A 28-year-old Virginia woman has been sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for sexual abuse videos involving a 6-year-old boy.
Christine Alyce Slayman pleaded guilty to filming the sexual abuse which took place in 2015 using her cellphone, court documents said. The videos were found in Jacksonville, Fla. but the abuse took place in King William, Va.
According to the court documents, Authorities found nearly 20 different video files of Slayman engaging in or directing the child to do sex acts.
Slayman’s attorney said his client was “critically instructed” by her boyfriend to engage in sex acts with the 6-year-old boy and film the abuse, WWBT reported.
Slayman’s boyfriend, who has yet to be indicted, transferred the video files to a USB drive, which he brought when the couple moved to Jacksonville from Virginia, her attorney said.
His purpose in “retaining the videos,” according to Slayman’s attorney, “was to later extort behavior consistent with his desires.”
WWBT reported that the 6-year-old boy is in the custody of another family member. It wasn’t immediately clear what the child’s relation to Slayman was. The investigation involved Homeland Security and the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
