Convicted Child Abuser Loses Appeal

Jerrold Rathbun, in prison for torturing his stepdaughter, has lost an appeal to overturn his prison sentence. Rathbun plead guilty to child abuse charges in 2001. Police say Rathbun and his wife tortured his 8 year old stepdaughter by hanging her by the wrists, poking her feet with pins and in the most bizarre case, forcing her to eat cat feces. He will now continue to serve his 15 year term. Rathbun's wife , Eva, is serving 10 years in prison on the same charges.
