Jeremy Schwer of Indianapolis won't serve any time for raping 6 year old cancer stricken daughter



An Indianapolis man will not serve time in prison for molesting his young daughter who has cancer, Marion Superior Court records show.

Jeremy Schwer, 41, pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony child molesting.

The crimes occurred after the girl was diagnosed with cancer and her parents started alternating taking care of her at night, court records state.

Deputy Prosecutor Courtney Curtis, who is division chief of the special victims team, said she had argued for Schwer to serve nine years in prison followed by three years on probation. But the girl's mother, who filed for divorce, wrote a letter asking the court not to send Schwer to prison because she hoped he would help financially support their children.

After doctors found a brain tumor in 2013, the girl spent several months in the hospital and went through a year of chemotherapy.

Schwer was charged in 2015 after his now-estranged wife called the Indiana Department of Child Services. Their daughter, then 6 years old, told her mother that she had touched her father's "peepeeluca," the family's word for private parts, according to court records. The little girl later told officials that her father also touched her "peepeeluca" and had her sit on his "cat tail."

The girl, now 7, said her father told her not to tell or he would go to jail, court records state. She eventually told her mother it happened every night when she slept with her father.

On Tuesday, Marion Superior Court Magistrate Steven Rubick sentenced Schwer to 12 years of probation, court records state. He also required Schwer to register as a sex offender, continue treatment at a counseling center and vacate the family's home so his estranged wife and children could move back in.

1. Lots of people with families go to jail for less serious offenses

The judge should be kicked off the bench.

6. that poor kid.

What kind of country have we built here, that the mother would ask that he not go to jail for the harm he has inflicted on that child? She must be drowning in medical expenses, and not see any way out.
