'My Father Offered Me As A ‘Maiden' Sacrifice To An Alleged Cult Leader' (VIDEO)

Lindsay says that at age 13, she was chosen by alleged cult leader Victor Barnard to be one of his 10 “maidens” and she was expected to perform wifely duties for him, which included cooking, cleaning and having sex with him. For the next 10 years, Lindsay claims she was sexually abused by Barnard, who was captured in March 2015, faces 59 felony charges -- including criminal sexual conduct — and is awaiting extradition back to the U.S, and she blames her father, Carmen, for turning her over to this man. Carmen says he had no idea what his daughter was going through, because Barnard had such a mental hold on him. Lindsay finally confronts her father on Dr. Phil’s stage.

“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t count the cost of realizing that I take my full accountability and responsibility for what had taken place,” Carmen says. “I did not give a blessing or an OK.”

"You didn’t do your job as a father,” Lindsay says. “You abandoned me. You left me there for years. You saw me humiliated and kicked out of meetings in front of the whole church. I don’t understand why you keep saying you didn’t know what happened.”

Dr. Phil doesn’t think Carmen is taking full responsibility for his actions. “You cannot tell me that you became so blind that you let someone distort the scripture so badly that it made sense to you to turn your 13-year-old child over to this creep,” he says.

On his show Tuesday, Dr. Phil tries to help father and daughter establish a new relationship. And, hear from the co-founder of the alleged cult and what he says he witnessed. Click here to see where you can watch.
