David Epstein - Columbia University Professor - Charged With Having Ongoing Sexual Relationship With Adult Daughter

New York, N.Y. (The Weekly Vice) - David Epstein, a 46-year-old political science professor at Columbia University was charged Thursday after he allegedly had a 3-year-long sexual relationship with his own daughter.

According to police, Epstein began a sexual relationship with his daughter in 2006, and the relationship continued until some time in 2009. His daughter, who was an adult when the alleged relationship, began is now 24.

Epstein, who is married to fellow Columbia political science professor, Sharyn O'Halloran, reportedly changed his Facebook status to "single" after news broke about the alleged tryst.

Investigators say Epstein and his consenting daughter also exchanged "twisted text messages" before ending the affair about a year ago.

In addition to his duties at the University, Epstein also blogged about a variety of political topics on The Huffington Post.

Epstein was arrested Wednesday and then charged on one count of third-degree incest. Neither he or his wife has commented on the arrest.

Charges against the daughter have reportedly not been filed.
