Tamas Sisters, Victimized by “Foster Father,” File $45 Million Dollar Lawsuit

You’ll recall that I blogged about Estera Tamas, above, her sisters, and their terrorism at the hands of their “foster father,” Enrique Fabregas,  here and here.  Fabregas raped the sisters from the time they were three years old, in at least one instance, brutalized them, photographed himself raping and brutalizing them, urged them to shoplift, supplied them with drugs, then used the fact of their shoplifting and drug addictions to silence them when, on 28 separate occasions, he was reported to authorities.   One reason he got away with all of this is, he pretended to be a conservative Christian and sang in the choir of a local megachurch.  A pastor vouched for his character when he got custody of the girls, whose mother he had met in drug treatment.

These young women have now filed a $45 million claim against Washington state, accusing authorities of negligently letting the man be a foster parent, despite a criminal record and numerous complaints against him.

I hope they win.  They deserve every last penny.  And I continue to be amazed and in awe of their courage.

  2. And let’s not forget, gyns, that this is not about foster care — it’s about MEN. The fact that this man was their foster parent is immaterial — he would have abused them no matter his legal relationship to them. It’s a red herring, taking the focus off men, to make the story about foster care. There are tens of thousands of foster parents in this country, a fraction of what’s needed, doing their best to take care of the children that men have abused. There is no way in patriarchy to keep girl children safe from men.

  3. So true. Being a foster parent gave him unlimited access and control to abuse, but the focus should remain on the fact that men abuse. These things are always made to be about flaws with foster care, flaws with children’s services, and those are issues, but the issue here is, this man systematically, consciously, intentionally abused these girls for years.

  4. Heart,

    This item (the lawsuit) brought a huge happy smile to my face!

    Thank you again and again for bringing all (or a huge amount of) the *real* news together in one place.

  5. By the Great Mother! I hope they get him for every penny. Then hang that man.

    Those women, they are more courageous than they know. I pray to the Goddess that he hurt no one else, but if he did, that anyone else he raped/tortured/victimized comes forward and he is destroyed.
