A child by the name of Becca McEvoy, allegedly raped by her police officer father, Robert Ingel. Tragically, while the grand jury hearings were happening Becca died in a car crash.
Becca had previously testified before the grand jury. There are medical records, statements and other documents that speak to the horrific crimes for which Mr. Ingel faces against this helpless child.
Now, Bob Ingels lawyers are once again attempting to interrupt justice in this case. They have asked a judge to put a gag order in place prohibiting others from speaking to the media while they await a decision in whether or not the case can be thrown out because the victim is dead.
You see, there is a little unknown law that says an offender has the right to face his accuser. Ingels lawyer's have asked the court to dismiss this case based the"Crawford" a Supreme Court case. The judge is expected to rule on May 20, 2008.In this case justice for Rebecca has already been interrupted. Bob Ingel remain's free on bond with the possibility of regaining employment in law enforcement and continuing his sexual activities with other minor children.
As the daughter of a violent predator who also happened to be in law enforcement, justice must be served in this case.
The number of professional experts advocating and following this case will not be silenced.
