could feel there was a snake,” she said in a video played in court.
On another occasion, she said she was ordered to perform sex acts on a woman. The girl said she refused to do it and started “kicking and screaming.”
She told the court that over the seven years her father allegedly sexually abused her, she was beaten if she resisted his advances and that she eventually became compliant.
“After a bit I felt mentally owned by them, they didn’t have to force me, they would just tell me and I would listen.”
The girl says the abuse began with her father forcing her to take showers with him when she was 10-years-old.
The alleged sexual abuse allegedly escalated to rape when she was 14-years-old.
Then, when she was 16-years-old, her father allegedly started to prostitute her to family friends – including to a man who was also the father of one of the girl’s school classmates and a hasidic man who allegedly worked with her father.
This allegedly began with a gang rape at her classmate’s father’s home on a Shabbat evening where all three men – her father, her classmate’s father, and the hasidic man all raped her.
The girl allegedly did not tell anyone about the abuse because, the prosecution said, her father threatened to sell her into sex slavery, and he also allegedly threatened to kill certain family members if she talked.
According to the Jewish Chronicle, the girl “first made allegations of abuse in 2011 at school, but she revealed its full extent to a visiting rabbi in 2012.”
From that Jewish Chronicle report, is unclear when police were contacted and who made that contact.
The girl’s father is charged with three counts of rape, two counts of conspiracy to rape, and perverting the course of justice for allegedly offering £1,000 (about $1,500) to an acquaintance of the girl to convince the girl not to press charges.
The father’s attorney claims the girl invented the allegations after watching pornography on her laptop computer.
He also said that teachers at her school believed the girl was an “attention seeker.”
Update 5:00 pm –The Jewish Chronicle later reported that defendant is a convicted serial child molester:
Update 7-25-2013 – After deliberating for just five minutes, the jury acquitted the father and his friend. Read why they did here.
The Orthodox Jewish man accused of leading the gang rape of his teenage daughter is a convicted paedophile, who was found guilty in April of sexual offences against his two young stepdaughters.
The revelation came at Wood Green Crown Court, where the man is being tried for various sexual offences against his daughter, including rape and conspiracy to rape.
