This shouldn't be a crime, unless we are talking about abusing minors.A father and daughter are to go on trial accused of incest.
Fifty-year-old Frank Christopher Humphreys and his 22-year-old daughter Eleanor Jackson deny the charge and will go on trial later in the year at Carlisle Crown Court.Why is this a criminal matter?
The two, from Cleator Moor, are accused of consensual sex between December 2011 and February 2012.
Humphreys is accused of having sex with his daughter “knowing that she was related to you in that way.” Jackson faces a similar charge.
So who is the victim???
Both denied the offence when they appeared before magistrates in Workington.
The case was sent to Carlisle Crown Court to be next heard on September 30.
Carlisle is in Cumbria, England.
I wonder how this became a criminal matter? Did someone rat them out? I also notice she had a different last name. Is that a married name, or did she grow up apart from him, likely making this a matter of Genetic Sexual Attraction?
No matter who doesn't like the idea, these two should be free to love each other any way they want. Instead of being prosecuted, they should be offered marriage. What a waste of government resources this prosecution is. Outrageous.
