At a family reunion in 2004, his daughters began recounting childhood memories of their father, which included memories of molestation.
Last week, he was charged with incest.
Jurors at the incest trial of civil rights leader James Bevel listened to an hour-long recording of a phone call in which he appeared to offer a convoluted defense of a sexual encounter with his daughter.
In the phone call between Bevel and his daughter, Bevel never made an explicit admission that he had sexual intercourse with his daughter. She testified Tuesday that he had sexual intercourse with her when she was 15 in the early 1990s after he pressured her by saying the sex would relieve him from demons that were sapping his strength. …
After his arrest, prosecutors said they received calls from across the country from women who said the were victimized by Bevel.
Yesterday he was convicted.
