From the bored cops file.
Police in West Virginia have charged a man and his step daughter with incest despite the fact that they aren't related by blood and are both over the age of consent and they now face up to 15-years in prison.
Nicholas County authorities charged Kelcey Nicholas, 28 and his 21-year-old stepdaughter Lataura Jarrett with incest after Sheriff David Hopkins decided to cite the inclusive definition of 'daughter' in state law.
Nicholas married Jarrett's mother five years ago and authorities allege that she calls him 'father', and the pair were arrested having sex after Sgt. W.K. Shafer and State Police Cpl. D.P. White traveled to their home on September 19th to arrest Nicholas for a home confinement charge.In West Virginia if you get divorced, are you still cousins? I'm very much in favor of traditional marriage. I support it, as a legal concept, as a church concept and as the corner stone of civilization. Heterosexual monogamous marriage, RAH, RAH, RAH! Go nuclear family! Make and raise babies! Yea procreation!
That said, the USA is full of sexual perversion. I would even go so far as to argue that those practices are damaging to our society. Fair enough? I think so. Does this situation rise to the level of needing police involvement? No.
Lets break it down:
5 years ago when Kelcey was 23 years old he married a women that was old enough to have a 16 year old daughter. The story doesn't tell us how old the mother was but assuming she had to be at least 13 to conceive that would make her at least 29 at the time and at least 34 now, but probably a couple of years older. Kelcey is a bit odd in wanting an older women, fair enough, not criminal. Today his "wife" no doubt looks older and less attractive and her daughter looks, I gonna say better. We've got pictures of the daughter but not the mom. Apparently the daughter is up for this sort of thing, no word on how mom feels. Kelcey is weird. Unless this fling has been going on for more than 3 years, Kelcey isn't a criminal. He is a weirdo, a pervert maybe, and a glutton for punishment if he is with both mom and daughter. I'm not fix'n to have him around my family, but that doesn't mean he should spend the next 15 years in jail.
