Mother Participated in letting Two Daughters get Raped


At the Sedgwick County Courthouse in Wichita, James Lamont Brown was led away Friday after he was convicted of numerous felonies in attacks on two girls from Kansas City, Kan. Sentencing in the case has been set for Jan. 10.This is one of the strangest and just all around sickening displays of disregard for the safety of one's children I have seen.  It turns out that the mother of these young girls was not only turning a blind eye to the rapes of her two young daughters she was actually helping the man.  Some of the quotes are just completely ridiculous.  Here is the article in the Kansas City Star.  Then followed up by another update from the Star.

KCK firls testify in rape, human trafficking trial.

By: Hurst Laviana

A Kansas City, Kan., woman described to a Sedgwick County jury Wednesday how she made repeated trips to Wichita with her young teenage daughters so a Wichita man could have sex with them in an east Wichita motel room.  “Who rented the room?” Deputy District Attorney Marc Bennett asked.

“Sometimes I did, sometimes he did,” the mother said.  “The lights were on?” Bennett asked. “Correct.”  “You could see what he was doing to your girls?”  “Correct. I’d tell him to stop but he wouldn’t. He told me he’s the head of the household, and he wanted things to go the way he wanted them to go.”

The testimony came in the trial of James Lamont Brown, 49, who is facing multiple counts of rape and aggravated human trafficking for crimes that allegedly occurred from April 2010 through June 2011. The girls, now 14 and 15 years old, both testified Wednesday that Brown had sex with them on at least five weekend trips they made to Wichita with their mother in 2010 and 2011.  The younger sister said they followed the same routine every time after checking into the Econo Lodge at 8302 E. Kellogg.
“He would take off his clothes. Mom would take off her clothes, and they would have sex,” the girl said. “And then he would come to me.”

The mother, who is not being named to protect the identity of her daughters, has pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated human trafficking and is facing a sentence of life without parole for 25 years.
Seconds after defense lawyer Mark Sevart finished cross-examining the older girl, Brown startled the courtroom by announcing, “Objection. I’ve got a list of questions.”  After the jury was excused, Brown told District Judge Greg Waller that he had prepared a list of questions he wanted to ask the girl, but that his lawyer, Sevart, refused to ask them. Waller asked why the questions hadn’t been given to Sevart earlier. Sevart said that his client had refused to meet with him when he tried to visit him several times in jail. Waller refused a request by Brown that he be allowed to represent himself for the duration of the trial.

After the jury returned, the mother said that Brown wanted to get both of her daughters pregnant so he could expand the size of his family. She didn’t have a clear answer when Bennett asked why she allowed the abuse to happen.  “Why didn’t you turn around in Emporia and go home?” Bennett asked at one point. “I should have, but I didn’t,” she said.

The prosecution is scheduled to rest its case Thursday.

Wichita Man Found Guilty of Raping two KCK girls

By Hurst Laviana

A Sedgwick County jury on Friday convicted a Wichita man of 17 of 20 felony charges that accused him of raping two Kansas City, Kan., girls after their mother checked them into a Wichita hotel so the man could have sex with them.  Prosecutors said police became involved after the younger girl mentioned the abuse to a woman who was braiding her hair.

The defendant, James Lamont Brown, 49, showed no emotion as District Judge Greg Waller read the verdicts shortly after 4:30 p.m. Friday. Waller set sentencing for Jan. 10.  Because of his extensive criminal record, Brown would face a mandatory sentence of life without parole even if convicted of only one of the 20 charges.  Brown was charged with 10 counts each of rape and aggravated human trafficking for having sex with the girls, who are now 14 and 15, in 2010 and 2011. Some of the charges cover a time when the girls were 11 and 12 years old.

The girls’ mother, who is not being named to protect the identity of her daughters, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated human trafficking and is facing a sentence of life without parole for 25 years.  She testified this week that on at least five occasions she sat on a motel bed and watched as Brown had sex with her daughters. Both girls also testified that Brown had sex with them on multiple occasions.  Brown denied the allegations when he testified Thursday in his own behalf.

At the outset of the trial, Deputy District Attorney Marc Bennett said the rapes occurred after the mother drove the girls to the same hotel. He said the rapes always occurred in rooms with two beds. The mother and one daughter would typically sit on one bed, he said, while Brown had sex with the other daughter on the other bed. He said the girls often cried during the rapes.  “Sometimes he would stop if they cried loud enough,” Bennett said. “Other times he wouldn’t.”  The younger sister testified that they followed the same routine every time after checking into the motel.  “He would take off his clothes. Mom would take off her clothes, and they would have sex,” the girl said. “And then he would come to me.”

The mother testified that Brown, whom she identified as a cousin, wanted to get both of her daughters pregnant so he could expand the size of his family.  At one point, Bennett asked the mother if she could see what Brown was doing to the girls.  “Correct. I’d tell him to stop, but he wouldn’t. He told me he’s the head of the household, and he wanted things to go the way he wanted them to go.”

She didn’t have a clear answer when Bennett asked why she allowed the abuse to happen.  “Why didn’t you turn around in Emporia and go home?” Bennett asked.  “I should have, but I didn’t,” she said.
