As we all know by now, the child’s grandparents can be some of their favorite people. Because they’re part of the family, but not directly connected like parents, grandparents can often be easier on them and therefore very desirable people to spend time with. However, when a grandparent abuses their close relationship to a child, as one 55-year-old man did, it can be one of the most disgusting and heinous crimes imaginable.
Per reports, the then-55-year-old man, Pruett, was arrested after his 11 year old granddaughter became pregnant with his child. She gave birth to the incestuous baby in August. Pruett went through the legal system and was found guilty of these extremely disgusting crimes. He has since been sentenced to spend the next 200 years in prison for both impregnating his 11-year-old granddaughter and se-ually molesting her younger sister. Pruett was sentenced to one hundred years for each charge of incest. “The only real question is how much should be suspended,“ County Attorney Fulbright said. “In my view, over the course of his life, he has set no boundaries when it comes to committing se-ual offenses. Everything about the defendant’s life and conduct has earned him a 100-year sentence.” Pruett was not only the victims’ grandfather, but he was also their legal guardian. He abused that close proximity to assault them and get his 11-year-old granddaughter pregnant se-ually. He will remain in prison until he is 105-years-old when he is first eligible for parole.
The judge was familiar with Pruett. He recalled seeing the man in the system because he had a long history of predatory se-ual misconduct with extremely young females. Not only did the county know this about Pruett, but he was also a free man who was granted guardianship over two little girls. The judge admitted that Pruett seems to lack any kind of semblance of a conscience and readily molested the girls whenever he could. County District Judge Langton recognized that Pruett would be a menace to young female children if he was ever released from prison. This also indicated that the judge had little hope that Pruett would ever fix his ways because he has an incurable attraction toward young children.
The truth of Pruett’s horrible behavior began to unravel when his granddaughter went to the doctor and was discovered to be 32-weeks pregnant. Pruett was molesting her and her 9-year-old sister while he was their legal guardian. Shortly after the girl’s pregnancy was discovered, she was taken to the director of children’s advocacy facility for an interview. Pruett brought the girl in for the interview and was in the waiting room while the victim gave the director of children’s advocacy facility all the gruesome details about how her grandfather se-ually molested her.
