A 24-year-old Gallatin man is behind bars after allegedly raping his four-month-old child.

Bryan Scott Carter is charged with six counts, including statutory rape, statutory sodomy and two counts each of incest and endangering the welfare of a child.

In court documents, officials say Carter has confessed to having intercourse with the child Saturday in Gallatin.

The child was seriously injured and underwent surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital.

Carter is being held at the Daviess/Dekalb County Regional Jail. A judge set bail at $500,000.

    Which is it? Four years old? Or four months old? Not that it matters, still a heinous act upon a child. But a typo, nonetheless.

    I hope the prisoners where he is find the biggest broomstick and let him see how it feels and go through the same torture he did to that baby…they need to strengthen(typo) the laws on monsters like this…I say automatic death sentence no appeals especially after they confess like this thing did, but let the family spend some alone time with him.

  • wondering

    why let his family visit? this POS needs to be taken care of and die of natural causes like the rest. The poor child will probably never have children of her own thanks to that POS! Then how does her mother? or other caregiver explain that to her at the right time of her life.

      sorry I should have clarified a bit more..What I meant was other family members spending alone time with him was to beat the crap out of him over and over until he’s hauled off with the rest of the trash…..I know if relative ever did that to one of our babies the rest of us would dang near kill him before he got to where he’s going

    It is sick to know as a daughter you look to your father for protection and as in this case and many others these children look at their father in fear! This is probably the nastiest thing I’ve ever heard! My opinion is he should be tied up in the middle of town and everyone should be able to come by and punish he how the please! Throwing rocks, beating whatever they feel! I hope in prison he gets the same thing he did to his batgirl done to him, plus more! I honestly hope he burns in hell!

  • Really…

    How could you even bring yourself to do something like that period let alone your OWN baby daughter that is a life long scar that can never be healed or covered up. ( I’m scared of what will happen when my daughter get 16+ of what I would do to another guy if he even touches her infront of me) I think any kind of rape of a persons under the age of 18 the rapest should get death penalty insted of like 10 years nd be out within 3 year like this sick f’er will prolly get. He need a wooden baseball bat with nails sticking out shoved up in him and slowly pulled out to cut his insides up then let him feel the pain for a month+ then the most painful death penalty there avalible. Drop dead sick f’er…

    Lord, I come to you publicly today to ask that you put a hedge of angels around this poor child and protect her from this animal or anyone else that means her any harm! Wrap your loving arms of comfort and peace around her always and forever. I pray in the loving name of your son Jesus Christ….Amen

    Regardless of what he did, Jesus is willing to forgive, if he will turn away from the sin. We should hate the sin, not the sinner. Yes, this is a horrible, terrible crime with many victims, but if you are sitting on the judgment seat, you are there alone; because Jesus is on the mercy seat. Not one of us is worthy to know Christ or to partake of everlasting life. He died and rose for all; even this man.

      Jesus said that you must obey his laws, but also the laws of man. “Render unto God what is God’s, and Render unto Man what is Man’s.” And, EVERYONE of us is worthy to know Christ and partake of everlasting life.
      God and Jesus did not mean for people to be telling other people “Don’t be judgemental, or, none of us is worthy”, those are judgemental words. God just wants us to be good to each other. Pray for the man to be forgiven by God for I fear man never will. He made us in his image………..not exactly like him. He let us be imperfect, have strong emotions, and sometimes be judgemental. We are humans.
      I will get off my soap box and say………..I don’t care how much he prays or cries for forgiveness, death is his only salvation on this earth. Amen

      Yes, God can give forgivness and will be the ultimate judge, however, for now he must pay the price that man requires for justice, and hopefully he will never ever get a chance to harm any child again, period. You would shoot a rabid dog, why should he get any better treatment?

    Ok… Ok… Ok.. First off.. I want to say that this is a very very sick thing.. This has to be the up most disgusting thing I have ever read in my entire life and reading this entire story sets me in RAGE!! I cannot process the thought on what would possess someone to do anything like this to a child let alone a four month old right down to his own daughter. Its repulsive and sickening and I hope he rots in prison. He will seep through the cracks of the prison and be forgotten because anyone with any sense wouldn’t want to even remember a monster as him…… However, I must say that I have no problem with people and what they believe in…But if the almighty man in the sky exist.. How in the hell could he allow bad things such as this happen to any child? Most of the time when I hear bad things about a child or that a child had died from abuse etc.. etc.. and I hear people stand around and say that child is in a better place… Really??? Really??? My comment to that is .. Does anyone forget the fact of how the person died..????? If god was so wonderful and so powerful then why not make it a peaceful going why does people suffer.. Cancer.. Child abuse.. Diseases… Etc Etc….Now don’t take me wrong I would like to believe that after you die there is this wonderful place with the almighty god in it. Realization is their isn’t…and if I have to die like some people do to get to Heaven.. No Thank you I would take my one way ticket straight to hell!!!

    The world is inherently evil! God does not “allow” bad things to happen! God hates the evil that was done to this child. There is something wrong with this man for him to do what he did. I am glad I am not the one who will judge him. I pray that people look beyond the evil that was done to this child and show her the love she deserves as she grows up.

      There is God. He does everything for a reason. I dont know why, but he had a reason. Its not right what the guy did, and he should burn in Hell. However, God has more power than you or I could ever imagine. I’m sure he is going to use this to change somebody’s life.

    I know this man from a past life, in HS. He’s a good man, in troubled times. No excuse for his actions, but he is still a human being, and one of God’s children. He knows he was wrong, and knows he must suffer the consequences. But to wish such heinous things be done to him (previous comments) is simply lowering yourself to his level. Pray for him, and pray for his family. But please do not wish ill will towards him or judge him. Only God can do so… Lets hope God works within his heart to truly repent his sins..
    God Bless You All!

Men like this should be castrated and then put to death. If it was my little girl he had done it to – I’d do it myself and I AM a child of God!

    Cody,
    How does that fact that he is enduring “troubled times” have anything to do with what he did? You don’t force yourself on your child because you are going through troubled times. How does someone even conjure up the thought to do this to a 4 month old? Or any child? I see no good in this man at all.
