PARENTAL  INCEST

. 

We remember Ebony Franklin, Age 16 - raped and stabbed fifteen (15) times by her father, Rodney James McIntyre - who initially told police that he gave her his own semen in a Turkey Baster because she wanted to become pregnant, then admitted to raping, murdering her, and tossing her body into a dumpster near his place of employment.   May this young Black Sister Rest in Peace  eternally.

 

Incest is illegal in all states in the United States.  The law prohibits sexual relations defined as sexual intercourse, between individuals who are closely related by blood, or adoption. 

 

Incest can range from a one-time occurrence to hundreds of contacts.  It may involve occasional contact or may be compulsive/addictive in nature and occur several times a day.   The average duration of activity is approximately four years.

In addition, most perpetrators are parents, predominately male, and who on the average abuse at more serious and traumatic levels than do female perpetrators. 

 

The perpetrator to ensure the child’s silence and compliance more often uses verbal or implied threats.  The perpetrator may threaten to harm the child,  if the incest is revealed or terminated.
