As I’ve Tweeted, this is beyond heinous, and the obvious question here is how was this man allowed to be anywhere near the teen after the rape? (

Richard Stephson, 55, is in jail and facing multiple charges after what investigators describe as years of abuse. Authorities said the incident started in the mid 80s when Stephson began sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl who was staying with him at his Springfield home. Soon, police learned that the teen was pregnant with his child.

Now, 10 years after his daughter was born, authorities said Stephson offered her money to have sex with him and molested her during family visits.

He has pleaded not guilty, but has confessed to committing the acts in an interview.
