“Be careful what judges you elect,” the father of the girl, who was only 14 years old when she was assaulted by convicted rapist Eli Binnion, told KRIV-TV.
Despite recommendations by prosecutors that Binnion be sentenced to 15 years in prison, Polk County District Court Judge Travis Kitchens decided to let the rapist go off with only 180 days in jail as part of probation without any prison time, KRIV-TV reported.
“What is the judge telling our children when we try to teach our children to go to the police?” the father told the outlet, asking to remain anonymous. “Let the police handle everything. Let the law do it. That’s what their job is, and then this happens. You get a slap on the wrist.” (RELATED: Police Officer Reportedly Admits To Raping, Kidnapping Woman)
“No victim is gonna want to come forward and go through all of the struggles and all of the ordeal that they have to go through, just for the person to get out and walk free,” he continued.
I tried calling Judge Kitchens’ office to let him know I am personally disgusted by his light sentence. Of course no one answered and I was unable to leave a message. https://t.co/L2s5RS09oz

“I promised my daughter justice,” the father told KRIV-TV, “and obviously I was wrong because the court system is not gonna give it to her.”
The convict allegedly raped the victim at a Hampton Inn in Livingston during an Independence Day gathering in 2018, according to KRIV-TV. Binnion was someone the girl’s father knew for years, the outlet reported.
Polk County District Attorney Lee Hon stressed in a conversation by phone with KRIV-TV that the girl was not a willing underage participant in the encounter. This was, according to Hon, a sexual assault, KRIV-TV reported.

Mother of Girls Allegedly Dumped at Sea by Vengeful Dad Bares Her Anguish

It’s the case that has rocked Spain, sparking protests, triggering an international manhunt, and drawing the attention of the royal family.
A father allegedly drugged and killed his two little girls, put their bodies in duffel bags, and dumped their bodies at sea—all to spite their mother for getting a new boyfriend.
Now, days after the remains of the older child were found off the Canary Islands, her devastated mom is speaking out, saying she hopes the deaths will not be in vain and will lead to more protections for children.
“They are now two angels... teaching a great lesson at the cost of their lives,” Beatriz Zimmermann wrote in an open letter, according to El Periódico.
Last week, it became clear the message was not an empty threat when search crews found Olivia in a bag, and a second empty bag—weighted down by an anchor—thousands of feet below the water’s surface off Tenerife.

The discovery ignited public outrage at every strata of Spanish society.
“I don’t think there is anyone this morning who is not trying to put themselves in the shoes of the people who love these murdered girls,” Queen Letizia said on Friday.
Spain’s equality minister, Irene Montero, tweeted her condolences with the hashtag #Nomasviolenciavicaria—a reference to abusers harming children as a way to cause their parent pain.
It’s not clear what happened to Gimeno, whose boat was found drifting off Tenerife. A judge on Friday issued a new international warrant for his arrest, declaring that the crime was no longer an abduction but a homicide and that Gimeno’s intention was to kill them “in a planned and premeditated fashion to cause his ex-partner inhumane pain.”
In her anguished letter, Zimmerman thanked the public for its support, blasted “the most monstrous act that a person can commit,” and said she wished she had died with them.
“But that couldn’t be because Tomás wanted me to suffer searching for them without rest,” she wrote. “That was the reason why he left me alive.”
