Viciously Depraved Couple Planned To Have Kids So They Could Sexually Abuse Them

201300003093__1379162905_142.196.156.251Sometimes I read a story that is so unbelievably awful it makes me seriously doubt humankind. This is one of those stories. A Florida couple conceived their children for the sole purpose of fulfilling a perverse dream of the father.  An Orlando Sentinel reporter explains it perfectly; “Jonathan and Sarah Adleta‘s children were doomed to a life of perverse cruelty before they were even born.”

Jonathan Adleta, a former Marine officer, dreamed of the day he could have “daddy-daughter sex.” After Sarah Adleta became pregnant with a daughter, he said he would marry her only if she agreed to let him carry out that desire. When the couple had a son, Sarah Adleta was expected to have sexual encounters with him.

That’s probably one of the most awful things I have ever read – but the story is even worse than that. It outlines a home where a father was so obsessed with having sex with his own daughter, he planned it before she was even born. A mother who admits to being so “afraid to lose him” that she victimized her own children. We’re left with a story of two toddlers who from birth seemingly existed to be tortured by their sick parents.

I look at my beautiful children and I can’t even believe that there are kids out there who have to suffer through this type of torture. The story unravels in the most disturbing of ways - I can’t really even bring myself to retell it. I will mention that she delivered the children to him so the abuse could continue after they were divorced, then found another man on an Internet chat room that was into the same type of scenario – and let him abuse her daughter as well.

Sarah Adleta was offered a plea deal to give up the details of Jonathan’s involvement. He’s facing life in prison, she’s facing only 15 to 30 years. When speaking about these kinds of crimes, there just doesn’t seem to exist a punishment bad enough. I would say I would like them to suffer as much as they made their children suffer – but how is that even possible?

    What the… I can’t…
    There aren’t enough profanities on the internet to express my rage at these monsters.

  • Annie

    Welp. At least he’ll get to relive half of his “daddy” fantasies in prison.

    • Emmali Lucia

      If he even lives long enough…

      The thing is that in most state pens the prisoners love nothing more than getting rid of pedophiles. If they find out what he’s in for he won’t last long.

    • Peggy

      Agree. I’m usually not one for “eye for eye” justice, but in this case….

    • whiteroses

      I’m kind of hoping he lasts for a few dozen years. I mean, yeah, he’s a waste of taxpayer dollars, but the creative ways those inmates could torture him will more than make up for it.

    • Annie

      Here’s the interesting bit: sexual predators are housed either by themselves or with other sexual predators.

    • Emmali Lucia

      Have they changed that recently?

      I remember going to the State pen in a field trip about five or six years ago and they talked about how sexual predators don’t last long, the people who didn’t want to get out for good behaviour would take care of them.

    • Annie

      That’s why they’re kept in protected custody, the cons have a very strict social hierarchy at which sexual predators are at the absolute bottom.

  • meteor_echo

    WHAT. THE. FUCK.
    I need vodka. This is beyond repulsive.

    • whiteroses

      Pass me a shot. Several.

    • Courtney Lynn

      Yup. I might go ahead and have that beer I’ve been eye-balling since 9 a.m. after all.

    • AugustW

      Repulsive is exactly the right word I was searching for. Thank you.

  • Alicia Kiner

    omg. Those poor children. Why on earth does she get a lesser sentence?? She allowed it to happen. She freaking encouraged it. Someone give all of these children to people who will love them and treat them as children. I hope they grow up and don’t remember ANY of this. Unfortunately, they probably will.

    • chickadee

      Because her testimony will convict him, and because there appears to have been a degree of coercion in her case. I expect that without her testimony, his conviction would be in question. I think part of their sentences should including getting spayed and neutered.

    • Alicia Kiner

      oh I agree there.

    • whiteroses

      Can we add “drop them off a cliff” to that? With a bunch of sharp rocks and cobras?

  • Jessie

    ….

  • Momma425

    When i look at my beautiful little girl, I can’t imagine anybody wanting to hurt her. I can’t even express in words the horrible, awful things I wish happen to monsters like this.

  • Steph

    Fuck them and their stupid fucking faces. I’m struggling to get pregnant yet these monsters can so easily? They can die in a fire.

  • LET

    Wait, so TWO women let him do this to their daughters? W…T…F?? And the moms watched & didn’t stop it?????????? This is seriously making me ill, I don’t even think I can finish my coffee.

  • whiteroses

    I try to find the good in people. But every so often, I hear about stories like this and I lose all faith in humanity.

    If someone EVER tried this shit with my kids, I’d kill them with my bare hands. So not only knowing about it but aiding and abetting it? These people are the lowest form of scum there is, and they deserve whatever they get.

  • kimberly

    My mother kidnapped me from my father when I was 3 to prevent this kind of thing from happening to me. My father had the same kind of ideas and thoughts and desires. I didn’t understand when I was 9 and I found out my step-dad wasn’t my birth father…but as an adult, I completely understand and respect her decision. She wasn’t able to keep me personally safe from harm forever, but it wasn’t at the hands of my father. This sickens and disgusts me, and is a little too close for comfort, being that I could have very well been raised that way. I can’t get my sisters to open up to me about living with my father. I may never be able to.

