Closing arguments wrap up in Lee Kaplan trial

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - Closing arguments have wrapped up in one of the most twisted cases of child abuse ever reported in our area.

52-year-old Lee Kaplan is accused of raping and sexually assaulting six girls who were "gifted" to him by their parents.

The prosecution says Kaplan started abusing children when they were as young as 8-years-old, even fathering two children with the oldest daughter.

The defense says he was taken advantage of by an opportunistic family.

The victims' parents, Savilla and Daniel Stoltzfus, were convicted of child endangerment and are waiting to be sentenced.
