Woman Who Had Sex With Her Dad And Then Married Him Avoids Jail

Woman Who Had Sex With Her Dad And Then Married Him Avoids Jail

A woman who allegedly had sex with her own father before marrying him has avoided a jail sentence after their romps were reported - by her mum.

Samantha Kershner, 21, got married to Travis Fieldgrove, 40, in Adams County, Colorado, following 'jealous competition' between her and her half-sister, reports FOX10.

Kershner and her father were both charged with incest after being accused of having sex in two counties within Nebraska.

Kershner, from Grand Island, Nebraska, pleaded no contest - a plea where the defendant accepts the conviction but doesn't admit guilt - to a misdemeanour charge of false reporting. She was sentenced to nine months' probation.

On the other hand, Fieldgrove was jailed last month for two years after also pleading no contest to attempted incest, according to Metro.

The publication reported that the pair also face incest charges in Adams County - where they tied the knot last October.

It is believed Kershner is further accused of making false statements under oath.

Kershner was interested to find out who her biological father was at the age of around 17 and her mother introduced her to Fieldgrove, telling her it was her dad.

NTV reported that evidence suggests that Fieldgrove and Kershner were aware of the biological relationship before it moved forward and they quickly married when they found out that their relationship was being investigated.

Documentation supplied by the court shows DNA tests indicated that the probability of Fieldgrove being Kershner's dad is 99.9 per cent.

In a police interview, it is believed that Kershner said her motivation to have sex with her dad stemmed from a 'jealous competition with her half-sister' about who could have sex with him first.

Marriage licensing requirements at the Adams County Courthouse indicate that both parties applying for a marriage certificate must give the names of both parents before being approved but Fieldgrove wasn't listed on her birth certificate.

Kershner has a hearing set for July 16 with a jury trial arranged for 19 August. NTV reported that Fieldgrove's case in Adams County has not yet moved forward pending his Hall County prison sentence.
