Some forms of drugs and sex remain illegal.
In Texas, a half-brother and sister arrested for meth possession were also slapped with “prohibited sexual conduct” after making out in jail.
The sad tale is chronicled by the Montgomery County (Texas) Police Reporter, and goes something like this:
Charlene Marie Ellet was detained at a Houston-area Wal-Mart for shoplifting. She told police she and her 2-year-old twins were driven to the store by her brother, Cameron Beck, 26.
Police were given consent to search Beck’s car and found a light bulb and “cut pen” containing meth crystals. I guess meth is smoked in light bulbs until LEDs take over completely.
Beck and Ellet admitted to smoking the drug.
Ellet was charged with shoplifting and both were charged with meth possession.
At jail, things got weird when police noticed the two, held in adjoining cells, were making out between the bars.
Upon questioning, Ellet told police she and Beck have the same mother and had been involved in a sexual relationship since Beck was let out of prison in 2013.
Ellet told police the relationship got serious when they started exchanging letter while Beck still in prison. She said the family shared a hotel room and all slept in the same bed.
Jail records say Beck uses the aliases “Monkey,” “Savage,” “Psyko” and “Taco.”
Jail records indicate Ellet was charged Monday for choking a family member, presumably while still in jail.
The good news? Since the twins are 2, they are likely not Beck’s.
The bad news? Everything else you just read.
