    Re: Sheriff: Father kills man sexually abusing his daughter

    According to the Houston Chronicle, an arrest is not likely. Sheriff has told the AP that the finding is that the father's account is accurate. Details at the link of what happened:

    Update****

    A father who beat a man to death after catching him molesting his four-year-old daughter in a barn will likely not face charges.
    The man - whose name has not been released to protect his daughter - allegedly pulled the attacker off his child after discovering them in a barn in Lavaca County, Texas and then beat the man over the head.
    Authorities said he expressed regret at the killing, and no evidence so far has led them to doubt his story. The girl's grandfather agreed it had been an accident

    He is not likely to be charged. He pulled the man off his daughter while in the act, which makes a big difference from suddenly finding out and then hunting him down.

    Re: Sheriff: Father kills man sexually abusing his daughter

    The 47-year-old arrived with several others. It is not known if the father or daughter knew him.

    The girl was then heard screaming a short time later and when her father went to see what was wrong, he saw the man sexually assaulting her.

    When he pulled him off her, he allegedly hit him several times over the head.

    No arrests have been made in the case. A grand jury will determine what, if any charges will be filed, Harmon said.

    I feel so awful for the daughter. I think the trauma would be a lot and I think seeing her father kill the attacker could possibly add more trauma. Had he survived and she had to talk to police or go to an advocacy center and seen a trial, it would have also been difficult on her. It's hard to say if the actual outcome was better or worse for her. It's so difficult to understand how a child interprets and feels about what happened to them, because they are so young and their communication skills are not fully developed.

    Too bad that all child molestations as they happen couldn't be caught in the act. There would be no need for a registry if that dream could only come true.

    As with all the others here. Wouldn't think twice about taking out anyone, male or female for sexually abusing my children, PERIOD!

    Exactly. I don't care about his legal rights here. My opinion is that he was morally justified. I would do the same thing.

    Good luck convincing 12 people that he did something wrong...

    I definitely feel for the girl. She'll be in therapy for years without a doubt.

    he should plead temporary insanity. I would go along with it as a juror.

    I doubt he needs to. It appears to be a legally justifiable act.

    Morally doesn't mean **** here

    Theres a fine line.....Once the threat has stopped, you must stop

    You cannot continue to beat down the individual once, the individual is no longer a threat

    No jury, North or South would convict him. This is one of those issues Conservatives and Liberals often agree 100% on.
