The details of this story is so disturbing that after reading it you’d be impelled to confine your little ones inside the house forever and never let them leave your sight! And we won’t blame you one bit.
Eric Masters have over raped at least five toddlers in five different Michigan state counties between 2011 and 2013. The videos he had taken shows himself engaged in multiple sex acts with girls who were sometimes tied to a bed.
Other videos show him urinating on children, reports revealed. His victims’ ages were as young as ten-months-old.
Overall the investigators found at least 21 videos and images depicting sexual exploitation of a child, federal court documents show.
Although some sexual offenders film their crimes as personal souvenirs, Masters made it a point to share his collection of private videos to other sexual offenders.
During a plea hearing, he admitted to his crimes. He was sentenced to 50 years in prison for sexual exploitation of a child. He was also ordered to pay more than 76 thousand dollars in restitution.
And apparently, this vile behavior runs in the family. Masters’s brother Timothy was last fall sentenced to 27 years in federal prison for assaulting a ten-year-old girl.
“Good night last night,'” said the subject line in Timothy’s email to his younger brother, which included a pornographic image taken of the girl while she slept.
The brothers often bragged to each other their conquests, and regularly discussed sexual abuse of children with carefree nonchalance.
Predator-proof your child
With these easy tips, you can protect your children from the horrors of sexual predators:
- Keep little ones close, not just in view,
- Take them everywhere with you (even the rest room) It doesn’t matter if you have to go to the rest room or the changing room, your little one has to be with you at all times.
- Encourage their curiosity but teach them to be alert. Kids get easily distracted especially when they’re in a new place, so teach them to remain focused even as they explore their surroundings.
