A Tulsa mother has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison after molesting her 16-month-old daughter, recording the sexual abuse, and sending the videos to her boyfriend.
On Thursday, Jerrica Ann Renee Teehee Lackey, 30, was also ordered to serve 120 months of post-custody supervision, reported Tulsa World.
Lackey was first arrested in May when the sexual abuse was discovered. On May 16, Lackey called 911 when her daughter’s father confronted her after he discovered nude and sexually explicit images of the baby on her phone, according to a criminal complaint.
The 16-moth-old’s father was borrowing Lackey's phone when he clicked on the social media app Kik and found the images of his daughter being molested, reported News On 6.
According to investigators, Lackey admitted to using her phone to record videos and live feeds of her molesting the child. She said she would then send the videos to her boyfriend, whom she met online two months prior.
Lackey’s unnamed boyfriend lived in Florida while the abuse took place.
One of the videos Lackey sent depicts her penetrating the child with her finger, according to an affidavit prepared by investigators.
Lackey told investigators that her boyfriend would become upset and “punish” her when she did not send videos, reported Tulsa World.
Under the terms of an agreement with prosecutors, Lackey pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child under the age of 12. As part of the deal, prosecutors dismissed one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child porn.
Lackey also faces six related counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12 in Tulsa County District Court.
