A man in Pennsylvania was charged with sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor after he allegedly fathered two children with a teen-aged girl who was given to him as a gift by her parents.
12 girls were allegedly found living in 51-year old Lee Kaplan’s home. Their ages ranged from 6 months to 18 years old. Police claim that the 18-year old was the mother of a 3-year old and a 6-month old child.
The girl’s father, Daniel Stoltzfus, is reported to have told officers that he and his wife Savilla, gave their daughter as a gift to Kaplan for helping them out of a “financial ruin” after “researching the legality of it on the internet.” According to police, Stoltzfus’ daughter was 14 when she got pregnant the first time and he was aware of her pregnancy.
There were no other details available about the other girls living in the home. The girl’s parents are charged with child abuse or neglect, endangering the welfare of children and conspiracy. Daniel Stoltzfus was also charged with statutory rape in 2012. No details were available about that case.
