  • Step-father shoots teen having sex with his daughter

    http://www.thegrio.com/news/stepfath...h-daughter.php

    He shot the kid 4 times. Did he go overboard?

    An Apopka, Florida teenager was shot four times after he was caught having sex with the shooter's daughter, police said.

    Officials said the 16-year-old girl's stepfather walked into the girl's bedroom and saw her having sex with her boyfriend. That's when Wade Edwards closed the door to load a gun and then fired at the boy, police said.

    "The stepfather walked up, brandished the handgun in a threatening manner and opened fire," a police officer said.

    The boy, 18-year-old Julian Harp, limped out to the front yard and called 911. Police said Edwards also called 911 and confessed to the shooting.

    Investigators said it was one of the most severe crimes of passion that they've worked.

    "In 13 years, I've never heard anything like this happening in this area," one investigator said.

    Neighbors said Edwards may have "overreacted" but said they understood that he wanted to protect his daughter.

    "It's a sad story, but I would do anything to protect my daughter," said neighbor Sean Gibbons.

    Harp was in the hospital Thursday night recovering from the gunshot wounds, police said.

    Protect his step-daughter who is having sex on her own choice eh.. Sounds like a problem with parenting in the first place.
    Been chatting to a girl online. She's funny, sexy and flirty. Now she tells me she is an undercover cop! How cool is that at her age!?

      I think that is a bit overboard.


      He also obviously needs range time.

          There is protecting your daughter, but then there is ruining your life and making her's much harder socially and emotionally.
          Life is what you make of it

            There is already case law on situations like this and I believe it doesn't work out well for the father.

                Wonder if he was still 'mounted' when he was shot. So what punishment did the daughter get?

                  It looks like the judge dismissed the charges because the shooter claimed he thought his daughter was being attacked. Sounds like he got a freebie from the judge considering this:

                  "“I thought it looked like something was going on like having sex, my daughter getting raped or killed or something like that,” he said."

                  Here's the whole story:

                  Man Who Shot Stepdaughter's Boyfriend Gets Immunity
                  Posted: 4:46 pm EDT April 14, 2010

                  APOPKA, Fla. -- An Apopka man who shot his stepdaughter's boyfriend got immunity from prosecution. The defense argued Wednesday afternoon, that Wade Edwards should never have been charged for shooting the young man after he caught him having sex with his stepdaughter.
                  WFTV reporter Melonie Holt was in court Wednesday when both Edwards and his stepdaughter testified. According to prosecutors, Edwards acted out of anger. But the Apopka dad has maintained that he acted in defense of his home.
                  After court, Edwards told WFTV he was glad it is over.
                  Wednesday afternoon, 41-year-old Wade Edwards took the stand to avoid a trial. The Apopka father was charged with second-degree attempted murder, attempted manslaughter and aggravated battery for shooting his 16-year-old stepdaughter's love interest.
                  In October of 2009, Edwards heard a noise, entered his stepdaughter’s bedroom and witnessed what he thought was an assault. He returned with a gun.
                  “I was trying to defend my daughter and my home,” Edwards told WFTV.
                  Edwards testified that when he shot Julian Harp, he had no idea the teen had been invited by his daughter.
                  “I thought it looked like something was going on like having sex, my daughter getting raped or killed or something like that,” he said.
                  Edwards interrupted a lover's tryst. According to investigators, Julian Harp was hit in the lower back, buttocks and twice in his left leg.
                  Edward's stepdaughter took the stand in her stepdad's defense.
                  “Was the only look you saw on his face fear?” stepdaughter Shaquan Galloway was asked in court.
                  “Yes,” she answered.
                  “The victim was leaving as Mr. Edwards started shooting. So, it's not the fact that he shot the man in his house, it's why he shot him,” Assistant State Attorney Nicole Pegues said.
                  Edwards admitted to struggling with the shooting.
                  "Have you never shot anybody before?" Defense Attorney Peter Zies said.
                  "I never had to shoot anybody before this," Edwards replied.
                  "Was it something that upset you a great deal having to do what happened?” Zies asked.
                  "Still does," he answered.
                  Late Wednesday afternoon, Judge Tim Shea sided with Edwards effectively ending the prosecution.

                    Wow. Was there a by the judge here, do you think?
                    There are basically two kinds of people in this world. Those that believe in the moon landing and those that don't.

                          At 16? No, not a problem with parenting, necessarily. Mine was just fine, but we don't always reflect our upbringing, you know.

                              How would the DA prove otherwise? Particularly if the girl wasn't going to testify.
