Jennifer Mahoney was arrested after FBI investigators searched a Texas man’s apartment and allegedly found 10 video files depicting Mahoney sexually abusing the 5-year-old girl she was babysitting.
Jennifer could be anyone’s best friend, neighbor, or fellow university student. Evil rarely looks evil. I can hear her defense attorney now. He will probably say, she’s “too perky” to go to prison.
Remember Debra Lafave? The teacher who was caught having sex with a 14 year-old boy? Her attorney said she was “too pretty to go to prison.”
Story on the babysitter…
“The affidavit also quotes Austin, Texas, resident Robert J. Ramos Jr. talking lewdly about Jennifer Mahoney’s alleged abuse of the child during a Facebook message exchange with a 14-year-old girl he’s allegedly trying to entice into internet pornography.
“I wish u had a webcam though, she (Mahoney) is awesome to webcam with,” says Ramos, who is posing during the exchange as another 14-year-old, ostensibly named “Emily Elaine Lang,” the affidavit says. He allegedly adds, “me and her (Mahoney) had a great time” on the webcam.
The affidavit written by federal authorities in Texas says Ramos continues in the message exchange: “do u mind if she does it with young girls?”
In another quoted Facebook message exchange, Ramos, whose age is unavailable, is allegedly talking to Mahoney, 32, who babysat the child.
“I got the pics,” he says, according to the affidavit, and then he writes “amazing.”
Later, Mahoney, who is currently in jail on related charges New Jersey filed in Monmouth County in December, allegedly writes, “i have tried to give her stuff before, I gave her xanax but I was terrified of giving her too much so I gave her just crumbs and it didn’t do anything.”
Hmmm. Zanax. Zanny the nanny strikes again.
Mahoney, who FBI Newark division director Michael Ward yesterday said has been a methadone user, was charged Thursday by U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child. Each federal charge carries a minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison.
Federal authorities in New Jersey also accuse Mahoney, a waitress, of using the popular video-chat service Skype to transmit a video to Ramos.
According to a press release and information outlined in a graphic criminal complaint, Mahoney performed oral sex on the child on more than one occasion.
The complaint also said she “is … laughing during the video” and is “talking to another person over the internet via webcam.”
In another description, in which Mahoney is allegedly recording an iPhone video while the girl is in a bathtub, she tells the child to “lean over sweetheart so I can rinse you.” The girl asks “like a mermaid?” and Mahoney says “like a mermaid, sweetheart,” and sexual abuse ensues, according to the complaint.
The FBI searched Mahoney’s home on Dec. 13. That day, she told agents she had performed oral sex on the child on two occasions in August or September 2011, according to the complaint.
Mahoney is charged with sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault and several counts of endangering the welfare of a child — including photographing a child in a prohibited sexual act and distribution of child pornography. She faces decades in prison if she is convicted and receives maximum sentences, he said.”
Good. I hope she goes to prison for life. She is a filthy, disgusting, vile human being. If she performed oral sex on that little girl, this has the potential to scar the girl for life.
