A man, Lee Kaplan, 51, faces life in prison as he kept six young sisters as sex slaves at his home. These were the daughters of Amish couple Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus. The couple reportedly gifted them to Kaplan after he provided financial help to the family. Kaplan was found living with 12 women and girls.
However, Kaplan denied all the 17 charges including sexual assault and child rape but was convicted by the jury on Tuesday.
He allegedly raped them and the oldest girl aged 18, even bore two of his children, also girls. According to the Mirror, Last year, neighbor Jen Betz called the police and told CNN, “My gut was telling me to confirm what I was thinking. There was no reason why this older – significantly older man, any man, regardless of what they look like – would have this amount of children, all in blue dresses, never outside the house regularly, looking so scared.”
