A father who tracked down his daughter’s abuser and shot and killed him has been sentenced to FORTY YEARS in jail. In what sounds like the plot to a movie, 43 year-old Jay Maynor, murdered the twisted 59 year-old Raymond Earl Brooks back in June 2014 after finding out that the man had molested his daughter, Julia, ever since she was just four years old.
The oddly long sentenced has shocked Maynor’s community and everyone who’s read about it since online.
“My father was protecting me, like a father should do.” Julia told a TV news outlet recently. “He is an amazing father – actually the best. He loves us so much. Brooks took my innocence away and only served like 18 months, and now I suffer daily from what Raymond did to me,” she went on.
It was a busy day for Jay. On the same day of the fatal shooting Maynor also shot his gun into a shop in the general direction of a man who was seeing – and being physically abusive to – his daughter. The man was unhurt. Maynor got twenty years for attempted murder for that and the two sentences will be served concurrently.
