    Look jk I came on this site trying to find out what exact crime it would be called and what would happen if I were to call the cops.

    Thanks Hoopti for not being hostile and offering advice as well as giving me an idea of what exact law has been broken.
    Hmmmm.... These two answers look similar to me:

    If you fear for your sister, you should probably contact CPS to document and look into the matter. The cops may do little - if you have nothing more than a gut feeling, the police will do little more than forward a referral to CPS themselves.

    As for his taking a photo of you ... uh ... hmmm ... as odd as it sounds, no crime leaps to mind. You can certainly call the police and maybe they will talk to him, and maybe he will agree to turn over any photo or image to you. Maybe not. But, I don't know of any law that has been clearly broken for an adult taking a nude photo of an adult - as crude, rude, or perverse as it might be (assuming your interpretation is correct).

    As others have mentioned, if you feel uncomfortable at home and you cannot get any headway with dad or mom, then you might want to make a decision to move out.

    Hi kaybandgeek,
    Please, absolutely do NOT listen to these idiots unless you want your father to go to prison for a VERY VERY long time, and to be honest you should NEVER want that to happen, no matter what he has done (unless he has hurt you) and no matter what your feelings are towards him. You have no idea how strict the laws are in this country. Someone mentioned telling the police to seize his computer. Absolutely do not do that. If your father is charged with mere possession of child porn at the federal level he will be spending a minimum of 5 years in prison.

    The only time I would advise getting police involved is if you are scared he is going to hurt you or he has hurt you in the past. From what I read he he never tried to do so and is peaceful with you although his actions make you nervous, which I understand.

    If you care for your father, talk to him face to face and tell him the truth of everything you know. Doing so will make him realize what he is doing. Tell him how you feel about how he is acting. Suggest that your father enroll in counseling if he has a problem.

    But DO NOT get the police involved. You'll ruin his life. The consequences are not worth it.

    Hi kaybandgeek,

    For what? She has not articulated any crime. And since the OP is an adult, "kiddie porn" is not even an option.

    and to be honest you should NEVER want that to happen, no matter what he has done (unless he has hurt you)
    So, if an adult male had been taking surreptitious photos of his minor daughter for his own sick amusement, that would NOT be enough to call the police?!?! Really?! Are you ill??

    The only time I would advise getting police involved is if you are scared he is going to hurt you or he has hurt you in the past.
    The OP has indicated that she is concerned for her minor sister. How do you think she might feel if she did nothing and then finds out years later that her sister WAS being molested or photographed by the guy?

    If you care for your father, talk to him face to face and tell him the truth of everything you know. Doing so will make him realize what he is doing. Tell him how you feel about how he is acting. Suggest that your father enroll in counseling if he has a problem.
    Maybe that will work ... maybe it won't. It might also result in the OP being booted out of the house. If dad IS involved in nefarious activity, why would he want a witness around.

    From what she has said, there is a sufficient creep factor here to warrant someone looking into the matter even if there is no evidence to warrant a criminal investigation beyond an initial contact.

    If what the OP says is true, this guy could be a predator of one stripe or another. Taking a photo of your adult daughter in a state of undress is creepy enough ... having him in the same house with an underage girl as well is simply too risky for me.

    But, as of now, no crime appears to have been committed. But, there appears to be sufficient cause for at least CPS to make some inquiries.

    But the dad has already ruined her life, and may have started on the other sibling too.

    It sounds as if people are giveing you helpful and kind advice. I feel as if you know what needs to be done and your a little hesitant to do it because he's your dad. Ignoring your dad's behavior is not going to resolve this issue. In fact, it's possible that it encourages him as he may believe the lack of confrontation over his behavior means that you are not bothered by his actions. He needs counseling as soon as possible.

    The only time I would advise getting police involved is if you are scared he is going to hurt you or he has hurt you in the past. From what I read he he never tried to do so and is peaceful with you although his actions make you nervous, which I understand.

    Really?!? The fact that this man is apparently looking at his dauhters as sexual objects(ie. taking shower pics and touching his younger daughter in ways that makes her uncomfortable) is far from harmless.

    If you care for your father, talk to him face to face and tell him the truth of everything you know. Doing so will make him realize what he is doing. Tell him how you feel about how he is acting. Suggest that your father enroll in counseling if he has a problem.

    He refuses to accept culpability. Your average citizen in this country would never take pictures of his daughter.

    Sorry, she's done nothing wrong. Even if she contacts the police, she's done no wrong. He's ruining his life. And her's in the process.
