|James Hunt and Hazell Bethany during happier times|
A teenager of the United Kingdom, seems to be proud of his rapist father, and he wanted to become just like him.
A 15-year-old girl fell in love with a 16-year-old boy, and the two dated for a while.
During that time, the boyfriend became abusive and forcefully had sex with the girl against her will, and got her pregnant.
Hazell Bethany of Portsmouth, was sexually assaulted by James Hunt, whose father, Neil Hunt, 47, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for raping a woman on the street.
Bethany said that James had outbursts during which he became violent towards her, but he would later apologize and buy her gifts in order to win her back.
James, who worked at a supermarket, bragged that he was copying his rapist father, the victim said. “Dad did it so I have done it now,” James told Bethany.
James was arrested for raping Bethany three times, after he raped another woman and bragged about his crimes to a friend.
James was 18 years old when he was sentenced to 8 years in prison for the rapes.
At the age of 12, James watched the trial of his father at the Winchester Crown Court, which was broadcasted on television.
The jury heard how Neil Hunt jumped out of his car, threw a woman to the ground and violently raped her before driving home and getting into bed with his wife Heather, who is the mother of James.
Sadly, the boy saw his father as a hero and he copied his actions, which landed him in jail just like his father.
The incident came to light recently after Heather, who has forgiven her son, decided that she wants to be part of her granddaughter's life.
However, a judge denied her request after learning that Heather was secretly sending photos that she received of the little girl to James in prison.
He then wrote a letter to Bethany, begging to see her daughter, who was born as a result of the rape.
Bethany, who is raising her daughter with the help of her parents, said she has suffered from post-natal depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since her abusive relationship with Hunt.