    All this, and recently infertile? Ugh. I want to shoot people like this in the face and steal their children. I wouldn’t, but goddamn, it’s so freaking tempting it breaks my heart.

    • whiteroses

      I am so sorry this happened to you- and to your sisters. I think that we’re all so used to parents who would give or do anything to protect their kids from harm that when we hear about someone on the exact opposite end of the spectrum, it’s very hard to process. Most mothers wouldn’t even consider this as a possibility.

    • kimberly

      Thankfully nothing (with my father) happened, with my youngest sister, who knows. He isn’t a healthy minded individual, even to this day. But yes, it’s hard to believe a woman who birthed the child could do that to them. Sometimes I am not surprised when it’s a step mom or girlfriend, bitches can be dumb…but a birth mother? Being infertile, I just cannot, will not EVER understand the mentality that it would take to allow your child to be harmed. Never will I understand.

    • whiteroses

      Without insulting you in any way, because I absolutely don’t want to— I’m a mom, and I can’t understand it. I can’t understand the mentality that would make you carry a child for nine months (with all the physical and emotional changes that are connected to that), give birth to them, change their diapers, get up with them in the middle of the night, experience the emotional connection that the vast majority of babies have with Mommy (the one person on earth who can fix things that aren’t right) … and then serve them up on a silver platter to a monster.

      It’s beyond me how someone’s mind can be so twisted and screwed up that they would see a baby that they care for, one that trusts them, one they’re supposed to love, and mistreat them in any way- much less something like this.

      It’s hard enough for me to think about his heart or bones getting broken. So this? I can’t imagine it.

    • ElleJai

      I look at my son when he laughs, when he looks up at me with his face and body alight with joy, and I cry because I never never want to see him hurt. Not physically, no emotionally.

      I’ll forgive his first girlfriend for breaking his heart because that cab be healed, but I would kill anyone who wanted to hurt him deliberately.

      He’ll, he’s 14 months old and I made his godmother apologise to him for telling him to shut up. I don’t care that he doesn’t understand, if he’s upset you fix it instead of being rude! That’s my baby. I just can’t even fathom… I mean, I’ve got lullabies written to the children I hadn’t even conceived yet!

    • kimberly

      Out of curiosity, what part of what you said was insulting? It makes perfect sense to me. That’s why I’m eternally grateful for a mom and step-mom that were strong! :) Thank goodness. You sound like a mom who would do just about anything. It’s weird because around fathers day of this year, I realized, my mom really did what she thought was best. Before I had a horrible conversation with my dad, I really didn’t think my mom had been justified. But, having had a conversation with him when he was out of his damn mind, I COMPLETELY understand. I believe I thanked my step mom years ago for being strong, if not she needs to know I do almost every time I see my sisters. I also finally had acceptance, understanding and forgiveness for my own mother for removing my dad from my life. PLEASE, be strong for your kids, don’t let others make you weak.

    • whiteroses

      I didn’t want to be all “I’m a Mommeee” with you, you know? :)

      I’ve been trying to talk through some things with a friend of mine who is having some issues (nothing close to this, thank God) with her husband. I told her that the biggest thing is making sure her son is safe.

      To me, it seems obvious. You protect your kids over everything. You do for them. You don’t make them your whole life, but in a situation like what you describe, Kimberly? Hell yes I would take my son and get the f out of Dodge. I would be so far gone nobody would remember I was there in the first place.

    • kimberly

      I really understand, this year especially, my mothers choices. I respect her and my step-mom so very much more after this.

    • Liz White

      The girls never experienced what this article is about because I stepped in and would not let it happen. I was the substitute. Not very pretty but they did not get abused.

    • Alicia Kiner

      I just want to say on behalf of your girls, thank you. And I hope you are no longer in that situation, and that you now are in a safe, happy situation, and got all the help you needed when you needed it.

    • kimberly

      She is pretty darn brave! And, she has really been a strong and wonderful example for my sisters (and me :)

    • kimberly

      That’s my awesome, wonderful, freaking incredible step-mother up there. That’s good to know. I’ve never really been able to get an answer…so that makes me feel better. <3 Also, if it wasn't for her…I wouldn't be able to have them in my life. I thank the heavens my dad married her, if not I wouldn't have two of the most amazing women in my life! And I should also thank you mom for being that strong brave mom, and not letting pressure beat you down.

    • kimberly

      BTW, I love you!

  • Cee

    Well thank glob its the weekend so I can drink this story away from my brain as much as I want
    “She loved him and needed his financial security.” UGH!

  • http://www.facebook.com/valerisexton.jones Valeri Jones

    I get that her testimony will convict him, so that’s why the plea deal. But if the father of a child I was pregnant with ever said something like, “I’ll only marry you if you’ll let me have sex with our unborn daughter,” I’d have flown to the other side of the country and picked up a restraining order in every state along the way. Fuck both of them.

