On Friday, a former Connecticut fire chief pleaded guilty in Rockville Superior Court to having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 15 year-old and paying for her to have an abortion when she became pregnant.

In April 2013, the girl told police that 53-year-old Joseph Carilli  impregnated her. She said that she had an abortion and that, for a while, Carilli helped her pay for it, but then stopped giving her money.

In March 2013, the Courant newspaper reported that Carilli acknowledged having sex with the 15-year-old in the Coventry firehouse, the board of directors room, the firehouse attic, his house and the fire department substation on South Street.

josephcarilli“Carilli said that he knew it was wrong to have sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old but he felt that he had no other option,” according to the warrant. Police said Carilli told them he was scared of “being exposed” by the girl and that she was “in complete control of their relationship because she is young, has nothing to lose, and he is married and has everything to lose.”

The girl told police that Carilli impregnated her and that she had an abortion. For a while, Carilli gave her money to help pay for the procedure.

The girl said “Carilli would drive her to the post office to get a money order and the bill would be paid in that manner,” according to the warrant. “She said that Carilli told her to do it that way so that his name was not on a check, and because they did not accept cash. She said that Carilli made a few payments of $25-$30 but he stopping paying and she stopped paying the bills.”

The girl also told police that Carilli asked her to send him naked pictures of herself.

Carilli  has pleaded guilty to charges including sexual assault and tempering with a witness.

He’s set to be sentenced in Rockville Superior Court May 23.

Earlier this month, a West Virginia grand jury added charges of incest, first-degree sexual assault and obstruction to the case of girl whose father and stepmother failed to inform her doctor of an abortion forced upon the child. The couple, Michael Joe and Amanda Rea Adkins, were arrested nearly two years after West Virginia State Police investigators said they lied to doctors about the pregnancy of and subsequent abortion for their 12-year-old daughter.

According to reports, the girl, who is Michael Adkins’ biological daughter and Amanda Adkins’ stepdaughter, became pregnant in November 2010, when she was 11 years old. It was late February when Child Protective Services learned of the girl’s pregnancy, and she was removed from the Adkins’ home.

On March 1, 2011, police say that Amanda Adkins took the girl to Charleston, where doctors performed an abortion. Police were made aware of the investigation into the pregnancy on March 4, 2011, and she and other authorities involved in the investigation believed the girl was still pregnant.

On March 16, 2011, Amanda Adkins took the girl to her regular doctor, saying she was experiencing symptoms of a miscarriage.

During that doctor’s visit Adkins allegedly neglected to tell the doctor about the abortion, and the doctor performed a D&C.

Police say that both Michael and Amanda Adkins lied to doctors, CPS workers, police and other authorities about the abortion, claiming it was a miscarriage for almost eight months.

Today, Michael Joe and Amanda Rea Adkins provided no comment while in court. The indictment charges both with child neglect creating risk of injury and conspiracy. It individually charges Michael Adkins with first-degree sexual assault, incest and sexual abuse by a parent or guardian. Amanda Adkins faces an additional count of obstruction and intimidation of a witness.

State officials note that the abortionist did not report the abortion, despite the extremely young age of the patient and high likelihood of abuse.  According to WSAZ, up until the abortion, all the health care professionals involved in this case were in touch with investigators. That included a therapist and a physician who confirmed the pregnancy. But the abortion clinic in Charleston performed the procedure but didn’t notify authorities.

“Her step mom snuck her off and got an abortion and neglected to tell anybody.” says Corporal Moore with the WV State Police Crimes Against Children’s Unit. “She made statements telling everyone it was a miscarriage. The Adkins’ made threats against their daughter, telling her not to tell.”

According to Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, who has documented the use of abortion to cover for child sexual predators, “Abortion is a safety net for sexually predatory and sexually irresponsible males.”

In 2002, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which Life Dynamics called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to the caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.  (Listen to actual audio taped conversations here).

“When we began to investigate we found it was even worse than we thought it was. Initially we thought perhaps the abortion clinics were only reporting half of the incidents, but instead we found that they were reporting hardly any of them,” Life Dynamics president Mark Crutcher said.

Life Dynamics, Inc. in conjunction with several personal injury attorneys around the country has begun a campaign to educate the public about the pedophile protection racket covered up inside abortion clinics.

The response to the campaign has been tremendous. In fact, many of the attorneys Life Dynamics contacted see the value in pursuing litigation against those who violate mandatory reporting laws.
