Man Sentenced For Sexual Abuse Of Daughter [Judge: "Most Heinous Case Of Child Abuse"]
LA Times ^ | April 17, 2009

Posted on 04/17/2009 5:41:55 PM PDT by Steelfish

Man sentenced for sexual abuse of daughter April 17, 2009

The emergency call came in as a domestic violence assault: A man had stabbed his girlfriend in the parking lot of a Las Vegas hospital.

But as detectives began to investigate, they unearthed a terrible family secret. The suspect was not the victim’s boyfriend but her father, who had been sexually assaulting her for nearly two decades and had fathered her three children.

The assaults, the victim told authorities, started when she was 6 years old and living in Los Angeles. She said her father, a martial arts instructor, threatened to kill her if she told anyone and kept her a prisoner at home, monitoring her movements using surveillance cameras and delivering fierce beatings during paranoid rages.

Today, the daughter, now 29, sat silently in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom as a judge sentenced Lindolfo Thibes to prison for 109 years to life in what police describe as the most heinous case of child abuse they have encountered.

As her father was led away in handcuffs, the woman wept quietly and embraced her younger brother, also the victim of years of beatings at the hands of their father. “I hope he suffers,” said the woman, who asked that her name not be published because she is a sexual abuse victim. “I want him to die in there in jail because that’s what he did to me. He confined me.”

Thibes, a burly man with a shaved head and scraggly gray goatee, said nothing about his guilt or innocence during today's hearing but offered a litany of rambling complaints to the judge, all the while referring to himself in the third person.

What an awful life. How do you ever get over or at least go on with a past like that.

Brother, 3 children, no sign of a Mother? What do they do now? No answers I know.

What is a “Lindolfo Thibes?” More illegal alien sex crimes? This piece of garbage needs the electric chair.

Thank God for a judge who gets it.

I hope that the inmates at whatever prison this piece of trash ends up in give him the welcome he deserves.

Prayers for the innocents involved. I hope they find peace and a sense of justice.

"My heart breaks for her, just breaks."

As does mine, but it breaks more for those 3 children. Just imagine growing up and then finding out that the person who was your father is also your grandfather and he had raped your mother.

Story says the victim was an illegal alien from Brazil. Presumably her hideous excuse of a father was too.

Too bad he's a martial arts instructor., he just might be able to fend for himself. I think he ought to ride the lightning.

It makes me sick to realize how many cases there are of father/daughter rape. This one was recent in my area. He filmed the rape of his 10 yr old daughter and then put it on the internet. It is said the be the most downloaded porn video and there is no way it can ever be removed.

It would be awful but being raped by your own father seems to me worse than just knowing that it happened to someone else, even it it was your mother. Remember that it started when she was only six years old. She never got to be a child.

I remember years ago when I heard the figures for how much money child porn made and I just could not imagine that enough people would be that warped that a business like that could literally be a billions-of-dollars a year business.

And then it really scared me to think that these people are often, as Ann Rule once titled her book about Ted Bundy, “the stranger beside me” and that we do not know people at all, at all. We think we do, but we don’t.

Oh, I do pray that many Bubbas make this man’s life miserable for YEARS, and beat him every day for the rest of his life.

Absent a death sentence, I can live with that.

I went to his daughter’s website. What a beautiful and strong spirit that girl has and what a monster she got for a father.

As the Bible says, only God knows the depths of man’s depravity.

I'm all against illegals, but a special exception on compassionate grounds needs to be made here.

Today I heard an PSA regarding donating organs. There is not enough publicity regarding living wills and notes on drivers licenses regarding organ donations.

Instead of life in prison, the person should surrender his organs to those who would benefit. Once the heart lungs, kidneys, eyes and teeth have been harvested the person would be set free!

Could you provide the URL to his daughter’s website? This is an unspeakable and heinous offense.

Yup. Illegal aliens from Brazil. Thanks for confirming what I expected.

Was he an illegal alien in the “third person?”

Apparently he is an illegal from Brazil. Poor woman. The case in Austria was even worse but this was almost as horrific. Taxpayers have been and will be paying for this disaster.

I agree but a few big ol’ bubba’s pouncing on him at once might just take the wind out of those martial arts sails.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

I know you meant well and it's a wonderful suggestion, BUT

Would you want the organs of an evil man to be in your body? We do not know if there would be a transference of characteristics...
Yet, the person who does need new organs may reject that man's organs even though they may be medically compatible.

Sick piece of crap deserve the worst he gets. But why did the paper have to say he had a “scraggly” beard? It isn’t “scraggly” but is full and well-trimmed.

Did the L.A. Times think that if it said “scraggly” people would hate him more?

She really is a strong person. Like I said before it is hard to believe how many fathers, uncles, etc, commit rape/incest on their family members.

Not only is it hard to believe, it is completely hard to even fathom. It’s just gross and perverse in so many ways. Like there aren’t enough females elsewhere???

Of course, when one considers that men rape infants and toddlers, there is just no way for our normal minds to even try and comprehend and, frankly, I hope I NEVER get it.

hmmm....I doubt it has anything to do with availability of females.

And when you’re talking about bizarre abnormal perverse behavior - well, in that kind of individual’s mind, the more bizarre the better.

So - he gets to have total control, he enjoys being perverse.

In the old days they used to call this “evil”.

That’s the point I was trying to make as well - there is NO lack of females so obviously it IS something else.

It still is called evil by those of us who haven’t caved into the PC and humanist belief system.
