A 46-year-old Connecticut father and his 23-year-old biological daughter were arrested and charged with incest after it was discovered they were in a sexual relationship and the daughter had given birth to their child.
The incest was discovered after the woman’s former lover filed a complaint with police claiming that the father and daughter were selling naked pictures and sex videos of her without her permission.
George Sayers Jr. and his daughter Tiffany Hartford were charged with third-degree sexual assault after DNA tests proved they were father and daughter and also the parents of a child.
They were also charged with obscenity and conspiracy to commit obscenity.
Hartford’s girlfriend contacted police in February claiming her former lover and her father were selling pictures and videos of her having sex.
The woman, who has not been identified, said the pictures and videos were taken several years ago when she and Hartford were in a relationship when they were 16.
The original complaint said Hartford, of Nashville Road, in Bethel, and the complainant were in a relationship when they were teenagers and at the time, Hartford had introduced Sayers to the lover as her “husband/father.”
The complaint said while they were together the complainant knew her sexual encounters with Hartford, who is an aspiring adult film star, were being filmed by Sayers. The woman told police she became upset when she later found out that Sayers and Hartford were selling the videos for $40 and photos for $5 each without her approval.
When they were first interviewed, both Sayers and Hartford denied knowing they were father and daughter. Sayers told police Hartford was his brother’s daughter.
DNA test later proved they were father and daughter and Sayers was the biological father of Harford’s child.
They were arrested on Monday.
