J. (b. 1996) was repeatedly sexually assaulted by her father, Jerald A. Hall. J. was homeschooled.

In 2005, J.’s mother sent her to live with her father in Oklahoma. When J. was in fifth grade, her father began homeschooling her. He began to sexually assault her at this time. He moved her to Arkansas, then Texas when authorities grew suspicious. When she arrived in Texas in 2009 she was pregnant; Hall gave authorities various accounts of J.’s pregnancy, but when J.’s daughter was born in 2010 DNA tests proved that Hall had impregnated her.

Hall pleaded guilty to sexual assault and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
