An Idaho father will face jail time for forcing his young daughter to marry the man who raped her, Fox31 reports.
Keith Strawn will spend 120 days in jail for taking his 14-year-old daughter out of state to marry the 24-year-old man who had raped and impregnated her.
“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 Tuesday hearing. Strawn was convicted of one felony count of causing injury to a child.
Aaron Seaton has been convicted and is serving a 15-year sentence in connection to the rape, which impregnated the teen. She had a miscarriage, Fox13 reports. Court records obtained by the station show Strawn “harbored and protected” the man by letting him live with the girl.
Strawn’s reasoning for what he did apparently stemmed from his reactionary beliefs about pregnancy and marriage.
“If you get them pregnant then you marry them,” he told Moeller.
But he also admitted what he did was wrong.
“I love my daughter very much and I would never do anything to intentionally harm her or put her in harm’s way,” Strawn told the judge. “I made the wrong decision, and I made that decision in duress.”

BLM activist details FBI visit to her home: ‘This is why this president is so dangerous’
President Donald Trump's incitement of racism in his supporters was blasted by Black Lives Matter activist Alicia Garza on Friday.
"The FBI visited my house today," she revealed on Twitter.
"They arrested a man in Idaho on weapons charges who they believe was affiliated with white supremacist groups. They found my name on a list in his home, alongside others," she explained.
"This is why this President is so dangerous," she continued. "He is stoking fires he has no intention of controlling."
"I’m ok y’all, but this sh*t is not ok. Vote this muthaf*cka out," she suggested. "For real."
Did a maskless Trump supporter flash a ‘white power’ sign at his The Villages rally?
Did a maskless supporter of President Donald J. Trump really just flash a "white power" sign at his rally at The Villages in Florida?
The sign, with the thumb and index finger’s tips touching while the other three fingers are extended was traditionally known as the okay symbol.
Southern Poverty Law Center said the hand signal is "used ironically by a number of Trump supporters at far-right rallies. It’s been particularly prominent among far-right street protesters such as the Proud Boys and the Northwest-based Patriot Prayer, whose members have prominently displayed the sign in group photos and during street protests."
