Apart from providing for their daily needs, parents also have the duty to correct their children and make sure that they grow up to be good, responsible adults. It’s never an easy job, particularly if your child starts to oppose your teachings.
Now imagine the shock and surprise of one father when he found naked photos of a sleeping 2-year-old girl on his teenager son’s phone. What would you do if you were in his place? Well, he took matters into his own hands and instantly reported his boy to the police!
Paul Spensberger, the father, reported his son Andrew, 17, to the authorities after discovering child porn on his phone.
According to Paul, the two photos were taken at close range and featured a 2-year-old relative of Andrew’s girlfriend. The toddler was sleeping when she was photographed. Paul saw the images after he seized the boy’s phone for bad behaviour.
In an interview with DailyMail, Paul said he was “disgusted” by the images and felt it necessary to contact the police right away.
Meanwhile, Andrew defended that he intended to sell the photos to a paedophile high school classmate.
Andrew said he was hoping to sell the pictures for $350. In spite of his explanation, Paul still called the authorities and Andrew ended up getting arrested on charges of felony child pornography.
Now Andrew is in the county jail with a bond of $10,000. His father refuses to pay it!
“He feels like s***. He feels remorse and he is scared, he’s facing time in prison. I could go and get him but he needs to learn.”
In the past, Andrew have had several cases of stealing.
Paul shared he believes his story that he really planned to sell the photos and not use it for himself. He further commented:
“Andrew is a thief but he is not sexual like that.
“He was in a bind [for money] … and I have no doubt there are kids at his school that would buy s*** like that.”
Meanwhile, Paul has contacted the toddler’s family and they said they’ve already forgiven Andrew.
If convicted, Andrew is facing a possible 4-year-imprisonment. Paul, on the other hand, still has not decided whether to hire him a lawyer or not.
