Goforth posed for the mugshot above after being charged with the statutory rape and molestation of a 15 year old boy. She was first caught with the teen April 2011 and had been warned that he was under the age of 16, the age of consent in Georgia.
But apparently she didn’t care.
Goforth was arrested last week after the boy’s aunt contacted police about the 33 year old mother of 6 giving birth to her SEVENTH child, the 15 year old boy’s son!
Tia Stephens, the teen’s aunt/guardian, said she discovered her nephew, a ninth-grader, trying to sneak Goforth out of the back door last April (2011).
When confronted, Goforth told Stephens that the teenager said he was 18 years old.
“I told her he was 15,” Stephens recalled. “She said she was 32.”
Stephens didn’t call the police at that time because she had only seen the woman leaving her home but she demanded that Goforth stay away from her nephew.
Goforth insisted she was in love with her nephew, Stephens said.
“‘He wants to be together with me,’” Stephens said the woman told her. “I said, ‘Something is really wrong with you.’”
She didn’t see Goforth again until January 2012, when Goforth’s mother gave her the “shocking” news that her daughter was in labor at DeKalb Medical Center and was about to deliver her teen nephew’s baby.
Goforth gave birth to a son (Anthony) January 9, 2012.
On Jan. 22, the teenager’s 16th birthday, Goforth brought the baby to his home and spent the day there. Stephens says that was the last time they have seen the child.
Janelle Goforth is now in jail on charges of statutory rape and child molestation but now a child is involved and decisions must be made.
“The baby looks just like my nephew,” Stephens said.
“But she’s still wrong. I want her to be treated as if she was a male and it was a 15-year-old girl. It’s no difference to me.”
Stephens said Goforth told her the baby is her seventh child, and that Goforth’s mother has custody of five of the children and the woman’s uncle has the sixth child.
The teen’s aunt is upset about how long it took police to put Goforth in custody, noting that she reported the incident back in January.
Stephens said Tuesday she wants two things to happen: a DNA test to determine that the now 2 1/2-month-old child is actually her nephew’s son, and Goforth criminally prosecuted for allegedly sexually abusing the teenager.
The teen’s aunt has openly discussed her outrage about the case and blames gender bias as the reason authorities took so long to consider her claims that a 33-year-old woman had raped her 15-year-old nephew.
She notes that if the situation involved a 33 year old male defendant who was accused of impregnating a 15 year old, things would have been different and police wouldn’t have taken as long to proceed with the case.
If she’s guilty, I pray they give this broad the same life sentence that gave that 34 year old man who knocked up that 13 year old.
Why do you think female sexual predators are viewed & treated so differently?
