38-year-old David Courson of Monticello, Florida, has been charged with manslaughter in the January death of his 6-year-old daughter Becca. Police allege that Courson was letting a 13-year-old drive his truck when the accident happened. They say that Courson was drunk and liquor, weed and what sounds like to me were homemade redneck fireworks, i.e., a bomb.
And oh yeah the 13-year-old was not his daughter but he’s been arrested for allegedly having sex with her.
With Courson’s wife listening in court on Monday, the prosecutor read some of those messages including one from Courson to the girl about his wife.
“I think she’s jealous of you, you’re everything she is not…pretty, sexy and smart,” said the message.
There was also this exchange between Courson and the girl about their sexual encounter and what Courson’s wife would think about it.
“If she knew what had happened in her bed she would need counseling,” said Courson. “It was on her side of it too,” the girl replied. “Ha, ha, ha all she would need is sound effects,” Courson replied.
So drunk redneck letting his 13-year-old squeeze drive the truck that killed his daughter. Did I forget anything? Oh yeah. His wife may or may not be standing by her man.
Following his arrest last month his wife told us she was supporting her husband.
After court, we asked her if she still was and she referred us to David’s lawyer.
If this story was any more classy I’d have to rent a tux.
This story makes me want to break out the old chestnut of you need a license to own a dog but any idiot can have a kid.
Thanks to Cynthia for the tip.
