Man who killed his daughter’s sexual abuser has accepted a 40-year jail sentence so she wouldn’t have to testify in court.

AL.com reports that Jay Maynor shot and killed Raymond Earl Brooks, 59, in 2014, when he learnt that his daughter, Julia, had been molested by him 13 years earlier.

Brooks adopted Julia’s mother at birth and she knew him as her father.

Julia Maynor told al.com that the sentence has brought back the pain of the abuse, which happened over four or five years, until she was about eight years old.

Ms Maynor, now a 24-year-old mother-of-three, says her dad was doing what any father would.

“Basically he took (the plea deal) so that I didn’t have to relive the molestation and also be on the stand in front of a bunch of people talking about and bringing back memories of the molestation,” said Ms Maynor. “My father was protecting me, like a father should do. He is an amazing father — actually the best. He loves us so much.”

Ms Maynor said she told her dad about the abuse in a moment of anger.

“Me and my husband are now going through a divorce because of it. I have completely pushed him out of my life,” she said. “I am back in the same mindstate that it is wrong, even though we are married and have three kids, it’s wrong.”

Ms Maynor waived her right to anonymity as a victim of sexual abuse after her father’s sentencing.

  • I can imagine this act of the father.


  • I know of a case where the Mum killed the Dad after catching him in the act. They had their own business. They took turns in collecting the children from school. The girl had complained that morning about having a sore bottom as the Mum was dropping the kids off at school and the little one closing the car door when they reached the school. He was abusing the older girls too which the Mum found out just before she killed him. I don’t know the outcome of the case against her but I do know that other workers in that business and others in the same trade were supporting her, also helping her with legal fees. Seems he wasn’t liked for several reasons.


  • But would be she willing to testify now that everybody knows who she is? Would that change the father’s sentence?


  • I am not impressed by the daughter. It goes both ways. Dad was protecting you, you should have supported him in court. Especially as she has now come out to play the victim!
