Harold English, who recently got out of prison, moved in with his mother in the town of Bristow. His mother's property is next to his victim’s home, KFOR-TV reported Tuesday. English, who is the victim's step uncle, was convicted in 2015 of molesting the girl when she was little.

“When you have to see it, I can only imagine what it does to my daughter when she’s there and she has to witness it,” the victim's mother told the station. “She shouldn’t have to. Very heartbreaking.”
