‘My rapist father is still in touch with my little sister’

  • 16 years ago my mum left my real father because he was abusive and violent towards her. Last year I and my younger sister decided it was time to look for dad. Mum said she wasn’t happy about it but would be there for us when it all went wrong which she knew was to happen.

    It didn’t take long to find him. Dad was controlling. He didn’t like my boyfriend and made sure we weren’t together long. After a while I moved in with dad and his girlfriend and her two daughters. Dad was dealing in drugs and one night when we were alone he sat me down and told me he would either be going to prison or running away. We ended up having a drink and dad raped me.

    I told my mum and sister about the rape and they wanted me to go to the police but he is a dangerous man and I was too scared. A few months later I got a call from his girlfriend telling me he was in jail [for dealing drugs]. She told me that he had also groomed her eldest daughter and a few other girls.

    I have just found out that my little sister is still in contact with our dad and he has just been released from prison. I don’t want to upset my family by not speaking to my little sister but I feel she should be sticking by me and not by her rapist father. I don’t know what to do. Hoping you can help.
