Christopher Buckner, 20, and her half-brother, Timothy Savoy, 25, have been arrested after admitting they had sex three times in a tractor trailer parked outside of a church. Brother and sister apparently told Effingham County, Ga. police that they decided to have sex after watching The Notebook.
Explains the Savannah Morning News: The spokesman said deputies answered a call at about 4:30 a.m. about a prowler in the area of Hester Road and Ga. 30.
As deputies were checking the area, they saw a man and woman walking down the road. The male said he was walking the female back to her house.
Deputies determined that the pair were brother and sister and that they had just had sex in a Kenworth tractor trailer, which was parked at Countryside Baptist Church, police spokesperson David Ehsanipoor said.
According to WJCL, the two were charged by police with incest, sodomy, and prowling.
And then there was this comment on the web that made me wonder:
If they are adults and this was completely consensual without any grooming on the older sibling’s part, I don’t see why this would be a crime. Sure, it’s gross to most of us, but grossness is not a legitimate baseness for legislation. If there is grooming on one sibling’s part, it would be a crime, but without that, what harm are they doing? Even if they had children, its not as if we ban people with known genetic disorders from having children, nor do we ban older people from having children (and an older woman has a far greater chance of a child with a genetic defect than she would have by having a child with her first cousin).
If it is shown to be completely consensual, the only crime should be for lewd behavior in a parking lot.
