ST. ANTHONY, Idaho (FOX 26)
An Idaho father is going to jail for forcing his young daughter to marry the man who raped her.
According to FOX 31
, Keith Strawn took his 14-year-old daughter out of state to marry the 24-year-old man who had raped and impregnated her.
Strawn was convicted of one felony count of causing injury to a child, and he will spend at least 120 days in jail.
"While you spend those 120 day in jail, perhaps you will think about the 120 days your daughter was in a vile farce of a marriage to a rapist," Judge Greg Moeller told Strawn at his hearing earlier this week.
The victim had a miscarriage.
Court records state that Strawn "harbored and protected" the man by letting him live with his daughter.
"If you get them pregnant then you marry them," Strawn told Moeller. "I love my daughter very much and I would never do anything to intentionally harm her or put her in harm's way. I made the wrong decision, and I made that decision in duress."
