                            Man sues parents for destroying his massive porn collection worth nearly $29,000

A man in Michigan is now suing his own parents for $86,000 after he accused them of throwing out his enormous porn collection that is reportedly worth $29,000 after they compared the stash to crack cocaine. The unnamed man is reported to have had a falling out with his mother and father after he moved back into their home in Grand Haven in October 2016 after his divorce. Federal civil court documents show that this is a civil case without any associated criminal charges.

WXMI reported that according to the lawsuit that was filed last week, "Charlie" stayed with his parents in their home for 10 months and did housework in order to pay the rent. The man had been asked to leave the home after authorities were called to the residence in August 2017 due to a domestic situation.

Charlie's parents had allegedly traveled to his new home in November 2017 in Indiana to drop off some of his possessions that he had left at their place. The man noticed that the main thing that didn't come along with his parents was his massive pornographic collection. Charlie said that his parents had informed him that they had destroyed the whole thing. The collection had more than 12 moving boxes that were filled with adult films.

A call was then received by the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office about the destroyed items. Charlie is said to have filed a police report that estimated the value of his porn collection at $28,940.72. The prosecutor's office then declined to file any charges against his parents.

Only a month after Charlie filed the police report, he reportedly started corresponding with his father through email. Charlie told his father in part: "If you had a problem with my belongings, you should have stated that at the time and I would have gone elsewhere. Instead, you choose to keep quiet and behave vindictively."

According to the lawsuit, his father replied: "Believe it or not, one reason why I destroyed your porn was for your own mental and emotional health. I would have done the same if I had found a kilo of crack cocaine. Someday, I hope you will understand."

His father also said in another mail that Charlie had been allegedly thrown out of high school as well as college for selling porn to other students. He said, according to the documents: "I also warned you at that time if I ever found pornography in my house again, I would destroy it."

Charlie had also apparently felt that the situation was unresolved so he reached out to investigators again and allegedly sent one officer 44 emails essaying the worth of the movies that he claims were destroyed. He listed many of the films as valuable and out-of-print writing: "Not Just Out of Print. But the entire studio making it dissolved, and that was 20 years ago." The prosecutors' office, once again, declined to file any charges. Charlie is currently suing his parents for a total of $86,822.16 in damages.
