Television sensation charged with four counts of child rape. This is disgusting.
He is the star of TLC’s “The Willis Family,” and has been arraigned on four counts of child rape just this week. Toby Willis, hasn’t had the best week after getting hit with all of the charges and we are all completely shocked to hear the news.
According to Fox News the star has not pleaded guilty to the charges that were put on him and he has a plea date for July 11, 2017.
“The disgraced reality star pleaded not guilty to the charges and was arraigned March 13 Cheatham County, Tennessee Circuit Court Clerk Julie Hibbs told Fox News Thursday. He has a plea date for July 11 and a trial date has been set for July 18.”
Apparently Willis was arrested in back in September 2106, and was charged with ONE count of child rape after he apparently had an encounter with a 12 year old girl. Fox News stated that they obtained court documents obtained in September, and a relative was who accused him of the assault.
When he was arrested, his wife Brenda released a statement saying that she was completely shocked and devastated. She says that her priority is her children and trying to help them through this time of grief.
“I was shocked and devastated by the revelation of events leading to Toby Willis’ arrest. As these are very trying times for the Willis family, I kindly ask all to respect our family’s privacy. As a mother of 12, my first priority remains with my children and helping them through this traumatic event.”
“The Willis Family” show on TLC premiered in 2015 and were a huge sensation because they had a huge family and all of their children’s names started with the letter “J.” As of now they have not been renewed to return to the small screen anytime soon.
This is so disturbing…..my heart is breaking.
