FOREST HILL, TEXAS – Erica Moore of Forest Hill says she was laying in bed one night when she decided to walk-around her house to check on her kids. She found the door to her 15-year-old son’s bedroom shut. When she opened it, she got quite a surprise to see her son wasn’t alone — her teenage male cousin was in the room with him.
“My cousin at the time he was 18. My son he was 15 and I had walked in the room on [my cousin] giving oral sex to my son and I started whooping my son, and I’m the one who got in trouble as a result of me whooping him,” she said. “When I walked in I saw my son, it was just disgusting to me, the way he was looking and my cousin was looking, and my cousin immediately ran out the door. And I’m just like what the?!? You know, is you serious? So that was my reaction because it disgusted me.”
Moore admits that she struck her son with an electrical cord because it’s a form of discipline she was taught, and because she doesn’t believe in homosexuality.
“The police department told me that it was consensual, but they was committing a homosexual act in my house and we are totally against that. So I whooped my son and about three or four months later they came and arrested me for abuse,” she recalled.
Forest Hill Police meanwhile say Moore went too far, causing bleeding and leaving marks on the boy’s thighs, forearms, hands, torso and back.
“If you are leaving the child with severe injuries or bruises, then obviously we might be talking about abuse,” says Marissa Gonzales with Child Protective Services.
Police were alerted after the boy’s grandmother took him to the hospital to treat his injuries.
Moore said that the officer who arrived told her he understood why she beat her son and that he would have gone even farther.
“Even that day when the police officer came out here, he told me out of his own mouth, ‘If it was me and I walked in on my child,’ he said, ‘parent to parent I probably would have shot him. I probably would have shot both of them.’ He said but with the law you can’t, you’re not allowed to put whoops on him. He said you can whoop him but you’re not allowed to leave any marks on him,” she said.
She claims she would’ve done the same thing if she caught her daughter in a sexual act.
“So I said, ‘OK, what do you do in a situation like that where I’m catching my son having sex?’” she said. “It would be no different than me catching my daughter and she had a boy in the house and me disciplining her for having a boy in the house.”
Moore is currently fighting charges of assault with bodily injury to a family member in Tarrant County, for which she could face prison time. Moore claims she was well within her rights to discipline her son.
“I actually caught this going on in my house so how was I supposed to react to it? I supposed to just let it go? No! We was taught to discipline our kids and we whoop our kids,” she said.

Update: Chief Dan Dennis with the Forest Hill Police Department spoke with CBSDFW Thursday evening, defending his officer. “Miss Moore’s statement of the officer’s alleged inappropriate comments are simply untrue. The conversation was recorded. The officer’s conduct was entirely professional. The Forest Hill Police Department does not discriminate against any citizen based on sexual orientation.”
Forest Hill Police Captain Steve Yancey says the reason they didn’t charge the 18-year-old involved in the case is because Moore refused to cooperate.
“We attempted to setup interviews with her son in cooperation with CPS and could not get her to bring her son to be interviewed. The fact that we couldn’t interview the victim hindered us from furthering the case.”
