Jack Schaap Sentencing Memorandum
I finally read the Jack Schaap sentencing memorandum today. I should be shocked at what it revealed, but then, I’m not. The sexual abuses of women and children are hidden well underneath the mantle of this religious sect. I am just thankful that these NINE others were caught and indicted too. Here’s the quote from page 21 of the sentencing memorandum:
Since Defendant entered his guilty plea in this case, undersigned counsel has been able to charge — by complaint, information or indictment — nine other defendants with lead offenses as follows: two defendants (separately) with producing child pornography of victims as young as 6 years old in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2251(a); one defendant with transporting a 14 year-old minor across state lines with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2423(a); one defendant with engaging in aggravated sexual abuse of a minor under age 12 in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2241(c); one defendant with engaging in the sex trafficking of adult females in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2422; two defendants (separately) with receiving and/or possessing child pornography featuring minors under the age of 12 in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2252(a)(2) and/or (a)(4); and two defendants (together) with the purchase/sale of an infant/toddler child knowing that the child would be caused to assist another person to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing child pornography in violation of 18 U.S.C. 2251 A(a) and (b). Had Defendant not signed a pre-indictment plea and swiftly admitted his guild in this case, it is unlikely that undersigned counsel would have been able to charge all nine of those other defendants during the same time-frame.
