10 MONTH OLD BABY GIRL RAPED SINCE BIRTH BY HER MOTHER AND HER MOTHER’S BOYFRIEND – UPDATED 08.08.2013 – CCA0068
18 MONTH OLD BABY GIRL RAPED SINCE BIRTH BY HER MOTHER AND HER MOTHER’S BOYFRIEND
This case makes me sick to my stomach. A ‘mother’, Melissa Bailey, raped her daughter and allowed her boyfriend, Glenn Nelson, do the same from the day the baby girl was born until she was 18 months old. Had the two not been arrested when they were, who knows how much longer the abuse would have carried on.
Bailey faced charges of sexual battery on a person under the age of 12, lewd and lascivious molestation, lewd and lascivious exhibition, possession of child pornography and use of a child in sexual performance. It turns out that when Bailey was arrested, she actually admitted to raping her daughter, stating that she and Nelson had been raping the baby since the day that she was born. While Bailey was incarcerated, she caused quite the fuss for deputies and needed repeatedly to be restrained, and on a few occasions was even tasered after attempting to bite an officer. Her bond was set at $750,000.00.
Investigators confiscated computers from the home and Nelson’s office. On these computers they discovered child pornography images, including photos of the baby girl, and chat files between Bailey and Nelson discussing having sex with her baby over webcam. While Glenn Nelson was sitting in jail, he admitted that he and Bailey had both fantasized and talked about having sex with a baby, but denied ever having hurt the baby girl. He claimed “It’s all in there all the time about fantasies, not reality that was happening. It was fantasizing and talking about it.” Personally, I think fantasizing about raping a baby is twisted and disturbed, and if I could have it my way, anyone who even entertained the idea of doing so would be sent to prison to learn what rape is really all about. Nelson would later admit to more than fantasizing and admit to performing sex acts numerous times on the baby girl.
The defense for Bailey were attempting to use an insanity defense explaining why this monster raped her daughter. I can’t say I was completely shocked when I heard this, especially given that all the best low lives have given this defense a shot at some point in time. Also, same as with most cases with these low lives, doctors ruled Bailey fit to stand trial. Then the defense began claiming that Bailey had an injury as a child that left her without part of her brain and she was not capable of understanding what was taking place. HA! That’s a new one to me.
Bailey had even been offered a plea deal by the state, but decided to plead not guilty, sending the case to trial. Nelson on the other hand, facing charges of capital sexual battery, lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12 years old and 20 felony counts of possession of child pornography by sex performance by a child, took that plea deal. Bailey would regret not taking that deal, a jury took only two hours to reach a verdict, finding Bailey guilty of all charges. Here’s the best part, the charges Bailey was convicted on, each carry a mandatory life term. There will never be enough justice done for what happened to this baby girl.
At Bailey’s sentencing hearing, her mother, Cynthia Schoolcraft, spoke out begging for leniency for her daughter. “I guarantee my daughter will never ever do something like this again. I’m begging your honor to give my daughter a second chance.” I say lock the fricken mother up as well for being so delusional. Schoolcraft was right about one thing though, Bailey will not ever do anything like this again, because there are no babies to rape in prison. The defense also continued to piss me off when they asked to judge to release Bailey on probation as a sex offender and let her get treatment for her so called “mental illness”. SHE RAPED HER DAUGHTER FOR 18 MONTHS. SHE ALLOWED HER BOYFRIEND TO RAPE HER DAUGHTER FOR 18 MONTHS. How dare these people even suggest letting this woman get away with that? How can they be so nonchalant to an infant being raped? When did society start demanding that criminals get their fair day in court and a defense to protect their civil rights, when it was them who victimized innocent little souls that never had a chance to fight back or speak out for themselves? When are we going to give the victims the same amount of help and power as we are giving their abusers? This needs to stop.
The judge in this case was unsympathetic (and very much rightfully so), and sentenced Bailey to two life sentences. I think we should be able to sentence all sex offenders to being sterilized as well, God knows the last thing the world needs is to have these monsters repeatedly giving birth to their next victims.
The little girl who suffered this horrific abuse, now 4 years old, lives with her father. Thankfully, she has a chance to live her life, without ever being around her mother or her mother’s family again. I can’t imagine the trauma both physically and mentally that was thrust upon this baby girl. Her physical wounds will heal, and I am hoping against all hope, that as she grows up, she doesn’t remember being raped by her own mother and her mother’s boyfriend.
