A West Virginia father was arrested after he committed incest against his 11 year old daughter and then had the baby aborted.
West Virginia State Police say the parents consented to the abortion and the abortion clinic didn’t report the abortion to authorities.
Michael and Amanda Adkins were arrested on charges of child neglect causing the risk of injury. While some licensed medical professionals were involved in getting information to authorities, WSAZ-TV indicates the abortion clinic in Charleston that did an abortion did not report the clear case of statutory rape.
Michael Joe Adkins was charged with with incest, first-degree sexual assault and sexual abuse by a parent for alleged intercourse with his daughter, which impregnated the girl as the sexual activity continued after she became 12.
He and the girl’s stepmother, Amanda Rea Adkins, also faced counts of child neglect creating risk of injury and conspiracy as part of an abortion and subsequent procedure aimed at covering up the alleged incest.
The multiple molestations on the girl took place between October 2010 and February 2011 and then took the girl for an abortion after the incest impregnated her on March 1. They then subsequently got her a D&C on March 16.
In a bizarre turn of events, Adkins was placed on probation.
Cabell Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell, honoring a plea deal reached between assistant prosecutor Kellie Neal and defense attorney Connor Robertson, placed Michael Joe Adkins, of Ona, on five years’ probation and 50 years of supervision after his probation is completed.
Adkins had entered a Kennedy plea in September 2015 to incest with a young girl. A Kennedy plea allows a conviction without the defendant admitting guilt or explaining his role in a crime. He will also have to register as a sex offender and take specialized classes and therapy as part of the deal.
While Robertson argued against the additional 50 years of supervision, which will start after Adkins’ probation period, Farrell insisted on the maximum allowed by statute.
“I’m just going to be blunt: I hope you screw up during those 50 years so I can send you to prison,” he said. “If you violate any of the terms and conditions in the next 50 years, then the court can send you to prison – and I’m hoping that’s the case, because you should go to prison for what you did.”
