Father who tortured, raped his daughters sentenced to 30 years

He fathered two children by one of his daughters.

A father who tortured, starved and raped his twin daughters has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty in court this week.

Jerry Curry, 52, was charged last year with inflicting horrific crimes on his daughters, both of whom have developmental disabilities and are now in their 20s.

One of the daughters told police that Curry had fathered two children by her in June 2014 and October 2017 after regularly raping her, saying her sister was also sexually assaulted.

He also stomped on the head of the other daughter, who has a neurological/cognitive disorder with intellectual skills of a first to third grader, and the behavioral capacity of a 6-7 year old.

This attack left her blind in one eye, with little prospect of her sight ever being restored.

Curry would beat the pair repeatedly with bats and paddles on their arms, legs and heads, and chained them up for days at a time, sometimes without food.

Curry pleaded guilty in court this week to one count of first-degree sexual assault on Jan. 1, 2017, one count of first-degree assault – relating to the stomping attack – and one count of gross misdemeanor child endangerment.

This last charge related to a third daughter, who at the age of 10 witnessed the attacks Curry inflicted on her sisters over a two-year period.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman called it "one of the most revolting cases I have seen."

"We are happy that Mr. Curry agreed to plead guilty and accept a long prison term for his crimes," he added.

“That saved his victims from having to testify and relive the horrific times he put them through."

The mother of Curry's daughters, Shelia Wilson, was charged with criminal neglect, a felony, and is due to be sentenced on March 11 after pleading guilty Sept. 19.
