Travis Fieldgrove, 39, and his 21-year-old daughter, Samantha Kershner of Nebraska, each has been charged with one count of incest. Grand Island police officers spoke to Fieldgrove and Kershner in September after receiving a tip about their relationship and allegations of incest. Both admitted they were having a romantic and sexual relationship. Kershner told police that she told her mother she wanted to know who her father was and meet him. Her mother identified Fieldgrove as the father and arranged a meeting. Both declined to tell officers how the relationship turned sexual but said they had had sex Sept. 10.
Kershner also told officers that “her motivation to have sex with her father stemmed from a jealous competition with her half-sister regarding who could have sex with their father.” Fieldgrove and Kershner face a maximum of eight years in prison.
