Man Convicted on 48 Sex Abuse Counts; Sentencing Thursday

This father breaks the mold (maybe) and rapes both his biological and step daughters. Where are girls to turn? I think we need to revamp sexual education classes to tell children that they aren't always safe in their own homes.

Sentencing is set for Thursday for a Mason County man found guilty on multiple charges of sexual abuse.

A jury found 49-year-old Dennis Knopp of Leon guilty Friday evening after a three-day trial.

Knopp was charged with 64 counts of sexual abuse against three minor females. He was convicted on 48 of those counts. The victims are are Knopp's two biological daughters and his stepdaughter...

This man is my stepfather, and I can tell you that he is honestly innocent. I did not like this man when I first met him, but not because of anything he had done, I was just set in my own ways. I loved my stepsisters, still do, but they were told lies by their mother how she seen him do things to them and they grew to believe these lies. One day the Lord God will judge us all and the TRUTH will be told. Don't get me wrong, my heart goes out to those who are abused, as I was abused myself, but too many innocent people are sitting in jail/prison just because someone gets mad at them. Just an FYI, the reason he wasn't convicted on all the charges, was because they caught the oldest girl in one of her lies, it's just too bad they didn't catch them all.

How exactly can you know if your stepsisters were abused or not?

I know that people are abused and no one ever knows, but the stories and lies that these girls told did not make sense. on some of the occasions where they were supposedly raped, I was right there with them or they weren't even home that day. they say they were beat with thorns and sticks, but they were never whipped. They had to stand in the corner as their punishment. Only one time did my oldest stepsister get whipped. I promise you I would not stand for him if I even thought maybe he did it. But when my oldest stepsister told him" if you don't leave me alone, let me go live with my Mom, then I am going to say you molested me!" I promise you these are lies. If I had a chance I could tell you all of them and it would make more sense. So where did you get your info from?

These girls are my daughters and as you can read from the other comments my daughters had nobody listen to them not even the other family members, I reported this monster to social services that my oldest daughter was raped,and the other girls were being physically abused they talked with him and he denied and only admitted to corporal punishment.I was told not enough evidence. I have been accused of putting these things in my daughters heads, they are now 26,21,18 years old they are in counseling and because of one wv state trooper who listened to the girls after the youngest came forward he investgated and now they are finally getting justice they deserve. This man is evil and sick, come to find out he molested his own sister at a young age while it had been to many years and in another county he couldnt be tried for this rape,and he continued to rape thank God he will never hurt another child. And for the so called stepsister she didnt live in the home with them and it wasnt because of lies why he wasnt convicted on all charges there was not enough evidence for the physical abuse on the oldest because it was in another state, And also the stepsister was told to go to the WV state police and ask about the lie detector test he failed that was given by the state police. To bad the prosecuter couldnt use it in court so all could see just how sick he is..

Dear Mother,

Social Services has become the enemy as they are merely a representative of sexist thought that is pervasive in the father's rights extremist community. They never have enough evidence until someone is dead, and at THAT point, they claim they did all they could.

No one on this site really gives a shit about what the stepsister came here and said. Some people just come for their own vindication because they still can't get that monkey off their back so they continue to live in the shadows. Peace for you and your daughters.

Dear Mother, and Randi,
Sadly, there are countless stories like this- and, in so many-the social services (should be social vices) are a major part in the ongoing criminal activities.
Thankfully, this particular brute was stopped.I comprehend your pain.

I still love you girls and consider you my stepsisters. Wish you never would have walked out of my life, but you did. You know that I loved you. Hope you will soon talk to me as I did nothing to you. You girls loved me as well til you got older and wanted to go live with your Mom. Once you were there, you never had contact with me. I did nothing to you and I know you have to believe that. I just wish you would talk to me. You can't believe everything you hear. That's why I want to talk to you, Marley And Jenny. You may feel I don't love you girls, but I do and have missed you over the years.

Listen anonymous step-sister, maybe you should have thought about the consequences of calling girls were abused liars. When you wonder why they aren't in contact with you maybe you should look at your first couple posts. I know a member of this family very well (bad form with revealing names, by the way), and I see the pain in her eyes when she even thinks about him. So do not preach to those who are the victims, please, for their own sakes.
