Ghosthunter Dad Accidentally Films His Girlfriend And Son Having Sex

Ghosthunter dad accidentally films his girlfriend and son having sex

In a bid to capture ghosts on a rigged-up camera, a father from Tasmania instead caught his girlfriend making love to his teenage son.

Surely a vision that will haunt him for a very long time!

The dad was convinced his home was in the grip of supernatural spirits so he set up the camcorder in his kitchen, pressed record and went to work.

But when he returned to view the footage his paranoia turned to horror as he watched his partner of 11 years enter the room and begin canoodling with his 16-year-old son.

The 28-year-old woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, pleaded guilty at Australia's Supreme Court to five counts of sex with a minor, claiming she hadn't realised 16 was below the age of consent.

The court heard how the affair began when she went into the teenager's bedroom weeks earlier to discuss his driving lessons. But the conversation soon turned to tickling, then kissing, cuddling and sex, the court heard. She later took the boy to a hotel where they had sex several times.

The boy's father was so angry when he saw the pair petting in his haunted kitchen, he confronted his partner about what he had seen but she downplayed it as an innocent cuddle.

But his son told a different story, admitting they had had sex on several occasions.

The man called the police and his girlfriend was duly arrested.

Justice David Porter remanded the woman in custody and will sentence her on Monday.
