Stepdad Who Caught Boyfriend Having Sex With Daughter Held on Attempted Second-degree Murder Charges

 

The stepfather of a sixteen year old girl who discovered his step daughter having sex with her 18 year old boyfriend is being held on charges of second degree attempted murder after shooting the boyfriend.

The 16-year-old girl's stepfather apparently walked in on the young couple and loaded a gun shooting the boyfriend 4 times.

Neighbors said the Step father Wade Edwards, 41, may have "overreacted" but agreed that they understood how he wanted to protect his stepdaughter.

  Protect?  
 
A 16 year old can consent to sex so unless he was raping her, the step-father was not "protecting" her from anything.

qwerty- She may be able to give consent under federal law, but each state also have their own consent laws, so the consent laws are not simply a blanket age.

My husband is overprotective of our daughters and while it might be heard elsewhere that if you do this or that I´d kill you/him/her there are other things that you can do and still be within the law. As for the girl who knows what her mind is thinking at this point.

Age of consent in Florida is 16 if the other party is under 24. So she was able to consent.
And as for the neighbors...? What are they thinking? It is not protective to assault someone when both are consenting. Whether by a gun or your fists as some of them said he should have done.

  "Protect"  
 
That one word speaks volumes, doesn´t it? I mean, her boyfriend´s having sex with her, not beating her or something.

  @Hugo....  
 
Perhaps it´s just me but when I first read the title, I assumed the guy caught his boyfriend having sex with his step daughter.

That was quite confusing....

"qwerty- She may be able to give consent under federal law, but each state also have their own consent laws, so the consent laws are not simply a blanket age." HUH? I didnt understand what is your stance. Care to explain pls.
 
  by: skcusswentrohs     10/29/2009 05:39 AM     
  replies, my stance, hot air  
 
qwerty- You never said the law is 16 in Florida or any other state and the summary says nothing about which state it happened in. That is why it looked like you were using the federal as a blanket statement. Thank you for clearing it up for me. :-)

As for the comments about the neighbors and and a few others, like Ben mentioned ´protect´ I can´t speak for any of them, but if everyone that is commenting on here thinks back to how many movies(and there are A LOT) that has a scene were this is either threatened and others where the dad is shooting the gun and the kid is running away holding his clothes in his hands? I can think of at least 10 movies that have something like that and ranging from comedy to drama to action flicks just in a few minutes. And before someone asks, no I am not giving my stance on this either it is just a few points to what may be the reason the neighbors aren´t upset and some even backing the guy.

The father feels like he is protecting his virginal little girl and little girls never have sex, especially in their parent´s home and in their own bedroom. It is antiquated and most parent´s can get the caught boy or girl to leave without even having to aim a gun at them.

Now comes my stance so skcuss get out the notebook so you can drill me on it. ;-)There are many better ways to handle catching your child in bed having sex with someone no matter if it is hetero or same sex. If it was me and after I calmed down from the initial anger I felt: having sex period is upsetting, but in my house, and in my house where the other parent could claim I allowed it? Hell no. Once calm I would have both of them sit down with me and my husband to find out how long this has been going on, how serious the relationship is(FWB or commited), if they have been using protection and if not they need to fix that fast(don´t want either to catch anything)and setting some rules down would happen also like you are not having sex in my house anymore. I can´t stop them from having sex, they would just be sneaky about it, I would make sure they know I do not condone it and they need to respect my rules.



Skcuss-"HUH? I didnt understand what is your stance. Care to explain pls."

I didn´t give a stance at the time. I made a comment stating the difference between federal and state law. Care to explain why you are so concerned with my comment?
 
  by: TaraB     10/29/2009 03:29 PM     
  What  
 
a neighbors they are, how it´s possible to agree with protecting the step daughter this way.
 
  by: vizhatlan     10/29/2009 06:03 PM     
  @TaraB  
 
Whoops. :) That second part wasn´t aimed at you. It was more a rhetorical question. lol
 
  by: qwerty017   10/29/2009 06:07 PM     
  @TaraB  
 
Concerned?? OK. 1st off, I dont know if you are feeling attacked or is it just being confrontational, even when you are asked to explain, something that, was not understood.

Before opining, I chose to ask you, so that I can understand, which seems like ´Not a good Idea´

2nd if you think that there is no need to reply to your comment, or, any other comment made, perhaps stop commenting. This is what forums are for.
3rd. If you think that, I am trying to change the way you think, thats not my business, however I dont think if, one needs a megaphone to hear themselves.

Especially when they dont want their comment, to be questioned.

You drop a comment, later you explain, either you were tired, slept on the couch, did not think of what you were writing etc etc.

And even when you are sked to make clear later, you think someone is simply being arrogant, or hate you, or whatever. No, I asked you to expound simply out of respect and understanding, so that 1st, I get it, then I reply.

My concern is merely accomodating my thoughts, not to assert, or, correct and be repugnant. It seems like not a wise choice.

Stop ASS u ming. This is my exact point, you ASS ume, your comment will be rejected simply because, I am trying to be a smart ASS.

I can´t stop them from having sex, they would just be sneaky about it, I would make sure they know I do not condone it and they need to respect my rules."

Well said. It is a Moto to be cherished by all parents, since the idea is not shooting at someone, but rather educating both parties, to abstain from unwanted repercussions, such as diseases and pregnancy. You said it well.

