A Michigan teen was charged with raping a 12-year-old girl after the victim’s mother learned about the assault by reading her diary, MLive reports.
Taylor James Dusen, 18, pleaded guilty to first degree criminal sexual conduct and was sentenced to five to 35 years in prison.
Police learned of the attack after the victim’s mother reviewed her daughter’s diary, Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Timothy Maat told the site.
According to Maat, Dusen met the girl through a mutual friend in 2016.
Prosecutors say Dusen sexually assaulted the girl multiple times in one day at the victim’s home in March 2017.
