A mean father has been sent to jail after he forced his daughter to marry the man who raped her.
Mirror gathered that a father, in Idaho, in the US, has been arrested and sent to jail for forcing his pregnant 14-year-old daughter to marry the 24-year-old man, Adam Seaton who brutally raped her.
The mean father took his daughter and her attacker more than 1,000 miles to Missouri, where teens under 15 are allowed to get married with parental consent in “special circumstances”, like pregnancy.
However, he was later arrested and charged to court for forcing his daughter to marry the wicked man who raped her.
In a shocking outburst he told the judge: ”If you get them pregnant then you marry them.”
On the other hand, Adam, who is now 25, confessed to the rape in April.
He is now serving a 15-year prison sentence, with sex offender treatment and substance abuse treatment.
The girl’s father’s lawyer, while defending his client said that the man might have done what he did out of a “religious motivation”.
“[The victim] told me herself that her father asked her several times during the trip to Missouri, and even the day of the marriage, if it was something she wanted to do,” the lawyer added.

Fortunately for the girl, she later lost the pregnancy in a miscarriage.
The victim’s father was said to have “harbored and protected” a criminal by allowing the rapist to live with his teenage daughter.
But he told the court: ”I love my daughter very much and I would never do anything to intentionally harm her or put her in harm’s way. I made the wrong decision, and I made that decision in duress.”
He was ordered to serve a suspended prison term of 4-years, and 120-days in a county jail.
Speaking in the court, the judge told him: “While you spend those 120-days in jail, perhaps you will think about the 120-days your daughter was in a vile farce of a marriage to a rapist.”
