  • Tiara Stevens says her father raped her in  their South Carolina trailer and authorities did nothing for 14  years
  • Fred Montgomery, 47, is confirmed to be the  father – and grandfather – of the young boy
  • The child was born blind and  albino
  • Ms Steven says she sometimes confuses  herself over whether the boy is her son or her brother

A woman who was repeatedly raped by her  father and gave birth to her own brother has hit out after her attacker was only  jailed for a year.

Tiara Stevens said on Monday she had waited  14 years for justice only to see her father’s sentence as a ‘slap in the  face.’

An outraged Tiara said: ‘To wait 14 years and  all a person gets is one year?

‘A pat on the back, telling them it’s okay to  molest your daughter, impregnate her, and for her to have a child, a blind  child? It’s ok?’

Fred Montgomery, 47, had pleaded guilty to  criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

He was sentenced on Monday to 15 years in  jail, but all but one year was suspended.

Tiara was just 12 years old when she was  impregnated by her father at the trailer home they shared.

She only realised she was pregnant the day  before she gave birth after going into labour at school.

Her son was born blind and due to gene  problems was born an albino.

Tiara told officials in 1999 that her father  had raped her in the mobile home they shared in Lancaster County, South  Carolina.

But no action was ever taken even though a  DNA test in 2000 confirmed he was the father of his own grandson.

Tiara and her father continued to live in the  same small town for over a decade until authorities were pushed into action by  the single mother.

Officials with the 6th Circuit Solicitor’s  Office said a fire at the courthouse destroyed many of the documents related to  the case.

In an interview with WISTV, 27 year old Tiara said she  was shocked by the lenient sentence.

‘It was a slap in the face,’ she  said.

Tiara said she is often confused on how to  describe her son.

‘That confuses me a lot,’ said Stevens. ‘It’s  like, “Which one are you today? Are you my son, or are you my brother?” Because  he really is both.’

In a previous interview, Tiara described how  her father would sneak into her room and rape her.

‘He never told me what he was doing,’ said  Stevens. ‘It was just late at night. He would come in, take my clothes off, and  he would have sex. And he would leave and he would say, “You better not stay up  all night,” and I would go in the bathroom and I would cry. The next night he  may not do it, but the next night, he would repeat the same thing.’

Tiara said she has not yet told her son that  her grandfather is actually her father and will be out of prison in a  year.

‘From this day forward, I will fight for  victim’s rights to make sure this never happens again,’ Stevens said.
