Dad Arrested for Taking Daughter’s Phone as Punishment.

I'll summarize.

Baby daddy takes phone away from daughter because she was up to some kind of monkey business. Baby mommy says "Hell naw. I paid for that phone, you dont have a right to take it" and calls the police.

Baby mommy is also married to a cop.

The police show up at baby daddy's house and demand that he return the phone to the daughter and baby mommy. Baby daddy says "F you. Youre not going to tell me how to discipline my daughter".

3 months go by and baby daddy gets a citation in the mail for theft of property. He was offered a plea deal but turned it down and instead hired a lawyer and demanded a jury trial.

For some reason, a few months later, a warrant is issued for baby daddy's arrest and shortly thereafter he's arrested at his home at 2am.


After just a two-day trial — in which Jackson’s daughter, now 15, testified — Dallas County Criminal Court Judge Lisa Green ordered the jury to find Jackson not guilty, citing insufficient evidence to prove a theft charge.



Theres way too many police and theres a serious lack of any real crime. Only thing left to do is harass the average citizen.

Don't be surprised if he's set up for raping a prominent female figure in the community in the coming weeks.

A part of me died reading this.

hmm...yup it was the last bit of hope for this world.

It's good it was thrown out, but the fact it got to that point is beyond madness.

If the mother paid for the phone, then the mother owns the phone ...not the daughter, not the father. If, at the mother's request, the father did not return the phone to the legal owner of the phone (the mother), then that is absolutely theft.

However, I do agree with the father's actions and am glad to see that he took this to trial and got the case tossed.

What a horrible excuse for a cop and what a horrible mother.

That's ludicrous, the officer involved should be charged with wasting tax payers money and made to pay it back after he gets his ass fired......

My ex's new boyfreind got involved in my relationship with my daughter and did nothing but cause trouble, i have no time for morons who get involved in family business that has nothing to do with them,it is detrimental and like in many cases that moron is no longer on the scene,as far as im concerned only losers get involved in these type of scenarios ...

I agree completely. The phone wasn't his. He took it. That's theft. He should have thought a little more about how to punish his daughter and remain within the law.

Wow, two adults unable to settle something so simple!!
And the police! Surely they should have said "Its domestic: Get some counseling""

Excellent points.

It should of never gotten to this extreme though.

Both parents should of been able to communicate and resolve the issue.

Yet another object lesson in how the messes that result from divorce hurt everyone involved.

What does anyone want to bet he is still paying child support and that part of that went to help pay for the phone everyone here is claiming mama paid for?

Yes, absolutely!

Not always easy with split parenting - - but, laws are laws. He took property that was not his.

I know about staying in touch with a teenager via her phone. I'd be pissed too. The dad had no right. Basically he cut off contact between the mother and daughter.

There are parents together who use their kids as pawns.

There are divorced parents who work together in the best interest of their kids.

Divorce is not always wrong.

Although Jackson won the case and is allowed to keep the phone, he said he has had to separate himself from Steppe and his daughter because of this incident. “I can’t ever have a relationship with them again,” he said.


What a crying shame. Sounds to me like both Parents need to go someplace and learn how to be Parents. I feel like he did the right thing or at least that he does but he should have returned the phone to her Mother and the two should have worked it out between but now this is going to ruin the relationship between him and his daughter. Just sad that they cant be adults and worked it all out before it ever got to this point.

Technically the mother was within her rights, and technically the father should have relinquished the phone when she asked, it's easy to see that these two won't be winning parents of the year awards. The father does seem to be trying to give his kid some discipline and grounding, but he did take it a little too far.

If two parents are working together in the best interests of their kids, then why are they divorced?

Seriously? It belonged to his daughter and he didn't steal it from her, he took it from her as punishment.

People these days...

He didn't have a phone the mom could call to get in touch with the daughter?

I'm perfectly capable of reading and understanding the story, thank you.

There are many ways he could have punished his daughter without taking her property. We don't know the whole story here, but the parents need to work together. It's not surprising that they are divorced, as they apparently haven't learned HOW to work together yet.

or more likely they will find a bunch of kiddie porn on his computer placed there no doubt by his daughter looking to get revenge.
It might be wise for him to not let the mother or daughter into his house for a long while.
