53-year-old Timothy Ciboro and his son, 28-year-old Esten Ciboro, were found guilty yesterday on all counts of “rape, kidnapping, and endangering children” over a period of three years. Their victims include a “13-year-old who said she was shackled in the basement at various times.”
Their only request in the courtroom was having a Bible at their side.
Looks like that didn’t help them one bit since the judge gave them both the maximum allowable sentences.
Timothy Ciboro, 53, will go to prison for life without parole, a sentence that contains an additional 71 years, while his son, Esten, 28, will go to prison for 68 years to life.During sentencing, Judge Linda Jennings of Lucas County Common Pleas Court called the two ”the most depraved, demented, evil people that I have ever seen.”
“Everything they’re doing they’re claiming they’re doing it through God’s word,” Frank Spryszak, an assistant county prosecutor, said during closing arguments. “They stand there with their Bible. They cross-examine people using Scripture, and it’s all perverted.”
Timothy, who like his son acted as his own defense attorney, did not speak of the charges against him, but asked God for forgiveness, saying his “job in this trial was to glorify Him and not to put forth any dirty laundry or past sin that [the 13-year-old victim] had committed.”
Because their victim was the real sinner…
I’m shocked that a book featuring rape, murder, and genocide as part of God’s Plan didn’t get them off the hook. But at least they’ll have plenty of time to read it behind bars. Good riddance.
