Medical professionals kept returning teen to abuser -- at least three time, from the look of it


Fugitive in rape kept job teaching (Philadelphia Inquirer, February 14, 2008)

How did Honore keep his job after he was first arrested in 2006 and accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting and sodomizing the teenager from the summer of 2003 through April 2006, when she was 14 through 17?


According to records filed at the courthouse, the birth of the teenager's daughter was the first of four pregnancies during the three years the girl was allegedly beaten, threatened and abused. Authorities said the girl had been living with Honore because of problems at home.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, Honore is accused of forcing her to terminate at least two pregnancies and, during the second, when she was 15, telling her that if she did not have an abortion he would "kick her ass and do it for her."

At the time she reported the crimes, authorities noted she was four months pregnant with another of Honore's children, but court records did not specify whether that child was carried to term.

On Aug. 2, 2006, while police were investigating, Honore allegedly went to her house and threatened to blow it up and kill her, her guardian and the daughter after finding out that the teenager was with another man, the affidavit said.

It would be interesting if they'd do a timeline showing when the pregnancies took place, when the authorities came into the picture, why the girl wasn't removed from this man's clutches when she gave birth to the first child, etc.
