Alabama Brother, Sister Arrested for Incest

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.

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.

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.

If a man and woman get a divorce in Alabama, are they still brother and sister?

This one is way too easy to hit out of the park. But I thought this was usually an Arkansas and Kentucky thing...

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.

Interesting that I just freep malied someone and used this example of incest as why homosexual acts should not be condoned.

Why not just let it happen if they love each other...they're not hurting anyone.

From evolution into convolution...

Well wait a minute now - these people are from Alabama - how do we know that they are really brother and sister - besides Bubba Billy Clinton taught us that sex is a private matter.

What if 2 brothers were going at it - wouldn't it be their civil right?

It is, but in those states they still need to be married first. :)

Well, Biblical injunctions aside, is there anything in this damnable current secular philosophy that would proscribe this as an action? The left champions gay marriage, and NAMBLA and its child sex philosophy, so what's next? Brother/sister incest? Sure. Why not polygamy and polygyny? Group and line marriages? Why not animals?

Since morality is relative, and laws are man made, the old saying is definitely appropriate: With God, anything is possible; without God, anything is permissible.

Now, if this woman beats the rap, and ends up marrying the sheriff's spokesman, she'd be Lori Ann Rotton-Christian.

When I was studying for the bar, one of the lecturers was discussing other state bars. He said the West Virginia bar is tough, because they ask, "If a husband and wife divorce, are they still brother and sister?"

ROLL TIDE!
Heh.

My first thoughts too. Watch the ACLU come in, backed by the "it's just about sex" crowd, get a sympathetic judge, and set a precedent for legal incest nationwide.

It was in the military announcements in my local paper some years back. Poor fella.
