LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A recording has been released following the sentencing of a former Louisville Metro Police Department detective accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter.
Samantha Killary sat down with Crime Watch Daily to talk about how she was able to gather the evidence against her father, Sean Jackman. An episode of the show about what she went through will air soon on WAVE 3 News and NBC.
Killary and detectives recorded a phone call with Jackman where he admitted to the abuse.
"(It was) 30 long, painful minutes on the phone in front of two detectives who I barely knew," Killary said of the phone call. "He spoke as if it was talking about a football game."
Jackman was sentenced to 15 years in prison and is eligible for parole in three years. Killary says she's going to continue to use her voice to help other survivors of sexual abuse.
The full story airs Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 4 p.m. on Crime Watch Daily on WAVE 3 News and NBC.
