In 2010, John F. Szorady was sentenced to 74 years in prison for repeatedly raping an Ohio girl, beginning when she was 13 in 2004 through February, 2009, when she went to police.
Szorady,who was the boyfriend of the victim’s mother at the time, began raping the girl in August, 2004, four months after he got out of prison after serving 14 years for sexually assaulting a girl when she was 9, 10 and 11.
The latest victim testified that she was afraid of Szorady because when he became angry, he was “violent, belligerent, [and] intimidating.” He would slap her and her brother, and once grabbed her by her throat.
The teen said that Szorady first raped her on a camping trip in August 2004, when she was 13 years old. Szorady gave her alcohol until she was drunk and passed out in his van. In the morning, she noticed blood in her underwear and Szorady told her that she did “crazy things” when she was drunk.
According to court documents, the victim testified that Szorady, raped her “almost every day” from August 2004 to January 2009, when she finally told her then-boyfriend what had been happening.
She said that Szorady would typically rape her while her mother was at work. Around his birthday in November, Szorady would expect “special nights” of sexual activity from the victim as a gift to him.
After Szorady moved out, the girl testified that she tried to distance herself from him in order to avoid his advances. But Szorady would call her, text her, and leave voice mail messages expressing his displeasure that she was avoiding him. He threatened to give photographs of him and having sex with her to her school, her grandmother, and her boyfriend.
One evening in February 2009, Szorady became unhappy after learning that the teen was at her boyfriend’s house and began texting and calling her incessantly. When her boyfriend told her that Szorady was acting more like a jealous boyfriend than a stepfather, the frightened girl broke down and told him that Szorady had been raping her for years. The boyfriend contacted a school counselor, who called the police.
A pro-life group in Texas, which has been documenting the failure of abortion clinics to report sexual abuse of minors, has discovered that the in addition to the rapes, the victim was also taken for an abortion.

In the report, Life Dynamics writes that, the victim, who they refer to as “Glenda” became pregnant and, in March of 2008, was taken for an abortion.
According to Life Dynamics, “It is evident the clinic did not make a report since Szorady continued to rape Glenda until January of 2009 when a school counselor learned about the situation and called police.”
Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics who wrote the report, said that abortion clinics are mandatory reporters and, “if presented with evidence of sexual activity by a patient who, by reason of her age, cannot legally consent to sexual activity, their only duty is to report to the authorities. The responsibility for determining whether a criminal act has or has not occurred belongs only to the state.”
