How heroic is a child that is tortured by his father and yet, instead of telling someone or asking for help, he keeps quiet so he can stay with his siblings! Was he protecting them or were they his only hope?? This story makes me want to cry!
This boy is only 10 years old…he was raped and pimped out by his adopted father. This child was so scared he would be separated from his siblings that he refused to talk to police until police told him that talking would help protect his siblings. At that moment, shaking, the boy broke down and told police he had S..E..X..(spelled it out) with Zwick and Rieder. The boy told police that his father had sex with him 2 to 3 times a week since he had been adopted. OMFG!!! The 2 other boys in the home also told police that their father had been raping them.
The father worked from his home as an insurance adjuster. He had adopted 3 children and was in the process of adopting a fourth (who was already living with him). In his care were a 9 year old girl, and three boys ages 9, 10, & 12. The kids were pulled from school to be home schooled and the neighbors were clueless to what was happening.
You know how this shit was caught….an undercover officer with a sex task force was talking with the dad via Internet when the dad said he would arrange sex with a 10 year old boy!! They arranged to meet at a nearby city McDonald’s but police met this ass hole 2 days earlier than scheduled. I am so thankful it was police the ass wipe was talking to!!
The adoptions were handled through a private agency in Texas.
His father, who’s name has not been released for protection of the children, is 39 years old a youth basketball coach and a long time resident of Troy Ohio. He raped 3 of his adopted children and prostituted one of them to two men, Jason Zwick, 29, and Patrick Rieder, 31. Sick, sick, sick! Police stated that they have found no evidence…yet…of inappropriate behavior with the kids he coached. The FBI is pursuing federal sexual exploitation charges. Adopted pop is being held on a $800,000 bond and charged with one count child rape, 4 counts of complicity to commit child rape based on allegations of sexual assault in Rieders home. Zwick is charged with rape and a $500,000 bond and Rieder is charged with 4 counts of child rape and being held with out bond!
The father and both men are in jail and charged with raping the 10 year old boy, his truck was impounded, 4 lap tops seized, video camera seized, and 2 wooden paddles from the master bed room…seized! All the children have been placed with a relative of the adopted father.
These poor children…i don’t know why they were adopted. They probably thought they were going to a loving home but, instead, they were pimped out by someone that was suppose to love them. My heart goes out to them and their heroics!! I hope they will never be hurt again but I hope the 3 men responsible are tortured for the rest of their prison lives!!
Thanks go to Nadia for the tip.
