This Dad Murdered The Man Who Raped His Daughter, And Now He's Going To Prison For 40 Years
An Alabama father has been sentenced to 40 years behind bars for murdering the man who sexually abused his daughter for several years.
Between the ages of 4 and 9, Julia Maynor, now 24, was repeatedly raped by her maternal grandfather, Raymond Brooks.
According to Chron, Brooks ultimately served 27 months of a five-year sentence for molesting his granddaughter as a child.
"Raymond molested me for either four or five years," Julia Maynor told Alabama News. "I don't remember when it started happening but I know it was for a very long time. It was long enough for me to think it was completely normal and made me to feel that he actually loves me in a different kind of way than my mother and father loves me."
Maynor explained that sometime in 2014, she was talking with her father and mentioned something about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her grandfather.
Although she cannot remember what she said now, Maynor told Alabama News that it was enough to spark a rage so strong in her father that he suddenly snapped, drove over to her grandfather’s house, and shot him.
While driving in a rage to Brooks’ house, Julia Maynor’s father, Jay Maynor, also reportedly fired shots into a convenience store when he spotted another man who had allegedly been abusive to his stepdaughter.
Maynor ended up accepting a plea deal so Julia wouldn’t have to testify in court and relive the horrific abuse she suffered as a child.
"Basically he took it so that I didn't have to relive the molestation and also be on the stand in front of a bunch of people talking about and bringing back memories of the molestation," she told WVTM. "My father was protecting me, like a father should do. He is an amazing father — actually the best. He loves us so much."
Julia now says her father’s sentence is extremely unfair, and she has waived her right to anonymity to tell her story.
"I'm going through hell," Julia Maynor told Alabama News. "Everything comes back to me as to why this has happened. I feel like it's my fault. I'm sad but yet mad."
