Cape Town – The mother in a family of convicted rapists has been sentenced to jail for intimidation and perverting the course of justice.

DailyMail reports that Deborah Babic, 51, from Staffordshire had called one of her husband’s rape victims late at night and threatened to slit the woman’s throat if she testified against 53-year-old Milan Babic.

In another attempt to keep her husband out of jail Babic offered gifts to another of his eight victims two months later.

According to The Sentinel Babic’s efforts failed and Milan was jailed for life in September and charged with committing 22 rapes, four attempted rapes, 13 indecent assaults, and one sexual assault.

The Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court has heard that in some cases Milan blindfolded his victims and persuaded his sons to take part in rapes.

His sons Mathue, 23, and Mikorlee, 17, have been jailed for eight and three years respectively.
