Man arrested for raping a 13-year-old at Church - BUT that's just the beginning.By: Martel Sharpe
A Florida man is being accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at a church funeral service.
The alleged rape took place in April 2016, Andre Brown is being accused of taking a girl he knew into a church bathroom to rape her. The girl says that he grabbed her by her arm, took her into the bathroom, and locked the door. She never told anyone because she was afraid of being blamed for the whole incident.
In July she was taken to a doctor under suspicion that she might be pregnant. The doctor confirmed her pregnancy and the girl finally revealed that she was raped, and named Andre as her aggressor. Andre was taken into custody this week after the child was birthed. A DNA test confirmed that he is the father. He’s currently being held without bail on one count of sexual assault of a victim between 12 and 18 years old. He still denies all charges.
This is a very unfortunate situation and it’s no one’s fault but Andre’s, however some questions do need to be answered such as where was the girl’s mother or guardian. Funerals are about family and friend’s coming together so nobody could have seen this coming, but you still keep your eyes on you child. On the other hand, predators like Andre only need a small window of opportunity and normally they’re quite skilled at preying on victims without anyone noticing.
The worst part is that the girl didn’t ask for any of this. She didn’t choose to have sex or to get pregnant. Now she’s a single under aged mother, who has to take care of a child all because someone else decided to take advantage of her. Hopefully, she’s able to take care of her newborn child and go on to fulfill all of her dreams and aspirations.
