‘He’s not my type’: How a former escort helped bring her father back to life
When the former escort Sara Finkman began working with her father, Steve, in 2007, she was barely out of her teens.
Steve was an aspiring musician and aspiring model who had moved to Los Angeles from Texas in 1996 to start his own business.
His life had changed drastically from when she and her mother had moved into their home in suburban Houston when Steve was a toddler.
Steve had become a devout Jehovah’s Witness and had lost all of his friends and family when he left the cult after a failed stint as a military officer in Iraq.
He was living in the middle of nowhere, living in an RV and spending his days driving a pickup truck with no income and no family, Sara Finkleman told me.
The only people she knew were her parents and her brother.
He had lost his job and his girlfriend.
He would often go out for drinks, and Sara would come home to find him in bed with his computer.
She said that it was like being with a friend who was dead.
“He was a very sweet, gentle, caring person,” Sara Finkerman said.
“But the abuse began very early on.
He raped me.”
Finkmans story is heartbreaking.
She remembers the first time she went to see her father in the hospital.
She told him that her mother was the one who brought her home after Steve died.
Fink and Steve had a falling out, Sara told me, and he began molesting her, then assaulting her again and again.
The assaults escalated, and Steve and Sara got divorced in 2013, and they moved in with their mother, who was now living in Florida.
“I had a hard time getting to know my father,” Sara said.
Steve Fink is now 74, and his last known address is a strip mall in Houston.
He died in 2013.
Sara Finks story, like many others, is far from over.
Sara is still recovering from the trauma of what happened to her and her father.
But the healing process began slowly.
Her mother began counseling her and helped her to understand the gravity of the situation, she said.
Sara has spoken out about her father’s crimes to a handful of media outlets, but they have yet to get any press coverage.
So Fink now has her own media team dedicated to bringing her story out.
Sara and her daughter now live in a small house in Houston with her mother.
But she said she still struggles to come to terms with the abuse.
“For the most part, I’m just numb.
I’m so numb that I can’t do anything about it,” she said, tears streaming down her face.
Finklemans story began when she was 19.
She was living at her fathers house when she met her future husband, Steve Finkle, and two of their friends, two women in their 20s.
She worked as an escort for Steve, a wealthy Houston real estate developer who also was an ordained Baptist minister.
Sara knew both of them as friends, and she liked them both.
She thought they were cool and charismatic.
“They were my friends,” she told me in an interview at her home in the Houston suburbs.
“My friends were all the cool kids.”
Sara Fisk met Steve Ficken on the dating app Grindr, where he was posting pictures of women with the hashtag #honey, she told The Washington Times.
She met them at a bar in downtown Houston, where they had an intense conversation about how Steve was going to meet someone new.
Sara told her father that she wanted to go to work for him, and that she was ready to be his sex slave.
“We just had this really weird conversation,” Sara told The Times.
“You know, he was saying that he had a lot of money, and I said, ‘Well, I don’t think I can have that.’
He said, and then I said that I wanted to work with him, too.”
They were married in September 2015.
The couple met at a gay bar in Houston’s Warehouse District.
Sara took Steve to the bathroom and got him undressed.
Sara said that she would wear nothing but her panties to work.
Sara was also naked when they had sex.
Steve brought Sara home with him to his apartment, where Sara Ficken said she was in a bathtub with a towel over her head.
Steve said he would strip Sara naked and put her in the bathtub while he watched.
He also took her clothes off, and when he finished, she could see his penis through her underwear.
Steve told her that he would do whatever she wanted, but that he did not want to hurt her.
She would scream and cry and yell.
Steve would then turn on the water and force her to do it, Sara said in her interview with The Times, because she was afraid he would rape her.
Sara screamed and yelled.
She screamed and cried again when Steve took her into his bedroom and raped her.
He told her she
