Amarillo, Texas - The Amarillo dad who showed his young daughters pornography is heading to court this week.

34-year-old Jack Buckner will make his first appearance in Randall County on Wednesday. His criminal hearing will be early next week.

Buckner defends his actions, saying he showed it to his kids for educational purposes, something a loophole in Texas law allows. Nonetheless, Randall County DA James Farren believes he's found a way to prove it is still a crime, putting a new spin on the case using a different theory.

Buckner could spend a year behind bars and face a four thousand dollar fine.
