Guys like 31-year-old Matthew Wayne Fuller seem all too thick on the pine-straw-littered ground there. Angelina County Sheriffs say Fuller forced a six-year-old girl to sit in his lap and watch a homemade video recording of Fuller having sex with his wife, a woman the girl also knows. He then told the girl to "go play" and closed out the video on his computer.
The girl evidently first told her mother about the incident, and then the girl told the same story to area child advocates during a subsequent forensic interview.
Police arrested Fuller last Wednesday. He's been charged with child endangerment -- police say he put the girl in imminent danger of mental impairment by showing her the sex tape.
Someone paid his $5,000 bail the day he was arrested. If convicted, he could face two years in state jail, a sentence from which there would be no parole or any other form of early release.

Despite his unfortunate middle name and place of residence, Fuller's prior record appears to be clean.
