A man who forced his own daughter to have sex with him and his wife said that he never “had second thoughts or guilt” about the sexual abuse.
Amanda has confronted her father for the first time since she was 13 when she was rescued by police, after he had used her to make sexually explicit videos and photos for him to sell.
“I never had second thoughts or guilt after my first time with Amanda,” he said on the Dr. Phil show.
He admitted that he sexually abused his biological daughter for year after claiming he realized he would profit financially from incestuous child porn.
“I admit that I was sexually active with my daughter through her teenage years. When Amanda was about 11, I realized the money-making potential. I started grooming her the day she was born,” he said.
In an episode of Dr. Phil, the victim, Amanda confronted her biological mother Justine, who plied her with alcohol from the age of 11, to make her have sex with the pair of them.
An emotional Amanda recalled how they would film her performing sexual acts after having plied her with alcohol.
“Jim told me with the money we would make I could go to college and do whatever I wanted,” she explained.
‘The first time that Jim tried to have sex with me, I actually was not able. Justine was there. They tried a progression of things that might ease the pain. Justine even suggested alcohol. That did work.
‘Afterwards it was a normal night. Dessert, brush my teeth and bedtime,’ Amanda said.
The pre-teen was threatened her against telling anyone about the household practice of incest and pedophilia.
‘Jim and Justine would threaten that if I talked about any of this to anyone I would never see the house or my dogs, my trampoline, ever again,’ she said.
‘I never had guilty or second thoughts after my first time with Amanda. She was 12 years old,’ Amanda’s father Jim (pictured) said, adding that the sex was ‘mechanical’.
Amanda says that her parents would have sex with her usually about once a week, and most of the encounters were filmed to make child pornography. Her parents allegedly told her that the money was for her college education.
She even claims that her mother tried to give her tips by having sex with her dad in front of her. In one instance, Amanda says her mother brought her into a bathroom to teach her how to French kiss.
Amanda had not seen her parent since she was 13
‘If it was brought up before hand, I usually tried to at least push it back a little bit without disappointing them.
‘It was rather hard because they did tell me that If I wanted to stop or if I didn’t want to do it then I could just tell them.
If it was brought up before hand, I usually tried to at least push it back a little bit without disappointing them. It was rather hard because they did tell me that If I wanted to stop or if I didn’t want to do it then I could just tell them. But if I did that, they would be so disappointed in me and then all of the attention and affection would stop.
‘But if I did that, they would be so disappointed in me and then all of the attention and affection would stop,’ she said.
Because she was so young, she said it took her a while to learn that her parents’ behavior was not normal.
‘I thought they had my best interest in mind. I didn’t know that this wasn’t something that all parents didn’t do,’ she said.
Amanda was horrified to learn that her biological father only claimed to remember abusing his daughter five times, while she remembers a weekly ritual staring when she was 11 years old
Amanda asked her mother: ‘How could you do those things to me – to participate even?
‘My innocence was stolen from me.’
Host Dr. Phil then asks Justine: ‘In what parallel universe does a mother watch her daughter performing a sex act on her husband and her father?’
Her mother teared up as she admitted to making ‘poor choices’ and said she hated herself for what she did.
But in a bizarre move, she spoke as if she was was trying to protect her.
“He would say sexual things to try and turn me on.”
Amanda was horrified to learn that her biological father only claimed to remember abusing his daughter five times.
“It should have been burned into my memory as much as it was into yours,” he told her.
When questioned by Dr. Phil about how that made her feel, she asked him directly:
“Through what span? What exactly would you deem as abuse? Grooming them for prostitution and sexually explicit videos to be sold worldwide. Was that not abuse? My face plastered on some form of sex doll somewhere…”
“No,” he shrugged, explaining that he was talking about the physical acts.
Jim revealed that he had already been making amateur pornography with his then wife Justine since the eighties.
Amanda’s mother, Justine, who forced her daughter to have sex with her and her husband, told Dr.Phil she “hates” herself for her crimes.
Jim on the other hand shows no remorse for his actions. He even complained that he had been “exploited, taken advantage of [and] beaten up” in prison.
“I didn’t see her as my daughter, I saw her as a person playing a role,” Jim said.
“I encountered some pictures of teenage girls having sex, I showed them to Justine and
Amanda and that began the discussion. Amanda showed an interest, I mistook her childlike curiosity for a genuine interest,” he said.
Jim claimed that he would research other young girls, of Amanda’s age, and tried to replicate that with his daughter.
Of his lengthy sentence for the heinous crimes that have impacted Amanda’s whole life, he said: “I felt I wasn’t causing any harm. I felt the sentence was harsh… Twenty years was a bit much.”
He disputed his former wife’s claims that he forced her to make Amanda have sex with them.
“Neither Justine nor me saw an issue with it,” Jim said.
In 1996, Justine and Amanda’s biological father Jim were charged with sexual assault and exploitation of their then 13-year-old biological daughter, Amanda. Both pleaded guilty and received sentences of 20 years in prison.
