Steve Wilkos Show: Father Assaulted Daughter and Films It
This episode of the Steve Wilkos Show is pretty difficult to watch. A woman is accusing her father of assaulting her when she was a little girl. The woman tells Steve Wilkos her father made her take off all her clothes when she was younger and then lay in bed with him. She said there was even a video camera at the end of the bed recording everything that went on. For 28 years the woman said she has dealt with the pain of being assaulted as a child. She tells Steve Wilkos, through tears, that she wants the world to know what her father did to her.
But there is a little bit of a twist.
The father tells Steve Wilkos he has never touched his daughter and he never videotaped anything inappropriate with her. He tells Wilkos she is accusing him of assaulting her because she wants money, although he doesn’t fully explain how she is going to get any money by telling everyone she was assaulted.
While the father and daughter scream at each other, Steve Wilkos and the audience seem puzzled over who to believe. While everyone seems to want to side with the woman, she seems so out of her mind yelling and going crazy that you almost feel as if the father, who is calm through the segment, didn’t actually do anything. At the end of the show, Wilkos bring out the results of a lie detector test taken by the father but it doesn’t seem like he wants to hear the results. He tries to walk out the door and leave the studio but Steve Wilkos stops him and tells him he took the lie detector test for a reason and he is staying to hear the results.
