Father Who Beat Daughter’s Rapist To Death Not Charged In Texas

father beats rapist to death

A Texas father who beat the man raping his daughter to death in 2012 was not charged in the justifiable killing.

As The Inquisitr reported earlier, the father who beat his child’s rapist to death did not have to face criminal charges or court following the harrowing incident — in which the assault in progress was halted by the distraught man.

The dad’s identity has never been revealed so as not to violate the privacy of the young victim, but the alleged rapist, 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores, was named even in initial reports about the assault.

Back in June 2012, less than two weeks after Flores died in the course of the attack on the little girl, a Texas jury opted not to indict the father for intervening and protecting his little girl.

WBTV reveals upsetting details about the attack and what prompted the girl’s father to resort to physical force to save his daughter:

“The man found 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores and his daughter inside. Neither were wearing any underwear, according to Lavaca County sheriff’s deputies. The father, whose name is not being released to protect the girl’s identity, beat Flores unconscious. The man tried calling 911, but Flores died from his injuries.”

The Daily Mail re-reported the story about the father’s fatal beating of his daughter’s rapist, though it is unclear if any new developments in the case have since occurred to prompt new coverage in the case.

The piece quotes Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon as indicating the dad was “very remorseful,” adding:

“You have a right to defend your daughter. The girl’s father acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him.”

As we later learned, the jury opted not to indict the unnamed father for the rapist’s death at his hands more than a year ago.

    The father of this child was just protecting his daughter. It would be nice if more Dads caught these child molesters in action and beat them all to death. It would just one more molester off the streets and one we don't have to feed for the rest of his life! It's just so sick to think about a grown adult taking advantage of a innocent child.

    If you are committing a violent crime, and you are the one who acted violently first, and you get killed in the process, too bad.

    Why don't they have the death penalty anyway for people who hurt kids like this? These people are no good to themselves or other people and can never be trusted again. Just get rid of them.

    I don't feel the father should be charged for defending his daughter, a victim of a violent crime. I feel sorry for him having to be in such a situation. He obviously was acting on impulse from fear for his daughter and anger toward the creep. He did call 911 for help. That is a very serious event to go through, witnessing such a thing as that and I know, myself, I would probably have blacked out and went ballistic myself. You can't expect anyone to act or think rationally in that type of situation. I hope they are both recovering and doing well.

    As a father you do what you have to do to protect your children, period. This question shouldn't even be asked, he was protecting his daughter.

    Y el castigo para estos desgraciados deberia de ser tan simple como 5 minutos en un cuarto con el papa y un bat…… asi de fácil….. algunos (la mayoría) tendrían pena de muerte, y el que se cubra mejor quedaría estúpido de por vida al menos…… PUNTO

    if I caught someone raping my daughter, I'd have to beat him to death, too. I pray this man will not be charged for defending his daughter.

    Absolutely not..the rapist didn't fare so well going up against someone his own size..too bad. I don't feel empathy for men, coward actually, who prey on children.

    I think the police were grateful in a way coz it saves them the trouble of charging the rapist and there always a chance of him getting off, (the rapist getting off I mean)
    It's still an awful thing this child has to live with and her dad both have to live with the knowing that thi child was still molested

  12. Linda Roberts Harrison

    According to this report he was justified in protecting his daughter…he also called for help …

    Finally! THere is justice in this world. Makes me even prouder to be a Texan. No doubt that as the mother of 4 girls I would kill someone for trying to do them harm and so would their dad.
