A Texas man, whose name is being withheld for the safety of the minor was arrested on charges of a display of harmful marital charges, after being accused of showing his 17-year-old stepdaughter pornographic movies.
Apparently the stepfather wanted to start teaching the girl about sex, as she had recently started dating. She reportedly told him that she had no interest in sex. So he showed her two “soft romantic porn” videos, and he now faces a porn charge, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by the Star-Telegram on Tuesday.
He now faces a class A misdemeanor, for sale/distribution/display of harmful material to a minor.
The Star-Telegram states:
“[He] became concerned with her comments because during his first marriage, his wife had an issue with having sex,” according to the affidavit. “He didn’t want [his stepdaughter] to suffer from the same issues his ex-wife did.”
Police began an investigation in late December after receiving a call from the teenager, who is now 18, and her biological father.
The teen told police that her stepfather had been showing her pornographic videos on his desktop computer since August 2016, according to the affidavit.
He showed the videos at night as her mother slept in a bedroom. The Grapevine man would raise the volume on the television in the living room and call the teen to his office, the affidavit stated.
The teen estimated her stepfather showed her porn videos six to eight times from August to December 2016, according to the affidavit.
He also is accused of showing her a topless photo of her mother.
The teen told a detective that she explained to her stepfather that it was uncomfortable to watch those types of videos with him.
In January, the Grapevine man’s wife in an interview with police told officers she had confronted her husband and he admitted to showing the videos on two occasions.
