Alabama Brother, Sister Arrested for Incest Mother Turned-In Siblings After Allegedly Catching Them Having Sex
TRAFFORD, Ala. (April 20) - A brother and sister were arrested on felony incest charges after the man's wife called sheriff's deputies, who allegedly caught the siblings having sex.
Ronald Stewart Howze, 44, of Trafford, and Lori Ann Rotton, 41, of Smyrna, Ga., were arrested around midnight on April 7, said Jefferson County sheriff's spokesman Randy Christian. They remain jailed Wednesday with bond set at $50,000 each.
If convicted, Howze and Rotton could each be sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Authorities said Howze's wife believed her husband and his sister were having sex so she called deputies. The wife let the officer into their trailer home, and the deputy saw the siblings having sex in a bedroom, Christian said.
The officer had to twice tell the couple to stop, and the officer's report quoted the man as saying "I guess I'm going to jail" after they finally complied, according to Christian.
Both brother and sister had been drinking, and Rotton was initially taken to a hospital because she appeared so intoxicated, Christian said.
The man told the officer he wanted to "go out crazy" after being diagnosed with cancer, The Birmingham News reported Wednesday.
Tommy McFarland, an attorney representing Howze, said his client told him he could not remember what happened. Howze said he suffers from seizures and asked to see a psychiatrist, according to McFarland.
Rotton is set to make her first court appearance Thursday.

I am so glad I am in Mississippi lol!!
Lori Rotton LOL
They should be arrested for unlawfully assisting in the promotion of a stereotype about people who live in trailer homes.
But they're consenting adults. Maybe they should move to Massachusetts.
Thankfully, this wasn't WV.
You might be a redneck if:
Your family tree has no branches.
You think a family reunion is a great place to pick up chicks.
There's one eyed cousin fornicating in New York too..all these blended families with young hormonal teenagers. Just guessing not accusing or anything.
If a man and woman get a divorce in Alabama, are they still brother and sister?
Rotton is aptly named.
"The wife let the officer into their trailer home, and the deputy saw the siblings having sex in a bedroom, Christian said. "
This one is way too easy to hit out of the park. But I thought this was usually an Arkansas and Kentucky thing...
One less joke for you to put up with.
I don't see any problem. Isn't this covered under Title 7 of the 1964 Civil Rights act?
Yikes. Ah, you know what they say about incest...it's best if you keep it in the family.
Why not just let it happen if they love each other...they're not hurting anyone.
From evolution into convolution...
Sex with your sister... yep, that's pretty damn crazy.
