‘Holy law book’: Father & son facing rape charges use Bible in defense — RT America
An Ohio father and son facing multiple charges of rape, endangering children and kidnapping have told a court they’ll use the bible to defend their case as it’s “the only law book that truly matters.”
Timothy and Esten Ciboro, who are representing themselves, explained to the judge that they intend to “use God’s holy word to ask questions, questions that we believe are absolutely vital to our case,” according to the Toledo Blade.
“There’s a great deal of strategy in Scripture and I use those strategies in everything I do,” Esten Ciboro, 28, told the judge, adding that “it’s a vital part of everything I do.”
While the court in Toledo, Ohio, accepted the pair may reference the Bible in their defense, the judge refused the use of it for questioning witnesses as it “is not a law book in a court of law.”

The accused have repeatedly argued against having a lawyer represent them, instead telling the court in November that “Professionals built the Titanic. Amateurs built the ark.”
It’s alleged that the father and son chained Timothy’s 13-year-old stepdaughter by the ankle in the basement of their home, and sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions between 2012 and 2015. Timothy is also facing additional charges of sexually assaulting a younger sibling of the teen.
