Edgar Garcia, 32, was booked into jail on Wednesday on suspicion of molesting and raping his step-daughters over a 12-year period.

Two brave women, aged 16 and 20, showed up at the Mesa Police Station on October 30 with a shocking tale: They'd been sexually abused by their stepfather, Edgar Garcia, for the past 12 years.

They told of a series of rapes and molestations that began when the 20-year-old was "8 or 9," and the younger sister was 4. Garcia, now 32, would have been 20 during the first incidents. They described being forced to submit to intercourse, oral sex, and unwanted touching at various times over the years.

On Tuesday, following extensive police interviews, the 16-year-old made a "confrontation call" with Garcia, now 32. Garcia admitted to having sex with both girls, telling the teen "he was sorry and that he was being stupid," court documents say.

Mesa police arrested him on Wednesday at his home near Broadway and Sossaman roads.

Rickie Moore of Phoenix Sentenced to 52 Life Sentences in Jackson County, Texas, for Sexual Abuse of Three Children

Rickie Moore, 59, of Phoenix, was sentenced this week to 52 life sentences in Texas after being convicted for the sexual abuse of three girls.

A jury in Texas has sentenced 59-year-old Rickie Moore of Phoenix to 52 life sentences for the sexual abuse of three girls.

Which makes us wonder -- since Moore doesn't have 52 lives, can he just be castrated and executed instead?

Ok, harsh. But investigators in the case proved that Moore sexually abused three girls, including one starting when she was 6. No information about the victims was given in an online report by the Victoria Advocate, but it sounds like Moore abused his own family members. The abuse occurred in the late 1980s, and Moore "stalked" his victims across state lines, authorities said. He impregnated one. A Jackson County jury found Moore guilty of several charges listed in indictments filed in 1990 and 2011.

George Kuykendall is off to prison for 24 years after taking a plea deal in what Mesa police told New Times was "the worst case of child abuse [they've] seen where the child survives."

Kuykendall beat his 4-year-old daughter with a power cord so severely that her kidneys shut down after the girl lost a large amount of blood, police said.

The abuse was reported in June 2010, when Kuykendall's girlfriend went to the Mesa Police Station for help getting her 1-year-old son -- from another relationship -- out of Kuykendall's apartment.
