A mother and father have been jailed after they repeatedly raped their own 12-year-old daughter saying ‘better us than some maniac’. The girl’s mother, identified only as Olga A, made the statement to police causing shock across the world.
She’s now been sent to a strict regime penal colony in Russia for 15 years while her husband has been jailed for 17 years. They forced their daughter to take part in threesomes to ‘train’ her for adult life and her mother tortured here with a sex toy. Oksana Cheredina, senior assistant to the state prosecutor in Volgograd, said: ‘It was proved in court that parents had sexual orgies with the schoolgirl from December 2016 to March 2017.
‘The girl did not tell anyone what was happening [because] she was afraid of the reaction of her father and mother.’ The girl is now undergoing rehabilitation after being put into care more than a year ago when the case came to light.
Natalia Kunitskaya, an official with the Russian Investigative Committee, said: ‘Psychological and psychiatric analysis conducted in the course of the investigation unambiguously established that both parents were of sane mind.’ They ‘fully comprehended their actions while committing their extremely serious crimes against their own child’. Law enforcement sources say the couple turned their daughter into their ‘sex slave’. The father is accused of raping the girl – often with the mother in the same bed – ‘every other day’. The girl’s horrific ordeal came to light after she went to a doctor with ‘problems concerning her periods’ and they discovered she was not a virgin.
The parents confessed to what had happened and as they believed ‘it was better for the child to lose her virginity with her own father’ than learn details of sexual life in other ways. The girl’s grandmother and great grandmother lived in the same flat but said they had no idea about the sexual abuse, police said. Despite her ordeal she was seen as high-flying student at school. After their arrest the girl posted a picture of herself and her mother with the words: ‘I love you.’ Angry Russians had demanded tougher penalties for the couple – including castration.
