Step-father and adult step-daughter arrested for incest have never been to Motherwell
IS is legal to have sex with your step-father? We mean consensual adult sex, not abuse.
Authorities in Nicholas County, West Virginia, say that it isn’t. They’ve charged a step-father and his step-daughter with incest. The suspects are not related by blood. They are both above the age of consent. And it’s not quite as creepy as you might suppose: Mr Kelcey Nicholas (above) is 28; Lataura Jarrett, his stepdaughter, is 21. Kelcey has been married to Lataura’s mother for five years.
Police know the pair were sleeping together. They saw them together when they went to arrest Nicholas on another matter at his home. Lataura lives with her husband elsewhere. She moved out at age 16.
The cops consulted the rule books. They found that, according to state law, “daughter” means the natural daughter of a person’s husband or wife, including a person’s adoptive children.
Nicholas and Jarrett have been charged with seven counts of incest. If found guilty they each face between 5 and 15 years in prison.
It’s not incest, is it. This is incest, as enacted in Motherwell station…