  Wrong tool for the job  
 
If he shot the kid 4 times and he lived, he needed a bigger gun... or better aim.
 
  by: Tarheel68     10/29/2009 07:57 PM     
  I bet  
 
the stepdad was a "hands on" parent and didn´t like the boyfriend touching his "other" woman.

The danger of being accidentally shot with a bullet is a little bit more serious than being shot with sperm...

"Especially when they dont want their comment, to be questioned."

I never said that I didn´t want my comment to be questioned, I didn´t have a stance at that time, just a comment to qwerty. Then qwerty replied to my reply and I replied and even put a smiley at the end of my reply and qwerty replied again and all is well.

"You drop a comment, later you explain, either you were tired, slept on the couch, did not think of what you were writing etc etc."
That has happened a few times other than the slept on the couch comment since my bed is the couch. It wasn´t meant as an excuse it was what happened and I apologized for it. I guess that I shouldn´t explain or apologize for something I did wrong. I was raised to take responsibility for my actions, even if they end up being a mistake or something I didn´t recall doing.

"Stop ASS u ming. This is my exact point, you ASS ume, your comment will be rejected simply because, I am trying to be a smart ASS."

Talk about ASSuming, I put a wink there because I was joking. Also my reply to you was honest because I had not give my stance at that time I posted at 10/28/2009 08:56 PM. I didn´t give my stance until 10/29/2009 03:29 PM because the first thing I thought was I´d kill them both, but that would be a reply that was empty and in anger so I decided to not give an emotional reply.

Since you had your little rants and told me what is wrong with me and what I am thinking about, doing and I am an ASS I hope letting it out made you feel better.

OMG!! "Since you had your little rants and told me what is wrong with me and what I am thinking about, doing and I am an ASS I hope letting it out made you feel better."

I, deny the calling you an ASS. If I would simply think of calling you that, I would probably apologize.
to myself first.
I would not dare call you an ass! Please dont say that I did. ASS U ME. When written sarcastically, it only means It makes an Ass of U and ME when we Assume, not that I called you an ASS.

You are a mother, a woman, someones wife, someones sister and a daughter to a father. I would not, never. How would I dare.

If you think that, thats what I called you, I honestly apologize, and please accept this as sincere apology.

I may disagree with you, which is what makes this place inetresting, if I would rant and simply resort to name calling, it would be stooping to the lowest possible.

I am so, sorry, thats how it appeared.

I would like to thank you for not only messaging me, but to also post it here. Like I said in messages I do accept your apology and like I said there has been a lot of tension going on th last few weeks. I´m not mad and I hold no grudges.

I think that politics and religion both seem tame compared to someone who catches a child in a position like the summary and parents start getting tense just thinking about their children in a similar situation.

Well... you´re a stand up guy. That being said.. she can be an ass on occasion. :P

(braces for 35 paragraph rant)

  @ Tara  
 
May I ask why you would be so angry at the situation given in the summary? I honestly don´t understand.

I first had sex when I was sixteen with my boyfriend, who was seventeen (as it happens, six years later, we are engaged and about to buy our first house but it would make no difference if that weren´t the case) so not too dissimilar to the situation in the summary. We had sex in his room in his parents´ house and in my room in my parents´ house. I would have been outraged if my parents had forbidden it to take place in their house. I was of the legal age of consent and so, to be frank, it wasn´t any of their business whether I was engaging in sexual activities (as much as I love my parents). To their credit, they didn´t get involved at all except when my mum - at my request - took me to the doctor to go on the pill.

Being at the age of consent does not give one license to behave any way they choose in the home of someone else.

From a legal standpoint, you were in your parents´ house... not yours.

As an example... At 41, I am of legal age to smoke, yet my parents don´t smoke and do not want smoking to take place in their home. I don´t live with them, but even if I did, should I have the right to light up in their home based simply on the fact that I´m old enough to do so?

  BB!  
 
According to djskagnetti I need to give a 35 paragraph rant. I think I am just going to laugh at what you said instead since I know what you meant.

djskagnetti-Sorry you braced youself for nothing.
 
  by: TaraB     10/31/2009 05:56 AM     
  Of course Tara.  
 
You understand that we can all be asses on occasion. I would never be comfortable saying that about you if I wasn´t prepared to admit of of myself...

skagnatti on the other hand.. should be beaten half to death, twice, for his uncouth comment. :)

I´d be glad to explain why I´d be angry, thank you for asking.

I have started and erased a few times, I don´t want to be too long. I was given very few rules when I was a teenager, but that was because I did follow the ones I was given. My parents worked hard for their home and for my basics in life, they were very open and honest about sex and that I could ask anything with them telling me what I wanted to know. They had one rule about sex and that was I was not allowed to have sex in their house. They offered to make sure I had condoms and the pill to prevent pregnancy and disease but no sex at home.

I respected that rule and I would have never thought about being outraged or to tell them to mind their own business. If I ever would have told my parents tough shit I wanted to and was going to have sex in my own room the reply would be I needed to find my own place and pay my own bills.

One may be able to legally have sex at 16, but they are still a minor by law for everything else and their parents are still responsible for them and their actions. I am not condoning or approving of my children having sex in their room while turning my back to it just because they CAN have sex legally. It is all about respect and if a parent doesn´t care if their children are having sex in their house that is up to them, but in my house I pay the bills to feed, clothe, insure, and have a safe and healthy upbringing. It is not mine or any other parent´s duty to stand aside and allow our children to tell US how to do things.
