An unnamed Oklahoma girl was raped in her home and became pregnant at age 11. The story does not give her relationship to the man, Tommy James Isbell, but stepfather is a good guess. Social services placed the girl in foster care, where she was raped by her foster father, Timothy Joe Mountford, and became pregnant at age 14. All in the best interest of the child.
