US woman jailed for abusing daughter, 2, on web-cam as teen watched in UK

London, Mar 16 (ANI): A woman in the US has been jailed for 20-years after she sexually abused her 2-year-old daughter while a teenager in UK watched her live via a web-cam.

Julie Carr, 33, from Maine, was sentenced a year after confessing that she recorded the videos for Nicholas Wilde, the teenager in Britain.

US District Judge John Woodcock said he had dealt with many child pornography cases and told the woman “yours is the worst case I’ve ever seen”.

According to the Bangor Daily News, when Carr pleaded guilty in February 2010, she admitted making four live videos of herself performing sex acts on her youngest daughter.

“What you have done, Ms. Carr, is violate the most basic bond of society, the bond between a mother and her child, the bond between a mother and her daughter,” the Daily Mail quoted Judge Woodcock as saying.

“It is incumbent upon me to protect the people who can’t protect themselves. I’ll tell you, unequivocally, that yours is the worst case I’ve ever seen.

“I have always thought possession was bad enough, but production is another level of evil.

“It never crossed my mind that pornography would be the child’s mother. The most natural response, after revulsion, is protecting the child,” he stated.

Carr’s three daughters were all under the age of 4 when she met Wilde on an Internet dating site. She made the sexually abusive live-chat videos of her youngest daughter, who was 34 months old at the time and still in nappies.

Assistant US Attorney Todd Lowell said Wilde had picked the girl out, as “she was the cutest”.

Police in the West Midlands region of England discovered the videos, which were recorded by Wilde, in June 2009 while investigating another child pornography case.

Wilde was arrested after sending child sex abuse images to a 16-year-old girl he met in an Internet chat room.

The girl and her mother contacted the police and Wilde was traced and subsequently arrested by officers from the child exploitation unit at West Midlands Police.

The teenager from Sheffield admitted 10 charges of making, possessing or distributing indecent images of children and also possessing extreme pornography.

Wilde also admitted two charges of incitement to commit sexual assault of a child under 13 - offences that led to the arrest of Carr.

“It was entirely for your benefit, at your direction, for the sexual gratification of Nicholas Wilde,” Judge Hilary Watson said of the exchange with Carr.

Jailing Wilde for four years and eight months, the judge added his youth was “very worrying”.

“You have your whole life ahead of you and the potential to re-offend is very great,” the judge added. (ANI)
