Man Tells Woman He Sexually Abused For Years To 'Get Over It' After Admitting To Raping Her On Facebook

He now faces a minimum of 25 years in jail.

A woman recently reported the actions of her childhood abuser to police. The victim, who is now an active duty member of the Air Force, was encouraged by investigators to try to get a confession from her former abuser over Facebook, the Kansas City Star reported.

She reached out to Ronnie Lynn Gipson, now 45, of Arkansas over the social media platform. Gipson lived with the victim when she was a child. He allegedly raped her at that time, when the victim ranged in age from 4 to 12, the River Valley Leader reported. At that time, he allegedly asked the girl, “Do you want to play?” before he would assault her, according to the Kansas City Star.

When confronted with the years of alleged abuse, Gipson allegedly acknowledged the disturbing acts, police said. He allegedly told the woman to “get over it” and that “it’s done,” police said.

Gipson didn’t just allegedly admit the abuse to his victim, but to police as well. Police said he told them that he started having intercourse with the victim when she was 8, but that other sexual contact began four or five years earlier, The Kansas City Star reported. He also allegedly detailed to police how he would “get naked with the victim in the bed,” according to River Valley Leader.

Gipson faces a minimum 25-year sentence, according to the River Valley Leader. He is held on a $500,000 bond. It is unclear at this time if Gipson has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
