Bowling Green, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) - William Fockler, 41, and wife Erin Fockler, 30, were sentenced to jail terms after pleading guilty to forcing Erin Fockler's 12-year-old daughter to perform sexual acts on the couple back in March.
According to court records, William and Erin Fockler pleaded guilty to forcing Fockler's 12-year-old daughter to participate in sexual acts as both adults watched a pornographic movie.
Investigators say each spouse accused the other of forcing the girl to perform sex acts last March while the couple sat nude on either side of the girl. William Fockler also admitted to having sex with the victim two more times in the girl's bedroom.
William Fockler pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree sodomy and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Judge Dan Dildine sentenced him to a 20 year jail term and a 7 year jail term - which will run concurrently.
Erin Fockler pleaded guilty to 1st-degree sodomy and endangering the welfare of of a child. She was sentenced to serve terms of 12 years and 7 years in jail - which will also run concurrently.
The couple was immediately incarcerated at the Missouri Department of Corrections. The victim and the couple's 8-year-old son have been placed in foster care.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
Normally we don't identify victims in our reports. Unfortunately, every news report I could find on this story listed the victim's relationship to the couple, as it was an open detail of the court proceedings... This being the case, we're going to follow suit, only on the basis that this couple be known for the sick, twisted and perverted bastards that they are.
While we honestly believe this couple should have been jailed for life.... we're at least glad to see the judge sentence them to lengthy jail terms.
Now say goodbye to the Focklers..... we truly hope they have a Focking good time in prison.
