Even though he kidnapped Amanda Berry and held her against her will for 10 years, his lawyer says that he really cares about their daughter Jocelyn, 6, and wants to continue raising her. Is he crazy for wanting this?
Ariel Castro must be delusional. The man accused of having kidnapped Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus, wants to be a good dad to Amanda’s daughter Jocelyn. Keep in mind, he made Amanda give birth in a plastic pool and threatened to kill Michelle if something happened to either Jocelyn or Amanda during the birth.
Ariel Castro Loves His Daughter & Wants To Remain In Her Life
Ariel’s attorneys spoke with NBC affiliate WKYC and said that he wants to keep being a father to Jocelyn.
One of the attorney’s, Jaye Schlachet, said: “Mr. Castro is extremely committed to the well-being and positive future for his daughter who he loves dearly.”
Ariel Treated Jocelyn Like A Pet
HollywoodLife.com spoke with Steve Ornstein, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder expert and co-founder of Neurodevelopmental Learning Institute in Playa del Rey, Calif., and he said that Ariel treated Jocelyn like a pet and that doesn’t mean he treated her well.
“He treated her like a pet — giving her the occasional treat and sometimes taking her places with him. But most of time lets not forget this young girl was kept locked up in a dirty house, most likely in one bedroom, with no windows open,” Steve told us. “Young kids are easier to control than older ones. Ariel is a controlling person and he wanted control of these women, including his daughter. He could better control Jocelyn by taking her out to breakfast, giving her candy, making her feel special.
Do you think it’s strange that Ariel wants to stay connected to Jocelyn?
