Dad charged after showing son's sex tape

Posted November 21, 2008

— A man trying to defend his son from a rape allegation faces criminal charges after showing a sex tape to people, police said Friday.

Dwayne Anthony Frazier, 41, of 522 Siltstone Place, was charged with one count each of second-degree and third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and was released after posting a $25,000 bond.

Police were investigating a 16-year-old girl's report last week  that her ex-boyfriend had raped her when they learned a man was showing people in the community portions of a videotape depicting his son and the girl involved in a sex act, said Capt. Michael Williams of the Cary Police Department.

The tape was shown to an administrator at Panther Creek High School and to the mother of the girl's current boyfriend, Williams said.

The man was trying to defend his son's honor by showing the tape, Williams said, but he should have turned the tape over to police.

The rape case remains under investigation, he said.

    Obviously you can't fix stupid...it runs in the family. No wonder the kid thought it was ok.

    ok- so just for the sake of an arguement- say they were stupid and made a tape---- kids pay attetnion- don't be stupid, anyway, that was one time??? Who is to say there was another time when she said no- and he did rape her? There are several cases of rape where it is a husband or boyfriend that have been together before- but that one time 'no' can be a problem.
    and hopefully she did not do this to get back at him. Women are afraid of responses like this and never report a crime.

    What in the world at 16 year olds doing make a sex tape. I want to know how the dad knew of the sex tape. I have no idea what this world is coming to. I hate this so bad for the young children.

    ...just being in possesion of a tape with a 16 year old is child pornography and dad could be labeled a sex offender for the rest of his natural life....

    Parents need to let authority deal with these types of situations. Generally, when the parents get involved (to the extent of trying to resolve issues such as this)...it gets worse. Parents cannot have an unbiased opinion about anything that concerns their kids....I know that I can't. Try, but who doesn't want to defend their kids? I see his goal, but that's not how to reach it.

    The problem with this is the people (at least one ) in the tape are minors. If they had been adults, the cops couldn't have charged the Dad.

    Why is it fishy about who recorded the video? Some of you must be ignorant of the fact that video cameras can be used on tripods or just placed on a desk or dresser and set to record. Any idiot can do it. Of course, dad should have showed it to the police but I can understand what he was trying to do. Stupid, but I can understand.
