An old Montana man was just handed the worst news of his life after his incestuous rape secrets came out. Unfortunately for the pervert who decided to victimize an 11-year-old relative for months, even police were horrified to learn the man’s sick “foreplay” – and now, he’s got 100 long years behind bars because of it.
It all started on May 17th when a woman called police accusing Theodore Slate, a 70-year-old man who lives in Havre, of raping her younger sister. Come to find out, the man had a disturbing past life with sexual abuse and when the woman saw her sister behaving strangely, she decided to ask a few questions, Billings Gazette reports.
According to police documents, the woman said she asked her sister if there had been any abuse by Slate after starting to see signs of sexual abuse in her. Much to her surprise, the 11-year-old girl spilled the beans, saying Slate had shown her his genitalia and asked her to touch him in various ways.
Unfortunately, that’s not even the worst of it as police brought the man in for questioning only to learn that the situation was exponentially more sinister. Come to find out, the assault had been going on for months – and even police would be left horrified to learn of the man’s sick “foreplay.”
In order to introduce the girl to sex, Slate first started by masturbating in front of the girl, but it would only get more disturbing from there. Eventually, he was showing the girl all sorts of pornography in hopes of “getting her in the mood” before raping her, Havre Daily News explains.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Slate then transitioned into creating and distributing child pornography himself. Police say that just after showing the girl a hefty dose of porn, he would turn on a webcam and stream the vile acts of incestuous rape online for other disgusting perverts to watch.
Most recently, a hearing was held in regards of how to progress with Slate’s case, resulting in the rapist learning that he was in for a bit more than he bargained. Although a psychologist categorized Theodore Slate as a Tier I sexual risk offender, suggesting that he was suitable for community treatment, the judge wasn’t about to let the deviant get off that easy.
In fact, District Court Judge Greg Pinski referred to Slate as “repugnant” and “abhorrent” before sentencing the man to 100 years behind bars. Saying that the offenses were too serious for the minimum sentence, he also remanded Slate behind bars without bail in order to ensure that he wouldn’t run before facing justice.
Unfortunately for Slate, his sentence means that he will not be eligible for parole for 25 years, meaning that he’d be 95 by then or, more likely, dead. It just goes to show, although there are some extremely depraved and sinister people in the world, there are also those who won’t make excuses for the evil of the world, and they know that the only way to keep society safe is to lock monsters like this away forever, just like this judge did with Slate.
