A Connecticut woman, who had already been convicted of a sex crime with a child in 2006, pleaded guilty on Friday sexually abusing a toddler, videotaping the sexual assault and then distributing the self-produced pornography on the Internet, according to a report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The 29-year old registered sex offender, Angela D. Martin a/k/a Angela Haussmann, confessed to FBI agents, and stated in court during her allocution, that she sexually assaulted a three-year-old girl.
She also admitted that she recorded the sex act with the child on her cell phone and then sent it digitally to a Californian. Besides her own sex acts and child pornography production, she also received and sent out child pornography in August and September 2013.
The Wallingford, Conn., resident had previously served two-and-half-years in a Connecticut state penitentiary after a second-degree sexual assault of a child conviction in 2006. Upon release, she was ordered to register as a sex offender.
According to Friday's statement from the office of Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, "Martin is scheduled to be sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge Janet C. Hall in New Haven on June 20, 2014, at which time she faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 50 years. The penalties in this matter are enhanced based on Martin’s criminal history."
