Virginia: Steven Pladl facing ‘incest charges’ after having daughter with Katie Pladl, his biological daughter

A Virginia man and his 20-year-old biological daughter “face incest charges” after having a child together. Steven Walter Pladl and Katie Pladl were separated for years when his wife gave up their daughter for adoption and we not not reunited until Katie was an adult.

WNCN-TV reports that “Steven Pladl and his wife legally separated in November 2016 and the wife moved out,” and that Pladl’s wife claims her husband had begun sleeping “on the floor” in Katie’s room prior to her vacating the home.

In May 2017, the wife discovered that Steven had impregnated Katie, according to WNCN-TV.

She then confronted Steven, and he admitted that he and Katie had been involved in a sexual relationship resulting in the conception of a child. He also reportedly added that he and Katie were going to be married. The wife uncovered the secret only after reading one of her children’s diary entries, the news outlet adds.

When Katie Pladl turned 18, she used social media to reach out to her biological parents, and their kids confirmed to the Henrico County Child Advocacy Center that “they had been told” Katie was pregnant with their father’s baby.

USA Today found a July 21 Instagram post from Katie indicating that she and her biological father were “married.”

On Nov. 29, 2017, Henrico County police issued warrants for the arrest of Katie and Steven Pladl.

The Pladls were located at a home on Earlston Court in the city limits of Knightdale and arrested on Jan. 27.

A baby boy was with the Pladls when Knightdale police officers found them. Warrants say that baby was born in September 2017.

Both Steve and Katie Pladl are being held at the Wake County Detention Center pending extradition to Virginia.

They are both charged with incest with adult, adultery, contributing to delinquency.

Both were each issued a $1 million bond.
