US man sexually abused adopted Chinese girl for 4 years

Date: 2009-12-14

A US man pleaded guilty in Washington State for sexually abusing his 7-year-old adopted Chinese daughter for four years. He is charged with three counts of first-degree child rape.

Eddy Tony Whisenhunt, 51, will face more than 18 years in prison after his sentencing next month in Thurston County Superior Court.

Whisenhunt's wife, Donna Marie, also faces child-rape charges.

The abuse was discovered by a school counselor, according to the court papers.

The child was placed under the custody of Child Protective Services after the couple's arrest in May.

The news was originally posted on bbs.huanqiu.com Monday, which aroused heated discussion among Chinese Internet users. Some were incensed by Whisenhunt's crime and condemned those who abandoned their children only to be adopted by people with ill intentions.
