A Michigan couple will have to pay for disposing of their son’s porn collection that he says was worth around $25,000, and according to the son’s attorney was “irreplaceable.”

David Werking, 42, sued his parents Beth and Paul Werking after they disposed of what a judge called “a trove of pornography and an array of sex toys.”

The son had moved into his parents home in Grand Haven, Michigan, in 2016 after a divorce. When he left for Muncie, Indiana, he said he expected his parents to deliver what belongings were left behind. He soon realized that a dozen boxes of pornographic films and magazines were missing.

His father said, “Frankly, David, I did you a big favor getting rid of all this stuff.”

The parents said they had told their son when he moved in that he could not bring pornography into their home or it would be destroyed. They also contended he had abandoned the property and said he could have mitigated his losses by removing it himself.

The judge said the parents would not allow him back and that they said they would ship his property to him.

The parents admitted they kept “the worst of the worst” in a safety-deposit box with concerns it was illegal, but the sheriff’s department found no child pornography and issued no charges.
