Sara, a 22-year-old single mom, and Matt, a 34-year-old convicted registered sex offender began dating two months ago. Matt claims he was wrongfully accused and convicted of molesting a 14-year old six years ago – and he just wants a chance to prove to Sara’s parents that he’s “a good guy.”

Anne and Dovell say they don’t want Matt around their 2-year-old granddaughter, and they’re willing to fight Sara for custody if they ever find out she’s left the child alone with him.


“I am very protective of my granddaughter,” says Dovell, in the video above. “If I ever found out that Matt hurt my granddaughter – I would drive to his house, kick his door in – and there would be no saving him.”

Dovell says if Matt isn’t cleared, Sara has to leave him. “And if she doesn’t, I will see her in court for custody of my granddaughter.”

Sara says she wishes her parents would give Matt more credit for the person he is, rather than what she says are wrongful accusations against him.
