Oh Lord, Fritch Man Arrested for Taboo Relationship
This story is one of love. Love that is unconditional.
Love that has gone entirely too far.
A man in Fritch was arrested last night on charges of Prohibited Sexual Conduct w/ Ancestor/Descendant. Not one count...but TWO counts.
Now, as sad as it sounds, we hear about this happening far more than we ever should. However, it has a tendency to be wrapped around cousins, nieces/nephews, etc. Even stepchildren.
Joshua Cormack allegedly decided to level up on all that though...by sleeping with his own blood daughter. Yes, you read that right. BLOOD daughter.
The definition of prohibited sexual contact in the state of Texas is this:
(a) A person commits an offense if the person engages in sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse with another person the actor knows to be, without regard to legitimacy:
(1) the actor's ancestor or descendant by blood or adoption;
(2) the actor's current or former stepchild or stepparent;
(3) the actor's parent's brother or sister of the whole or half blood;
(4) the actor's brother or sister of the whole or half blood or by adoption;
(5) the children of the actor's brother or sister of the whole or half blood or by adoption; or
(6) the son or daughter of the actor's aunt or uncle of the whole or half blood or by adoption.
I mean, that covers a lot of different types of relationships. I can see how SOME of those could be misinterpreted. No, I wouldn't be one not to understand any of those, but I think common sense would tell ANYONE that your blood daughter kind of falls in that.
When Cormack's mugshot was posted on the Hutchinson County Mugshots page on Facebook, people had an absolute field day. Here are just a few of the comments people made:
