Two Amish bros who stunningly was allowed to stay out of jail in spite of admitting to raping their sibling– who just recently delivered a new born baby at 13– have been accused of breaking orders to keep away from their sister, court records show.
Missouri prosecutors submitted a movement Friday seeking to revoke probation for Aaron Schwartz, 22, and his 18-year-old brother Petie simply days after news broke of the questionable plea offer giving them a suspended sentence to conserve them being “eaten alive” in prison.
Both were accused of “having contact with the victim of the crime, after signing the sex offender supervision contract that restricted contact with the victim,” the Springfield News-Leader said.
A summons has been provided for both to appear in court Wednesday near their home in Seymour, records show.
The siblings likewise reportedly filed identical hand-written letters with the court– another part of the lenient sentencing that triggered outrage.
“I confess to having had several sexual intercourses with a [female relative] under 14 years of age,” both letters say, according to the News-Leader. “I do regret and am sorry for having done any such sins.”
The Schwartz siblings were initially charged with 6 counts of statutory rape and one count of incest, reduced to third-degree child molestation in the questionable plea offer after they admitted sex with the girl starting when she was 12, the reports stated.
Two other brothers– both minors– are likewise implicated of raping their 12 yr old sister, who gave birth previously this month to a child fathered by one of them, district attorney Ben Berkstresser told the Webster County Citzen. The reports did not say how old the other siblings were, nor if any legal action was taken against them.
The two charged bros were sentenced to 15 years in prison after admitting the lower charges, but the sentences were suspended after Webster County district attorney Berkstresser declared the pedophiles were “immature.”.
“These two young men would’ve been eaten alive in the state prison system,” Berkstresser told the County Citizen in defending his decision.
Along with five years’ probation and the “apology” letter, the brothers were ordered to complete the Missouri Sex Offender Treatment Program as well as 100 hours of community service.
“This won’t be easy for either of them to do, but I’ll assure you they will face the consequences if the program isn’t completed,” Berkstresser previously told the local paper. “And that consequence will be prison.”
