Kelcey Nicholas, 28, and Lataura Jarrett, 21, face up to 15 years in prison after being charged with incest, but they aren't related by blood. Nicholas is married to Jarrett's mother, and Nicholas County, West Virginia Sheriff David Hopkins says that state law defines it as incest if a stepparent and stepchild have sex, which is just what officers say they caught them doing when they went to arrest Nicholas for a home confinement violation.
