Barker – a married man with six children who has cerebral palsy – shared his mobile home with a friend, Joshua Holby, 31. And after apparently ushering Jasmine inside, Barker allegedly intimidated her with a firearm and tied her up. The police claim that he then proceeded to sexually assault her; Holby supposedly did not participate in the sexual abuse, though.
However, Barker – who was reportedly drunk and high on crystal meth – allegedly held Jasmine captive in the trailer and assaulted her numerous times. “I was usually in a closet,” Jasmine later told Fox 9. “And I usually stayed quiet because I was scared they might hit me or do something.” In fact, though, it is claimed that Barker and Holby attempted something far worse than hitting the girl. Several times, allegedly, they tried to take her life.
