Crime & Punishment: Bethel Man Accused of Incest, Pornography With His Daughter
George Sayers, Jr. of Bethel allegedly fathered a son with his 23-year-old daughter Tiffany Hartford and also created explicit videos and photos meant to jump-start the porn career Hartford apparently wanted. The whole ordeal was uncovered when Sayers, 46, allegedly sold a video (for $40 a copy) of a sexual encounter between Hartford and a female friend without the friend's permission. The woman contacted police. In the investigation, police uncovered the incest, which was confirmed by DNA testing on Hartford's 2-year-old son. Sex with a blood relative falls under the definition of third-degree sexual assault in Connecticut; both father and daughter were charged. Hartford's mother told the Danbury News-Times she moved back to Bethel in 2006 so Hartford could get to know her father, adding she "hoped that he had bettered himself, but that was not the case." Um, yeah and then some. Even John Waters would be creeped out by these people.
