Woman Arrested for Exposing 3-Year-Old Girl's Body to Webcam Sex Chat Partner

webcamA 3-year-old from Texas has been dragged into an international sex crime investigation, and now her dad's girlfriend is under arrest. Cops in England say they found transcripts of webcam sex chats between Misty Wofford of the US and Paul Hanlon, a Brit who's under arrest across the pond for child porn. It seems Misty was using her boyfriend's daughter to help a guy get his jollies off on Skype.

America, I shouldn't have to say this, but it seems I do. Whatever freak nasty things you want to do in your bedroom, go ahead and go on with your bad self, but please leave the innocent kids out of it!


According to the cops in England, they were already raiding Hanlon's house when what happened to this little girl came to light and they contacted police in Texas. Misty Wofford was allegedly Skyping with Hanlon and she involved the little girl, exposing the child's genitals to the man on the other side of the webcam. Wofford also allegedly asked the child to pull on her (exposed) nipples to excite Hanlon.

Who encouraged who here doesn't really matter. The fact is two adults could enact out the entirety of Fifty Shades of Grey if they wanted to. They're grownups. That's their prerogative. But you crossed a line when a poor child is hurt, a line that can't be uncrossed.

There is no excuse for this kind of behavior. Whatever this guy across the pond wanted, it was up to Wofford to say, "No, sorry, she's not fair game." She was the responsible adult present (there's no indication that the girl's dad was there), and she should have been protecting this child. Period.

What do you think the punishment should be here if Misty Wofford is convicted?
