KALAMAZOO, MI — A Kalamazoo father is calling on his daughter to come forward to the Kalamazou County Prosecutor’s Office about allegations she had inappropriate contact with a man at a bar in May.
Father of three, Jason Harris, posted the video on Facebook, where it has been viewed more than 10,000 times.
“It is very sad that a woman could be victimized by someone so weak and so selfish, and she was doing it to protect her family,” Harris said in the video, posted on May 4.
“I want to apologize to her for what I saw and what I heard, and I want to offer her the support she needs.”
“She was a nice, gentle, good person, a wonderful mom, and now that she has a child, I just want to tell her I am sorry for what happened to her.”
The video is posted at 10:16 a.m. and has been watched more than 5,000 time.
In the video that accompanied the post, Harris said he has seen the video several times, but never called police to report the incident.
He also said he is trying to make sure his daughter knows she is being held accountable for what she did, and said he hopes the district attorney will act on it.
“I am going to speak to the DA, I am going have them look at the video,” he said.
“It is so important.
I just don’t know if it is going to work, and if it’s not, I don’t want it to work.”
The man in the videos who calls himself Mr. Harris said the two had a sexual relationship in the bar that was “completely consensual,” but the relationship has been called into question.
Mr. Harris posted the message on his Facebook page.
“What’s in the past?
If you are guilty of this, I have a good friend who will forgive you and be there for you and help you move forward.
If you aren’t guilty, I’ll make sure you know it,” he wrote.”
If you are innocent, then I hope you don’t blame me, but I think the DA should act on this.
I don�t want my daughter to go through this again.
I want justice.
It’s the only way I know how to get it.
Thank you for all you do.
Harris said he does not know if he will file charges against the man, who he identified only as Mr. S. The video was filmed in May, two months before the allegations surfaced.
The district attorney�s office has not said whether it plans to file charges.
