CINCINNATI – Records show an Ohio woman blamed diet supplements after police accused her of filming herself sexually abusing her young daughter and emailed the video to others. The girl is under 5 but authorities wouldn’t be more specific about her age.
The 32-year-old was indicted Monday on multiple charges, including rape and pandering. If convicted, she faces life in prison. She did not yet have an attorney.
She was arrested at her home in Springboro in southwestern Ohio on June 22 after police say her boyfriend found five videos of her in graphic sexual acts with her toddler-age daughter.
According to a police report, the woman said she didn’t remember shooting the videos because she had taken diet pills that rendered her unconscious. Police who watched the videos say that the woman was conscious and active in the videos, and filmed at least one of them herself.
The woman also told police that she was working for an “online sexting company” and had been asked for more videos of her and her daughter.
The woman’s three children are now with their father, Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said. The Associated Press is not identifying the woman to protect her daughter’s identity.
