Child Abuser or Merely a Cheater? Or Innocent?

This news report is woefully lacking in information. Please see what I’ve written about reports like this. Michael Kimball of Great Falls, Montana is charged with two counts of incest.

Court documents state that Kimball committed various sexual acts with one of his children over a period of six years.

The article never gives the age of his child. Someone’s child can be an adult.

The victim told police the first incident occurred in late summer 2005, and that sexual intercourse occurred two to three times per week from February 2007 to July 2010.

Kimball also requested the victim send him nude photos and explicit videos.

This indicates to me that he wasn’t living with his child.

According to the affidavit, Kimball admitted having sex with the victim when confronted by his wife.

So is his wife the mother of his child? Did she turn him in? Was she protecting her minor child, or confronting her husband about his cheating (with an adult relative?) The former should mean a severe prison sentence. The latter, while not something I support because of the cheating, should not be a crime.

UPDATE: The suspect killed himself.
