Helen Wells, born c. 1979, was sexually abused by her father, Robert George Wells, starting at age three and ending only when she left home at age 24. Her mother knew about the abuse and did nothing. Helen’s brothers were not abused. Helen was homeschooled and stated “I never went to school. I was homeschooled and I was kept out of school for the purpose of concealing the crime. So I did correspondence to grade six and then no schooling after that. So I am self-educated.”
Helen first reported the abuse in 2004. In 2008, Robert Wells pleaded guilty to 33 charges including indecent treatment of a child and incest. He was sentenced to 11 years in prison.
