Found this case as I was cleaning out ancient email. Notice that sex offender daddy JOHN ROLLINS TUGGLE didn't even bother with his own kids until his ex-wife looked into getting more child support. Then Daddy made a big show of "reconciling"--only so he could get access to his 12-year-old daughter. Then this piece of sh** took her to a remote camp site and raped her. Before stabbing her and leaving her for dead.

Rapist Who Left Daughter For Dead Sentenced
Wednesday January 11, 2006

John Rollins Tuggle, the convicted sex offender who raped and stabbed his 12-year-old daughter and left her for dead at a remote campsite in Idaho, has been sentenced to two life in prison terms without possibility of parole.

At his sentencing hearing, the victim of the crime, Tuggle's daughter, made a statement to the court. "You left me to die and for that you do not deserve life," she said. "I will remove your actions from my mind, as I've already removed you from my heart."

Tuggle pleaded guilty in September so that his daughter would not have to endure a trial, he said.

His daughter spent 10 days in the hospital recovering from her wounds. She had been stabbed in the throat, breast and abdomen.

Tuggle was released from prison in January 2005, after serving nine years for raping his ex-wife 13-year-old sister. After his release, he was living in Colorado and found out that his ex-wife was seeking additional child support for his two children he had not seen in 10 years.

Left Her to Die

He traveled to Idaho to see his ex-wife and told her he wanted to reconcile. Later, he told her he was taking their 12-year-old daughter to the mall. Police said he took her to a campsite north of Prichard, Idaho, tied her up, raped her, stabbed her, cut the ropes from her hands, smoked two cigarettes and left her to die.

The girl was rescued several hours later by campers who heard her crying out for help. Tuggle was arrested a week later, after hiding out in the woods, when he went to Wallace, Idaho and was recognized by a convenience store clerk.
