Entire Family rapes 3 year old

During her testimony she said she initially allowed her husband to have sex with their daughter because she was pregnant.

According to Krystal Jordan, the 3-year-old cried so much the second time she was assaulted that she was given pain killers to prevent the noise.

Three Lafayette County men were found guilty Tuesday of raping a 3-year-old girl in 2005.

Timothy Jordan, 38, the child’s father who was charged with five counts of rape, was convicted of all but one count.

Brothers Glen Grose, 40, and Johnny Grose, 48, identified as family friends, also faced five counts of rape. Glen Grose was convicted on three counts, and Johnny Grose was found guilty on two counts.

All three also were charged with five counts of touching a child for lustful purposes. They were convicted of one count. Additionally, all three were accused of child neglect and were convicted of that charge.

Jordan and Johnny Grose were sentenced to life in prison for rape and 10 years for each of the other two charges.

Glen Grose will be sentenced before Circuit Judge Andrew Howorth at a later date because he was determined to be a habitual offender.

During sentencing, at least six armed Lafayette County sheriff’s deputies were positioned throughout the courtroom to ensure no incidents occurred.

None of the defense attorneys would comment.

The jury deliberated more than two hours.

The trial, which started Sept. 29, was emotional and filled with graphic detail.

After the trial, Assistant District Attorney TR Trout said he was pleased with the verdict.

The girl’s mother, Krystal Jordan, was a prosecution key witness. She pleaded guilty to sexual battery in 2007.

During her testimony she said she initially allowed her husband to have sex with their daughter because she was pregnant.

According to Krystal Jordan, the 3-year-old cried so much the second time she was assaulted that she was given pain killers to prevent the noise.

The defense had attacked her testimony, saying she lied and took a deal with prosecutors in order to get a lesser sentence.

Krystal Jordan is serving a 10-year sentence in Lafayette County Detention Center.

“She couldn’t keep her testimony straight,” Timothy Jordan’s attorney Shane McLaughlin said. “These are the classic symptoms of a liar. … I don’t see how anyone could dispute that.”

During closing arguments, Trout acknowledged Krystal Jordan had lied, but not about the rape accusations.

“She’s a liar, and I don’t like saying that about my witness,” Trout said. “But everything she said has been corroborated by evidence.”

The three men were indicted in November 2005. The girl has been in the custody of her maternal grandmother.

The grandmother was the first to report the case to the Department of Human Services after the 3-year-old complained she had been injured. After the trial, the grandmother, with tears in her eyes, said, “I’m just glad it’s all over.”
