Florida woman allegedly rapes autistic brother-in-law, gives birth to his child

A woman in Florida has apparently been put behind bars after she allegedly raped her husband's autistic brother and gave birth to his child.

Amanda Brooks was taken into custody by the authorities last week and charged with felony sexual assault, knowingly providing false information to law enforcement, and providing false information to a law enforcement officer concerning a felony, per WOFL.

The Florida Keys Sheriff social media account posted: "Woman arrested for sexual battery. A 34-year-old woman was arrested Thursday by U.S. Marshals in Orlando, Florida for a sexual battery investigated by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office that occurred in the Lower Keys in 2022."

"Amanda Rose Brooks was charged with sexual battery on a person with a developmental disability, providing false information to law enforcement, and filing a false report. Brooks was taken into custody Thursday in Orlando, Florida by U.S. Marshals."

Details of the incident apparently began to develop about a decade ago, per the report.

The 34-year-old woman reached out to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in June 2022, claiming that she had been sexually assaulted by her husband and his younger brother.

Brooks described a list of events that occurred between February and April 2022, noting that she had been "coerced and forced" to take part in sexual activity. She went on to say that she had been "verbally and psychologically abused," according to an affidavit that was obtained by WOFL.

As a result of the alleged abuse, the woman quickly fled with her children to Orlando. She eventually turned in a written statement to the Orlando police that was then sent to Monroe County.

Brooks also provided emails and screenshots of messages with friends that apparently revealed herself as a "victim of abuse and mistreatment by the family of her husband, and continued to insist she was being harassed by them about her having left with her children," according to the affidavit.

However, in July 2022, the mother of Brooks' brother-in-law said that her son was the victim and that Brooks had raped him. Brooks allegedly entered her autistic brother-in-law's room and sexually assaulted him on a number of occasions. The mother insisted that since her son was autistic, he could not possibly consent.

The brother-in-law told the authorities that Brooks had sexually assaulted him at least four times over the previous ten years. He went on to say that he had told Brooks "no" and that "they shouldn't do this," but she insisted that he go along with it, saying that it "was okay" because it "made her feel good," per a report.

During the time of the alleged assaults, Brooks' husband said that he was not sexually involved with her. Brooks had reportedly withheld sex from him, even though he noticed that she was still keeping up with an ovulation tracker.

It was not until September 2022 that the authorities were made aware that Brooks was already several months pregnant. DNA samples were taken in April and May 2022 from Brooks' husband, the brother-in-law, and the unborn child.

The results indicated that the brother-in-law was the father of the child. Brooks ultimately gave birth to the child on January 9, 2023.

Brooks was arrested on December 10. She is currently in jail in Monroe Country on $150,000 bond.
