David Allen Goddard homeschooled his wife’s adopted stepsister, T.B., who lived with the family, while his wife worked long hours as a nurse. T.B. came to live with the couple when she was 10, and Goddard’s sexual abuse of the girl began immediately. After years of grooming the abuse went from bad to worse, and by the time T.B. was 15 Goddard was raping her regularly. After T.B. reached out to a family friend via facebook, the abuse was reported and Goddard was tried, convicted, and sentenced to 18 years in prison.