    • whiteroses

      Exactly. I have to wonder what this woman’s thought process was. Was she that disconnected from her child that she said, “Oh, sure, I’ll let you do that as long as you marry me”?

      Hell no. I’d be joining you on that restraining order train, Valeri. And somewhere in Fargo, we’d buy some hair dye and work on legally changing our names.

    • http://www.facebook.com/valerisexton.jones Valeri Jones

      i just can’t with this story. Yeah, he faces life in prison, so that’s good. I can only hope the mother doesn’t survive her prison sentence. IMHO, she is more of a monster because she allowed and even encouraged the abuse. She not only let her husband do it, but a random internet creep, too. As a mother, this makes me unbelievably ragey. I hope those babies are with someone who will treat them right and show them what a mother really is.

    • Paul White

      If someone ask to have sex with my i nfant son?

      I’ve got a friend south of Lubbock and one in Oklahoma that have crocodiles. I wouldn’t even need to bother the cops.

    • http://fairlyoddmedia.com/ Frances Locke

      I love this comment so hard right now.

  • Courtney Lynn

    I can’t even… for once I don’t even know what to say other than to express complete and utter RAGE at these people. I’ll just say that I hope he gets lots of um…”love” in prison.

  • Mr Silly

    Please let this man and woman be dealt justice in the manner only a sex-deprived federal penitentiary best does.

  • http://wtfihaveakid.blogspot.ca/ jendra_berri

    This disturbed me so much my brain turned off. I can’t process this amount of complete depravity. What kind of chance in life do these kids have? What sort of re-wiring of their brains has happened from such extreme abuse?
    And how does a man find two women willing to feed him their children? I’d dump a man who asked me to call him daddy in bed, never mind anything beyond that. I have no idea how this conversation could ever even take place and not lead to being dumped and the cops alerted.

  • AugustW

    I can’t even….I can’t. I’ve lost the will to can.

  • zeisel

    You have to take a driver’s test to drive a car, but not to reproduce. A license to drive, but nothing required to have offspring.

    Creating a human being should not be a right, but a privilege.

    • Alicia Kiner

      Unfortunately, then we have to allow the government to choose who can be allowed to procreate. Can you imagine that shitstorm?

    • zeisel

      might be worth it if you spoke to the victims of this type of brutal abuse. that kind of ‘shitstorm’ is priceless to a survivor. i’m sure at one point in time the same was said for having to take a drivers test as well. this ‘shitstorm’ would at least weed out the ones who are blatantly obvious.. it sometimes doesn’t take much.

    • Paul White

      Or go back 50 years and talk to all the people that got fucked back when we tried that sort of thing in the past. Forced sterilization used to actually be fairly common until the post WWII era (the Nazi’s kind of took the shine off eugenics).

    • Ptownsteveschick

      I honestly don’t think it would matter. You have to take a test to get a driver’s license true, but that doesn’t mean that people who pass never drink and drive, drive recklessly, text and drive, or just plain get in accidents that kill people.
      Foster parents are supposed to be vetted, monitored and trained as parents. How many awful stories are there about parents who abuse their foster children or barely provide basic necessities. I can’t see there being a good way to regulate parenting regardless of testing. And then when you get the government involved, you have to look at places like China and how well that turned out for the children born who were not “approved” by the government.

    Why are some of the worst people always fertile?! Gross.

      One of the ultimate forms of Murphy’s Law.

    Sometimes I really wish we used the death penalty more often.

  • ElleJai

    When I read the title, I honestly hoped her womb remained as barren as her brain. No such luck.

  • iwakar

    Would love to know if there is a fund that can be contributed to for the ongoing care of these children.

  • Sean

    They need to get medieval on those two.

  • LaurieAC

    DO NOT make this woman out to be a victim! She is NOT a victim. I am tired, weary and beyond infuriated at this anti-male/elevate-female society that refuses to hold grown women accountable for their sociopathic behavior and the abuse, violation, rape and torture they inflict upon children and adults alike! This woman is AS guilty as her partner in this disgusting and vile scheme they concocted!

  • OneMother

    I think men with the desire to hurt defenseless children to gratify their sexual desires should not only have their hands removed but also their external genitalia. Women whose self esteem and selfishness allow and abed these evil men should be lobotomized and institutionalized. If this seems too cruel even under hospital conditions, then bullets to the back of the head would be swift economic justice. Never should people this dangerous and broken be allowed loose on the population. The risk is not justifiable to ever give them freedom.

  • Lauren

    This makes me so sick. People are depraved. I had similar things happen when I was little. I took whatever anyone shelled out so they would leave my baby brothers alone. I got really good at hide and seek with them. Id make them hide and promise to not come out til I found them. It still sticks with me today as a mother of two little boys. I don’t trust anyone but two people with my kids. Their dad and my grandma.

  • ziz

    This lady looks like she has fetal alcohol syndrome or something. How else could you explain a complete lack of any sense?

  • debbie roman

    You know she only told so they can go easy on her, she is more to blame than him. She carried those babies!!! How the hell can you carry those children in your ******* womb knowing they going to be molested? OMG this is worse than any 3rd world country!
