Girl adopted by Missouri couple

A married couple adopted two children, a boy and a girl, from Peru in October 1990 when both children were 3 months old. The father molested the girl during their 4 month stay in Peru and for at least 18 more months in the United States. The father had molested before as a teenager, similarly violating his then-3-year-old cousin.

After confessing to his clergyman in 1992, the father was charged and pleaded guilty to two counts of sodomy. The court gave him a suspended sentence, placed him on five years' probation and ordered mandatory counseling. The parents divorced.
