Timothy Morgan Butler said the statement to cops in Layton, Utah last year after he was arrested:
According to charging documents after his arrest, Butler admitted to watching pornography with a 5- or 6-year-old girl in the room and also admitted to inappropriately touching the girl, but it was to “show her love.”
He also told the police officer, “the Bible did not set limits on the age between two partners,” documents said.
Butler provided police with a written statement that said the girl was not “getting love at home, so he gave it to her,” according to the document. Butler also wrote he was not receiving any “love from my wife, so I decided to get love and share love” with the child.
