INCEST & UNDERAGE SEX IN THE HOME OF FAMILY_X_
Angela explained during her forensic interview that she was routinely molested by Carson. Social workers at the CT Department of Children and Families (DCF), as well as Angela’s private therapist, had also previously noted Carson’s molestations. [3A]
Carson admitted to police and social services that he had molested his sister, but minimized its extent. [3B] Julie also discussed it with DCF, but lied about the details and the duration, as she did in her sworn affidavits for police. Julie told DCF that Carson had only “touched” Angela’s “vaginal area” and that both children were “unclear” about the incident. [3C]
Angela, however, in her CAIT forensic interview, was very clear that her brother’s molestations were more than a “touch.” When asked for details, Angela explained that Carson had her use her hands and mouth on his “private,” and that he liked to “rub” his private between her “flaps” (by which she meant her labia). [3D]
Angela told CAIT she was unsure exactly how many times these molestations occurred, but it was “lots of times.”
Angela further explained that she had engaged in sex play with her eight-year neighbor friend, “Lily,” also in Jeff’s and Julie’s bedroom, in which the two girls would “touch each other’s privates.” When the CAIT interviewer asked, “What did you touch each other’s private with?” Angela responded, “Just hands.”
As noted in the forensic medical exam, Angela’s hymen was intact, but exhibited a small “notch.” [3E] This is consistent both with her description of being molested by her brother, and with Lily’s fingers in Angela’s “private” — although such a notch is clearly inconsistent with the multiple alleged penile rapes, the alleged rape with a wine bottle, and the alleged rape with Julie’s dildo.
In her interview with CAIT, Angela further disclosed that she and Carson, and at other times she and Lily, looked at pornography in the form of Jeff’s magazines as well as Internet images on the _X_ family’s shared computer. Both the computer and Jeff’s magazines were kept in Jeff’s and Julie’s bedroom.
Although police would later recover pornography from Jeff’s and Julie’s computer, police recovered no pornography of any kind from the Barney home. [3F]
It is impossible to know, today, how many other neighborhood children, in addition to Lily, may have had engaged in sexual activity in Jeff’s and Julie’s bedroom. At the time of the CAIT forensic interviews, Julie listed her occupation as voluntary “After-School Enrichment Director.” [3G]
