Woman faces prison time after beating son for engaging in gay sex act

Thursday, March 7, 2013

FOREST HILL, Texas — A Texas woman is facing felony charges for badly beating her 15-year-old son after she caught him receiving oral sex from a male cousin last December.

Police in Forest Hill have charged Erica Moore with assault with bodily injury to a family member and felony child abuse after she admitted to beating her son with with an electrical cord.

Moore said it is a form of discipline she was taught, and that she “doesn’t believe in homosexuality.”

“My cousin at the time, he was 18. My son, he was 15, and I had walked in the room on [my cousin] giving oral sex to my son and I started whooping my son, and I’m the one who got in trouble as a result of me whooping him,” Moore told KTVT-TV.

“The police department told me that it was consensual, but they was committing a homosexual act in my house and we are totally against that. So I whooped my son, and about three or four months later they came and arrested me for abuse,” she said.

A spokesperson for the Forest Hill Police department said that the incident was brought to their attention after the boy’s grandmother had taken him to a local hospital.

The staff there alerted Texas Child Protective Services who launched an investigation.

Police officials said that Moore’s actions went beyond legally acceptable standards of discipline as she caused bleeding and leaving marks on the boy’s thighs, forearms, hands, torso and back.

While not commenting on the specifics of the case, Marissa Gonzales, a spokesperson for Child Protective Services said, “If you are leaving the child with severe injuries or bruises, then obviously we might be talking about abuse.”

A spokesperson for the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office declined to comment saying that there is still an active investigation into the matter, but did acknowledge that Moore faces prison time if convicted.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 4:59pm
  17. She deserves to go to prison for child abuse – the fact that she justified it because he was engaging in a gay sex act makes it a hate crime.

  21. Mother is wrong for beating her son but gay incest is just nasty! I could see why Republicans equate homosexual sex to incest.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:04pm
  22. wow. If she was my mom I would be going to prison.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:05pm
  23. THIS WAY OF THINKING HAS GOT TO STOP! Let people be who they want to be.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:05pm
  25. Hope she rots. Shouldn’t have barged in on the poor boy, where is the privacy? Dumb cunt doesn’t deserve a son when so many good people can’t have one.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:05pm
  26. She was mad her son was gay but not because he’s engaging in incest? What kind thinking does she have. Either way, it’s no grounds to get violent but I hope she goes to jail. What a nut case.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:13pm
  27. WTF….no she should not beat him for being gay….but she should have beat the fuck out of him for getting a blow job from his cousin.

  30. No tolerance for Violence. Regardless if its incest, homosexuality or any other thing.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:27pm
  31. She should stay in prison, too. The 15 year old should be taken permanently away from that witch.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:31pm
  32. Yep, sounds like something that only happens in good ole cowpoke Texas!! State where the Bushs and the Perrys live……..REDNECK COUNTRY…LMAO!!

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:32pm
  33. I agree with Ricardo Fondeur! I don’t agree with incest either, but causing serious physical harm to someone is NEVER acceptable.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:39pm
  34. Only in Texas I swear and the south would this happen

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:44pm
  35. This shit happened in Los Angeles too people. Texas has been wonderful to me, my wife and our daughter. Please don’t make yourselves sound as ignorant as the bitch in this story.

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:54pm
  36. OMG! A cousin though? WOW!

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:55pm
  37. beating never solves anything

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 5:57pm
  38. Can she seriously not figure out why she got arrested?

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:00pm
  39. oy

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:00pm
  40. Incest it may be, it’s still a personal choice, not a crime and certainly not abuse-worthy. He could have been a third-cousin twice removed, we can’t know and can’t judge that. But we can judge the terrible actions of his “mother” [egg-doner].

  41. Parents who hurt their kids like this do not deserve to be blessed with children.

  42. This woman should learn how to speak correctly before she passes judgement

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:02pm

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 7:19pm
  46. good….hope she rots in there

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 7:23pm
  47. Since the article doesn’t mention incest, I’m guessing they’re not blood relatives I hope and also it’s not considered incest if it’s your second cousin.

  48. She will get raped in jail and that is fine with me

    Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 8:34pm
