Firefighter and Son Keep 13-year-old Prisoner

Timothy Ciboro, 53, and Esten Ciboro, 27, kept a thirteen-year-old girl handcuffed in a basement. They kept her imprisoned for different periods of time, one of the incidents lasting as long as a year.

The victim was kept shackled to a support beam in their basement and was forced to defecate in an ammonia filled bucket. It was only after the two men went for a jog that the young girl was able to free herself.

Left with her father when her mother took off for Vegas, the young girl had episodes of bedwetting, which led to her punishment of being imprisoned.

Once free, the girl was discovered by a good Samaritan who went on to notify authorities. The tale the girl told was awful, one in which she was terribly maltreated and fed scraps of spoiled food.

Both Timothy and Esten have been apprehended by the police and are awaiting trial. The young girl and her two siblings have been placed in foster care.

14-year-old Alabama Girl With Special Needs Used as 'Rape Bait'

A teachers aide convinced a 14-year-old student with special needs to act as bait to catch an accused sexual predator in her school.

The boy, who had been harassing female students to meet him in the bathroom to perform sex acts, had a long history of behavioral and disciplinary problems. The attack on the 14-year-old girl was the 13th accusation of sexual misconduct on the boys part.

The young girl had gone to the teachers aide to tell her that the boy was harassing her. The aide hatched a scheme. She wanted the girl to acquiesce to the boy and meet him in the bathroom. At first, the girl refused. Eventually, the teachers aide convinced her to do it, promising that she would keep a close eye on her via surveillance cameras and would bust into the bathroom before anything could happen. That was not how things occurred. The young girl was sodomized in the bathroom.

The young boy went on to be suspended for a few days and was then allowed to return to the same school which the victim was attending. The girls father has gone on to file a motion to sue the school district.

Woman Has Phantom Pregnancy

Barbara Bienvenue, 37, of Quebec, Canada, convinced many people she was pregnant with quintuplets. A local newspaper even ran a story on the pregnancy. She duped her boyfriend Paul Servat and accepted donations in preparation for the delivery.

Her belly swelled, breasts began lactating, and water even broke! When her boyfriend brought her to the hospital to deliver he was informed by doctors that she was not, nor had ever been, pregnant. She is now receiving psychiatric help. Her devastated boyfriend has begun the arduous task of returning all the donated goods.

Fantastically, this is not the first time that Barbara Bienvenue has convinced others of medical issues. She once pretended to be pregnant with twins and even posed as a cancer patient.
