She did the unthinkable to her own child. How do evil people like this exist?
The charges filed on December 31, 2008 cover a six-month time span in 2007. The father, Donquan Rushin, would allegedly make the girl stand in the middle of a room for hours if she resisted his advances -- sometimes until 3 AM. When the child became exhausted, she would give in to her parents and submit to rape and molestation just so she would be allowed to get some sleep.
Rickeeta Johnson bought the girl alcohol and plied her with vodka to help keep her compliant. When the girl complained, Rickeeta told her to just "lie back and do it."
During a CPS investigation into the girl's reported abuse, Johnson and Rushin admitted raping and molesting their daughter.
Our hearts just break for this little girl.
Warrants were issued for the couple on New Year's Eve. On January 5, Rickeeta Johnson was booked into the Clayton County Jail and charged with rape, sodomy, statutory rape, incest, aggravated child molestation, enticing a child, and providing alcohol to a minor. Her bond was denied on Tuesday, January 6, and she remains in custody pending trial.
Donquan Rushin, however, is still at large. Warrants have been issued for his arrest on the same seven charges his wife is facing. Police believe that Rushin and Johnson separated after talking to police and Child Protective Services, and that Rushin has fled to avoid prosecution. We hope he is brought to justice very soon and thrown behind bars where he belongs.
