A Texas woman faces assault charges after allegedly beating her teenage son with an electrical cord after catching him in "a homosexual act" with her male cousin.
CBSDFW reports that Erica Moore of Forest Hill, Texas, began "whooping" her son with the cord after finding her 18-year-old cousin performing oral sex on him in a bedroom.
“When I walked in I saw my son, it was just disgusting to me, the way he was looking and my cousin was looking, and my cousin immediately ran out the door," she is quoted as saying. "So that was my reaction because it disgusted me.”
Despite the fact that the act was determined by officials to have been consensual, Moore added, "They were committing a homosexual act in my house and we are totally against that."
She now faces charges of assault with bodily injury to a family member, and could face prison time if convicted, according to the report.
