Steve’s 12-year-old daughter accused him of trying to video record her while she was in the shower and inappropriately touching her while she slept in bed. He insists he never behaved inappropriately with his daughter and an investigation cleared his name. He claims his ex-girlfriend, Robyn, coached their daughter to make the false claims against him – an accusation she denies.
