January 20, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --An Enfield couple have been convicted of torturing an 11-year-old girl who prosecutors say was raped, beaten and treated like a slave.
James Skinner, 33, and his former roommate, 46-year-old Debra Kay Stewart, agreed to plea bargains Thursday in Hartford Superior Court, the Journal Inquirer of Manchester reported.
Prosecutor Herbert Carlson Jr. said Skinner sexually abused the girl in the summer of 2002 and January 2003 and forced her to watch pornographic movies. He said Stewart beat the girl and punished her by shaving her head and scrubbing her body raw in a shower.
Skinner was convicted of two counts of first-degree sexual assault and one count of impairing the morals of a child. He faces five to 10 years in prison followed by up to 13 years of special parole when he is sentenced on March 15.
Stewart was convicted of risk of injury to a minor and is to be sentenced to three years in prison on Monday.
Skinner and Stewart pleaded to the charges under the Alford Doctrine, which allows defendants to not admit guilt but concede that the state has enough evidence to win a conviction.
Under his plea agreement, Skinner will be required to either accept responsibility for raping the girl or pass a polygraph exam clearing him before he could be released on parole
