In a lawsuit filed last week, a Michigan man named Charlie is suing his parents after they destroyed his extremely valuable porn collection as reported by FOX 17. According to the report, “Charlie” recently moved to Indiana after living with his parents in Michigan for 10 months. In exchange for rent was able to do work around his parents’ home, a domestic situation forced him out in August 2017.
A few months later, his parents drove to his home in Indiana to deliver some belongings he left in their home and informed they destroyed more than 12 moving boxes full of adult films. Upset, he called the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office to file a report that estimated the value of his collection at $28,940.72. Charlie is suing his parents for $86,822.16 in damages.
“We counted twelve moving boxes full of pornography plus two boxes of sex toys as you call them. We began that day the process of destroying them and it took quite a while to do so,” his parents wrote in an email to their son.
Charlie was reportedly kicked out of high school and college for selling pornography to other students. He was warned by his father that if he ever found porn in his house again, he would destroy it. “Believe it or not, one reason for why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional health,” his father said. “I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine. Someday, I hope you will understand.”
