A woman of the United Kingdom, cut off all ties with her mother after she allowed her husband to rape her two young daughters.
The man was arrested after his older step daughter learned that she was infected with HIV.
The man raped his two stepdaughters when they were 11 and 14 years old, and infected them both with HIV.
The stepfather has since developed full-blown AIDS.
The 60-year-old stepfather had initially denied the allegations, but has since pleaded guilty to a series of sexual offenses at the Canterbury Crown Court.
One of the step daughters, now 22, said that she only learned that she has HIV after giving birth to her baby boy.
The woman worried that her younger sister, who had been removed from the family home, had suffered the same fate, and tests confirmed her fears as her younger sister was also found to have been infected with HIV.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said that the abuse began a few months after their mother moved the man into their home.
He started bribing them with clothes, a phone and cash. He then forced himself onto the girls and raped them.
He made excuses for why he needed to sleep in the same bed as the older girl, and told their mother to sleep with the younger sister in case she has nightmares.
The abuse resulted in the older girl getting pregnant, but he forced her to have an abortion. Social services visited the house, but interviews were conducted in front of the abuser, causing her to hide the truth.
Years later, she was happy to welcome her new baby with her boyfriend until the devastating news that he had contracted HIV, and her “world collapsed.”
“I felt dirty, disgusting and inhumane,” she said.
The brave woman reported the abuse to the police, leading to the man’s arrest and guilty plea. She now cut all ties with her mother, saying that she told her about the abuse and she refused to believe her.
Her younger sister lives with foster parents.
