A dad from Madison, Wisconsin locked his daughter in the basement and starved her. The 42-year-old father will be sentenced today; he was convicted of child abuse and felony charges for child neglect last November. The girl’s stepmother was sentenced in July to five years in prison for reckless endangerment and causing mental harm to a child. Her stepbrother is scheduled to go on trial in February for accusations that he sexually abused the girl, while she was locked in the basement of their home.
At one point the teen girl only weighed 68 pounds. It is unknown how long the teen girl remained locked in the basement. Officials are not releasing the family members names at this time to protect the identity of the girl.
The Wisconsin dad could face up to 28 years in prison when he’s sentenced in a Dane County courtroom on Wednesday afternoon.
