Twisted dad who ‘wasted his life’ marrying daughter celebrates post-prison life

A sick dad who was thrown in jail for marrying his daughter and making her sister compete for sex with him said his life is "amazing" now he has been released from prison.

Travis Fieldgrove spent two years behind bars after he entered into a sexual relationship with biological daughter Samantha Kershner in 2018, just three years after meeting her for the first time when she was 17.

While locked up last November he declared that he "couldn't wait to go home" and was counting down the days until he was released from prison, which happened earlier this year.

At the time he posted to Facebook: "Good morning ya'll I know one thing I cant wait to go home I got one month &16 days left cant wait but being in prison again made me realize something this time & that's lifes too short & I'm tired of wasting my life."

A year on from his post he seems to be making the most of his freedom and shares regular updates about his new life on Facebook.

One of his posts read: “One thing I realized that my past I wasn't the man I wanted to be when I went to prison then I took classes I didn't have to take just to pass by the time but they actually help me in the long run.

"I learned for the first time and it help me realise deep down under the hood man is under all that garbage so I dug and dug for days while I was locked up and it change my life and my life now is amazing.”

In another, he brazenly declared that he wished he had gone to prison "a long time ago" while advised his Facebook friends to "just get along" to avoid his fate.

He wrote: "I wish I would've went to prison a long time ago. My best advice is love one another and just get along cause being locked up ain't a good life."

Fieldgrove was jailed in 2019 for his incestuous relationship, which Kershner told police "stemmed from a jealous competition with her half-sister regarding who could have sex with their father," court documents revealed at the time.

They began their dalliance after meeting for the first time and initially developing a normal father-daughter relationship before embarking on what investigators called “a sordid sexual affair.”

The pair even went on to get married illegally and announced their nuptials on Facebook despite knowing they were under investigation.

They were later arrested for incest after Kershner raised the alarm to police about their affair, with the young woman also receiving a 22-day sentence and Fieldgrove banned from contacting his daughter upon his release.

Police said at the time: "This case relates to the two being involved in an intimate relationship beginning in September of 2018 in Grand Island, Nebraska, despite evidence that Fieldgrove is the paternal parent.

"Evidence leading up to the arrest suggests that Fieldgrove and Kershner were aware of the biological relationship before being intimate."
