#HowToDad: Dallas dad not guilty for taking tween daughter’s phone:

During the two day trial Jackson’s daughter, now 15, took the stand and testified about her father taking her phone. “It was the last thing as a mother I wanted my daughter to go through,” Steppe says. “I’m always here for my kids.” Steppe said she was confused by the verdict because she purchased the phone and maintained cell phone plans under her name. “Even if you purchase something with your own money and have a receipt, it’s not yours,” Steppe says. “Someone can take it from you.” Jackson says the ordeal has permanently ended any chances to have a relationship with his daughter. “I have to separate myself from them,” Jackson says. “I can’t ever have a relationship with them again.” Gray says the case is not over. He says he plans to file a federal complaint for civil rights violations for the way his client was treated by the Grand Prairie Police Department and the city attorney’s office. Jackson still has the phone.
