Prosecutor Drops Rape Charges

DATELINE: SEYMOUR, Missouri

Two adult Missouri brothers of an Amish community who admitted to having sex with their 13-year-old sister have received suspended sentences because the prosecutor feared they would “be eaten alive” behind bars.

Earlier this month, 22-year-old Aaron Schwartz and his 18-year-old sibling Petie Schwartz of Seymour, Mo., pled guilty to two counts of third-degree child molestation with a child under the age of 14. They had originally faced rape charges.

Two other minor aged brothers also had sex with their sister, who gave birth to a baby.

The two older brothers originally received a 10-year prison sentence on one count and five years on a second count.

Now, instead of hard time, the brothers have to write an apology letter to their community, and pay $500 to the Law Enforcement Restitution Fund. They must complete 100 hours of community service.

The two brothers will also be on probation for 5 years and complete a Sex Offender Treatment Program. They will be registered sex offenders for life.

The alleged crimes were unearthed in June when the girl, then 13 and pregnant, confided to a doctor that she had been engaging in sexual intercourse with her four brothers.

The sister was between 12-13 when the crimes occurred.

There was no word regarding which of the four brothers is the father.
