3. Jennifer Mahoney
In November 2012, investigators obtained a search warrant for the home of Robert J. Ramos Jr. in Austin, Texas. During the search, police seized Ramos’s computer. They found evidence of child pornography and exploitation that incriminated Ramos and 33-year-old New Jersey babysitter Jennifer Mahoney.
Acting on that information, the FBI searched Mahoney’s residence. She confessed to performing oral sex on a five-year-old girl and streaming the assault online via Skype. She also recorded the video on her phone and emailed it to Ramos.
Ramos, a former middle school employee, pled guilty to one count of production of child pornography and one count of distribution of child pornography. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised release.
Mahoney pled guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a child. She was sentenced to 30 years followed by lifetime supervised release, restricted contact with minors, computer monitoring, and registration on the sex offenders list.
