People v. Clements (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 4, 2021)

There's wasn't anything from the Ninth Circuit (at all) or the Court of Appeal until late this afternoon.  But then out came this one.  Which recounts events that I definitely hadn't seen before in a published opinion.

And I've seen a lot.

Here's the first paragraph of the statement of facts:

"In January 1988, Clements and her ex-husband located the victim at a juvenile facility in New Mexico. Clements and the victim, who were brother and sister, had been separated during childhood. The three traveled some and eventually settled in Texas, during which time sexual relations took place between Clements and the victim, and between all three at once."

I'm fairly confident that it's a super bad idea to have a three-way with your sibling.  Fairly.

Mind you, I didn't expect that the consequences of these consensual events would be that the sister and the ex-husband killed the brother.  But, yep, that's what in fact went down here.

More proof that you can see something new every day.
