|A cult-like figure whose spiritual and financial hold over a formerly Amish couple enabled him to have sexual relationships with six of their daughters was sentenced to up to 87 years in prison Wednesday.
The sentencing of Lee Donald Kaplan on multiple counts of child rape Adidas Tubular Viral Jogging Triple Black Cheap , statutory sexual assault and other charges that authorities said were committed during at least six years marks the end of a set of criminal cases that have landed the victims in protective custody and their parents in prison.
“Corrupted, perverted, atrocious. Use what adjective you would like to use,” Bucks County Judge Jeffrey Finley told Kaplan, 52, adding that the court has classified him as a sexually violent predator.
Kaplan befriended and financially supported Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus as they were leaving the Amish community almost two decades ago and eventually opened his home to the female members of the family Adidas Tubular Defiant White Women's Online , authorities said. He cast himself as a divine prophet, officials said, interpreting the girls’ dreams, claiming to speak with God and instructing them about the role of women in society.
In return, authorities said the Stoltzfus’ “gifted” their oldest daughter to Kaplan. He impregnated her twice, the first time when she was just 14.

The girls’ mother soon noticed her other daughters coming and going from Kaplan’s bedroom but did not object. Instead, she also began having sex with him and later said she considered her daughters rivals for Kaplan’s affection, according to authorities.
Kaplan’s attorney said after the hearing that his client has maintained that he didn’t have sexual relationships with the younger girls.
Several of the girls, however Adidas Gazelle Men's Cream White Gold Discount , previously testified that the assaults began early in childhood — officials said one of the victims was as young as 6 — and that they considered Kaplan to be their husband. Their mother has said she knew about the sexual relationships but believed “it could be a good thing.”
Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus were sentenced to up to seven years in prison on child endangerment charges in July.
Kaplan, who wore yellow prison garb and throughout the hearing shook his head as authorities recounted the assaults, did not say much, though he told the judge to “do what you think is right.”
“I’m not sure what I can say to you honestly,” he said before he was sentenced.
ATHENS, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- The first tranche of the new Greek bailout program Wholesale NEIGHBORHOOD x Adidas Gazelle Super Black , the third in five years, was disbursed on Thursday on time allowing Athens to repay its maturing debts to international creditors, the finance ministry announced.
The announcement came as Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was holding a meeting with his close aides and advisors to examine the prospect of calling snap general elections this autumn, government sources said.
Following the ratification of the new 86-billion-euro-worth (96 billion U.S. dollar), three-year bailout by the European Support Mechanism on Wednesday evening, the first loan installment of a total of 26 billion euros was paid out Adidas Samba OG Men's Black Online , the national Greek news agency AMNA reported.
About 13 billion euros were allocated to a special account at the Bank of Greece to automatically repay a 3.4-billion-euro debt to the European Central Bank (ECB) due on Thursday, a 2.2 billion euro debt to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the rest to pay off the 7 billion euro bridging loan ESM granted to the country in July.
Furthermore, 10 billion euros in the form of European Financial Stability Facility bonds will be used to recapitalize Greek banks, while one billion euros will be used for the payment of overdue obligations of the Greek government to the private sector.
The development clears the way for the premier to decide on his next steps in the domestic political scene, analysts in Athens noted.
According to government sources cheap adidas gazelle , Tsipras was considering requesting a new confidence vote in his government soon and, in case of failure to win back his party's "rebels", will call snap elections for September or October.
With dissidents within the ruling Syriza party openly blasting the government of making a U-turn on the anti-austerity platform that brought the party to power last January, early polls seem almost inevitable, according to cabinet ministers, opposition parties cheap adidas samba shoes , and local media.
According to government sources, Tsipras was thinking about calling a ballot as early as Sept. 13.
The second idea is to hold the elections later in October so that the government passes some bailout policies through the parliament first, on time for the first assessment by creditors that will pave the way for the discussion on the Greek debt relief.
In order to ensure that the measures will be ratified by the assembly with no problems from Syriza MPs (members of the parliament), the premier could close the plenary so that the draft bills are put to vote in reduced summer parliamentary sessions where he can control the appo.
