I believe that is straight out kidnapping and rape.

Also the definition of child molestation:

Child molestation is a crime involving a range of indecent or sexual activities between an adult and a child, usually under the age of 14.

Child Molestation legal definition of Child Molestation. Child Molestation synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.

What still is unclear is the role his children played in his life. Sometimes I read they lived with him after the wife left, but then it seems they didn't.
The ex wife did not accuse Colon of molesting the daughters. She was adamant that her husband was innocent and being framed by Ariel. She testified that Ariel tried to bribe her to testify against Colon, and that he had bribed the daughters with gifts and promises of new cars if they testified.

As far as Ariel targeting children the article says a family member told a private investigator she was molested by him. "Molested" implies she was a child when it took place.

I don't understand how anyone could think what was done to Colon is irrelevant. Bringing false charges against someone, bribing witnesses, are all very serious crimes. Ariel should be investigated and tried for them on top of all his other charges (which will hopefully include murder for the babies Knight carried)-- Colon's life was ruined by these allegation, he is now on the sex offender's list. Colon probably has a civil case against the state as well. And if he did tell the FBI to investigate Castro it would bolster any civil case the kidnap victims might bring against the city (remember Dugard in CA was given a $20 million settlement from the state).

Default Cleveland Kidnapper Ariel Castro Charged For Killing Two Babies in Abortions

Cleveland Kidnapper Ariel Castro Charged For Killing Two Babies in Abortions | LifeNews.com

"Last month several national and Ohio pro-life groups joined together to sign and deliver a letter asking Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty to file murder charges against Ariel Castro for killing five unborn children during the kidnapping of Michelle Knight, one of the three women he abducted. The signers of the letter believed that Castro should be charged for violating Ohio’s Fetal Homicide Law."

The more I hear about this monster, the more I think this guy deserves the worst. Prison is really too cushy for this beast. He just needs to be chained to a wall, and fed to wild dogs.

Poor Michelle, I hope she finds something in her life... Her life was stolen. She must have been terribly abused to have forced miscarriages.

The shame in this case is that from what I read this guy offered to kill himself. If he had been allowed to avail himself of that opportunity, he'd be gone and the state could skip the expense of a trial.

"No charges were brought against the two brothers of Mr. Castro, who were arrested with him: Onil Castro, 50, and Pedro Castro, 54. Ed Tomba, deputy chief of the Cleveland police, said investigators were convinced after interviewing the victims that the two brothers had no involvement or knowledge."

Argh. He pleaded not guilty today. They said more charges could come later so maybe another chance for him to plead guilty.

The guy is a total sadist, going to trial would just be his way of making the victims suffer more. I'm hoping he dies before trial - from a beating, heart attack, kidney failure, suicide, whatever.

Last I saw the Cleveland Courage Fund was over $850,000.

From the news conference:

After the hearing, attorney Craig Weintraub, who also is representing Castro, said some of the charges against Castro "cannot be disputed," but that Castro needed to plead not guilty for the process to proceed.

Weintraub said the defense team is seeking a resolution that would eliminate the need for a trial. But that would likely require prosecutors to drop the aggravated murder charges and the possibility of a death sentence.

"We are very sensitive to the emotional strain and the impact that a trial would have on the women, their families and this community," he said.

Hmm, that's good if he doesn't want a trial. The Fort Hood shooter wanted to plead guilty to the murder charges but the judge refused to allow it since he could get the death penalty (that'd have been terrible - not). Castro getting the death penalty for the forced miscarriages is a LONG shot and not worth the expense of a trial.
