An Alabama woman accused of kidnapping her husband’s lover nearly derailed her trial by sending explicit messages to a teenage boy that were revealed on the seventh day of her trial.
46-year-old Tammy Moorer, from South Carolina, sent sexual texts to the 18-year-old saying she was ‘fantasizing’ about him.
The text messages read in court nearly derailed the trial after her attorney to ask for a mistrial after the sexually-explicit text messages were introduced.
One of the messages read out at Horry County Court read: ‘I want you Caleb. You don’t even know. I want to f**k the hell out of you.’
The sexting stopped after the boy’s mother discovered the messages and contacted Moorer.
Moorer’s lawyers objected to Lynch’s testimony several times and motioned for a mistrial, which the judge denied.
“This is the most blush-worthy language I’ve ever experienced,” attorney Greg McCollum told the judge, according to Myrtle Beach Online.
Phone records showed that Moorer appeared to threaten Elvis numerous times in since-deleted text messages sent weeks before the 20-year-old vanished.
“Someone’s about to get their a– beat down,” a text to Elvis said.

Moorer’s lawyers objected to Lynch’s testimony and motioned for a mistrial, which the judge denied.
They argued that the explicit messages were not relevant to the case and were an attempt to discredit her character, which hasn’t been introduced as evidence.
Lynch claimed the sexting with the teen began after Moorer found out that her husband was having an affair then confiscated his phone, using it to send messages.
She also researched ‘cougar life’ on the internet, Lynch told the court.
He said the messaging stopped after the teenager’s mother found the messages and confronted Moorer.

Presumed dead: Elvis, whose car was found abandoned at a boat landing. Prosecutors argue that Moorer kidnapped Elvis in a jealous rage after finding out about her husband’s month-long affair
Prosecutors argue that Moorer kidnapped Elvis in a jealous rage after finding out about her husband’s month-long affair.
Phone records show she had threatened Elvis shortly before her disappearance, with one text message saying: ‘Someone’s about to get their a** beat down’.
She also allegedly forced her husband to get her own name tattooed above his crotch as punishment for cheating.
But Moorer’s defense team claim she and her husband had an open marriage and she knew he was having sex with Elvis.
Referring to the sex texts, her attorney Greg McCollum reportedly told the judge: ‘This is the most blush-worthy language I’ve ever experienced.’
The court previously heard evidence from Dennis Hart, a former kitchen manager at the Tilted Kilt where Elvis worked as a hostess.
He claimed Moorer demanded that he fire Elvis, which he refused to do, and had accused her of spreading rumors that she was pregnant with her husband’s baby.
Sidney was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2017 for obstruction of justice after prosecutors said he lied about his contact with Elvis the day she disappeared.
Phone records show he spoke to the hostess at 6am that day.
