A 47-year-old man has been charged with raping a 14-year-old Houston-area girl who investigators say told a doctor she was his wife and they were having sex.
Fort Bend County jail records Steven Carty was being held Thursday on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child, with bond at $100,000. The girls 39-year-old mother was charged with endangering a child by criminal negligence, with bond at $10,000.

Carty is a Hebrew Israelite.
"Members usually dress in colorful clothing, refrain from birth control and also believe in polygamy. There are several meeting places for Hebrew Israelites across Texas including in El Paso, Houston and Dallas.
Their spiritual leader, Ben Ammi Ben Israel, died in Israel in 2014. He believed that some African-Americans were descendants of the biblical tribe of Judah and migrated to West Africa after the Jewish Temple was destroyed in A.D. 70 in Jerusalem.
In the 1960s, the leader said he had a vision from the angel Gabriel to return to West Africa. He led a group of people back to Liberia, which became the starting point of the worldwide belief system."
He might call himself a “Hebrew Israelite” whatever that is but he is a heathen cultist.
Whatever he calls himself, he needs to be dead
Try putting the words “so-called wife” in an AP article about Mohammed’s child bride or Ellen Degeneress’ sex partner.
This looks like the same ‘Hebrew Israelites’ that Whitney Houston got mixed up with. There are a few other similar groups. Even the SPLC calls them racists, but maybe because they’re Christian and not because they’re black.
“Gov. Greg Abbott recently signed a law that says the youngest age to legally marry is 16, but only if emancipated from parents.”
What was the age prior to this law?
When was this guy “wed”?
What is the youngest same-sex marriage on record in Texas?
Looking at the current state of US legislation, I kind of think this cult, with its polygamy and child sex, may be considered A-OK by the courts.
It was 14 with parental consent.
Sounds like a registered Democrat.....stay armed folks
Sin is really rampant in the world today.
The devil is having a field day.
The question is, indeed, one of consent. The purpose of guardianship is to protect those incapable from making an informed decision, and parents are the natural guardians of children. This natural guardianship is not absolute, and so there should be some way for a precocious child to become emancipated early, and for the state to intervene when parents demonstrate that their guardianship is suspect.
Having said these things, the law should recognize that extreme differences in age, and that relations such as teacher, coach and pastor are susceptible to abuse, should warrant special attention. Furthermore, what normally is the cost of waiting a year or two until the age of consent is reached? Suspicion should attach to such cases.
Finally, there are physical issues with very young women that must be considered.
Taking all these things into account, usually the best way to hand pedophiles is to incarcerate them with the general population in state prison. Many men who were victimized by pedophiles when they were boys there, and they will know how to deal with the situation.
“The devil is having a field day.”
He’s dancing while he can, because we know the end to his story, when he is cast into the lake of fire prepared by God for him and those who follow him(Revelation 20:10). May that Day come quickly, O Lord.
Wait, wut? Are we talking about the Hebrew Israelites or islam???
these guys believe they are the real Jews and they also believe their ancestors built the pyramids plus created all of civilization.
They used to have a 1 hour radio program in LA early Sat. morning which I listened to while doing chores. It was hilarious.
I think they have a group that hangs out in Times Square dressed in Pharohnic costumes promoting their cause.
Well, the US courts would be most eager to give a blessing to Islamic practices, and Hebrew Israelites would get less preferential treatment.
But, truly, we’ve thrown out the basic standard of one man, one woman. Now there is no standard. I see no legal justification to block polygamy and I think it is just a matter of time before a court says it’s OK. Perhaps the Mormons will get it first — might be an easier “sell”. But Islam will have polygamy in the US soon enough.
And child marriage? Again, I’m not sure how effectively it can be blocked since “freedom of religion” is a trump card for anyone who is not a Christian. If the Koran says child sex is OK, then it’s OK. On the other hand, if the Bible says homosexuality is a sin, then the Bible is hate speech.
Wait for the David Koresh followers to defend this guy. Never understood why “conservatives” would support a rapist like David Koresh.
Nah, not dead ... just “re-married” in prison long enough to celebrate a golden “wedding anniversary”.
The Killer has gotta be in the running.
You're kidding, right?
That "most perfect of all men", mohammad himself, the one who all muslim men want to emulate, married 6 year old Aisha.
Truth be told he didn't fully penetrate her until she was 9.
What a guy.
Louisiana. And he’d already been married himself.
