Man Jailed For Having Two Children With His Niece

A man has been jailed for having a sexual relationship with his niece which produced two children in an "appalling and sad" incest case.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was discovered to be both the father and great-uncle of the two children who are now in care, Hull Crown Court heard.
He had been in a sexual relationship with his niece which began when she was a child and continued into her adulthood.
Both admitted charges of sexual activity with an adult relative, knowing the relationship.
The man was jailed for four and a half years.
DNA tests confirmed the man was both father and great-uncle of the children.
Nigel Clive, prosecuting, told the court the case came to light as a result of social services dealings with the family.
They notified police when they realised the relationship between family members and DNA tests confirmed the man was the biological father.
Charlotte Baines, defending the man, told the court although he had not been "intellectually assessed" he struggled to follow "the intricacies of court proceedings".
David Godfrey, for the niece, said: "The consequences of that action is that the children who she adores, who she loves dearly, are no longer in her care.
"The author of the pre-sentence report is sure she has suffered."
Judge Jeremy Richardson QC said: "This is an appalling and sad case in equal measure.
"I approach my task this afternoon with a sense of compassion coupled with reality.
He said the man had an "acutely deprived upbringing" and told him: "You were in every sense the product of a comprehensively dysfunctional family.
"This led you into an utterly disordered life in relation to your own family.
The man must sign the s*x offenders register for life.
The niece was sentenced to a community order featuring 12 months supervision.
The judge told her she was "as much sinned against as sinning".

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed.

He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
