A young lady narrated her ordeal with her biological father in an interview with jaPR.
She narrated how her father dis-virgined her when she was 10-year old and continued until he was reported after she courageously reported him.
“I got disvirgined by my father when I was at the age of 10 years old. The first time it happened I explained to my mom she did not do anything about it. So I was like why did she not do anything about it, I called her that mom, something like this happened, she said it will be fine that she would do something about it. I said okay, well that time I was still small, I think it was normal, so it happened the second time again. That was when I was 10 going to 11 years old. He had sex with me again.
