William Fleury, the former host of “swinger parties” in Mt. Helix who now has renounced that life style, was sentenced Friday to 16 months in state prison for having unlawful sexual relations with his 14-year-old daughter.

San Diego Superior Court Judge Daniel Kremer denied a request for probation from Fleury’s attorney, Allan Williams, who suggested a lesser sentence.

Kremer told Fleury, 44, the sexual activities with his daughter were “planned,” rather than something that occurred spontaneously.

Fleury could have been sentenced to three years and eight months in prison. He pleaded guilty May 2 to having unlawful oral copulation and sexual intercourse with a minor.


Fleury and his third wife, Mary Jane Fleury, 49, hosted the parties, which were called “Pillow Talk” and were attended by couples who paid $25 admission.

The probation report stated that the victim attended the parties and watched couples engage in sex or walk nude around the premises. The 14-year-old said she drank alcoholic beverages and used marijuana and amphetamines at the parties.

William Fleury said he has abandoned his “swinger” life style and told a probation officer he has become a “reborn man in Christ” while participating in a Bible study unit in County Jail since his arrest March 1.

“He has made a vow with his wife, Mary Jane, that they will never again participate in swinging,” the report stated.


Fleury told a probation officer he adopted the “philosophy of open sex” after his first wife cheated on him. He said he thought “fidelity was not a realistic expectation.”

Fleury’s daughter was placed in a foster home after the couple were arrested, and will live with her mother, Fleury’s first wife, in Wisconsin beginning next week.

The sentencing of Mary Jane Fleury was delayed until Sept. 26 in El Cajon Municipal Court. She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of causing a minor to become a ward of Juvenile Court.
