    I am outraged by this story. Whomever wrote the first reply should be ashamed. No one is arrested without probable cause! This woman should have protected these 3 girls instead of her boyfriend. Educated or not this is an a sad situation. I can only hope that the community and extended family can help these young ladies.

      Agreed, clearly this woman is likely covering up the way some abusers are by family members who fail to think that their kin are somehow exempt from possibly doing anything wrong or bad simply because they share the same gene pool…and just because they don’t touch the one, doesn’t mean they wouldn’t anyone else…sex offenders are know for being pardon the expression; “choosey,” for one reason or another..
