(Scroll down for video) A father said that he believed he was doing the right thing by marrying off his young daughter to the man who got her pregnant.

The father of Idaho, took his 14-year-old daughter across state lines to marry her off to her 24-year-old rapist, Aaron Seaton of Missouri.

Keith Strawn was sentenced to four months in prison after telling the judge that he believed that “if you get them pregnant then you marry them.”

Strawn was originally charged with two felony injury to a child charges and accessory to rape. However, as part of a plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to one felony injury to a child charge.

Strawn’s lawyer had asked the judge for a light sentence, saying that his client’s actions could have been motivated by religion.

Strawn was sentenced to 4 months in prison. During sentencing, District Judge Greg Moeller said: “While you spend 120 day in jail, perhaps you will think about the 120 days your daughter was in a vile farce of a marriage to a rapist.”

The girl miscarried the baby and is now working on having her marriage to her rapist annulled.

Seaton, who pleading guilty to rape, was sentenced to 15 year in prison.
