Two parents charged with raping baby during supervised visit

WARREN, Ohio - Two parents are charged with raping their own baby, and authorities say it happened at what was supposed to be a supervised visit at Trumbull County Children's Services.

Twenty-one-year-old Felecia Beemer of Warren cried as she appeared in Warren Municipal Court accused of raping her 13-month-old little girl. A baby who was taken away from her immediately after she was born.

Beemer, who is being held on $250,000, has also had three other children removed from her custody, including one-and-a-half year old Tiffany Sue Banks, who died after she was placed in someone else's care.

As 22-year-old Cody Beemer was escorted in to the Warren Courtroom, the judge made it clear there would be no bond because Beemer was in violation of his probation on a domestic violence charge.

Beemer is also charged with raping the couple's daughter, a crime caught on videotape when he misplaced the sim card in his cell phone and the baby's aunt Loretta Allen found it, "I freaked out and told my mom to call the cops and children's services."

Not only did the tape show a sex crime against the couple's baby, but Loretta Allen's two-year-old son who has now been removed from her custody was also allegedly a victim. Allen says she's cried all day, "She's not my sister no more. She's not a part of my family for what she did. I want her to go to prison."

Gregory Hicks, Warren's Law Director who was working double duty as a prosecutor on Friday, says the couple could face even more charges, "There are other allegations which we are investigating, that there may in fact be more charges on one or both of these individuals involving minors."

There's also the issue of where the crime happened, inside a visitation room at Trumbull County Children's Services. The Executive Director Nick Kerosky says, "It's an on-going investigation and I can't comment at this time. It's being looked in to and when we can comment we certainly will."

But the questions remain, how could this happen under the watch of an agency that's supposed to protect children, and why was Cody Beemer, a registered sex offender even allowed on the premises of Trumbull County Children's Services?
