A woman from Florida has been caught and arrested by the FBI after she allegedly produced child pornography, and appeared to a abuse a young child in a sex video posted on the internet.
24 hours earlier, officers had appealed for help from the American public to catch Corrine Danielle Motley of Okaloosa County, Florida. She was then arrested late on Wednesday night and now faces federal charges for her offences.
The 25-year-old was apprehended by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and Homeland Security Investigations special agents, who were alerted after a video appeared online showing the woman engaging in explicit sex with a four to five-year-old victim. The content is believed to have been uploaded on or around November 27.
John Morton, director of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, stated, “The quick identification of the victim and suspect in this case demonstrates the power of the press, social media and the general public in helping solve these cases.”
“Literally hours after we asked for their assistance in identifying Jane Doe, a tip came in that led to her identification and arrest,” added Morton. “There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that, due to these efforts, a child is now safe and her tormentor in custody.”
It is believed that the video was produced in the U.S. and that the victim also resides in the country. The ICE had received a tip-off about the film from Danish Police, before beginning their investigation. Motley is believed to be married and is currently being held without bond.
