Bonteheuwel mother selling pics of her naked daughter online, will soon know her fate
Bonteheuwel ward councillor, Angus McKenzie, hopes that the case of a mother arrested by the FBI and Homeland Security after allegedly selling naked pictures of her 4-year-old daughter on the dark web, will soon know her fate.
The suspect made a brief appearance in the Parow Regional Court on Wednesday, as the matter was postponed to 31 August 2022 for a possible plea and sentencing agreement.
The woman had been arrested in March 2021. The investigation was led by an agent from Homeland Security, who pretended to be a buyer, and traced her to Bonteheuwel after she allegedly received payments via PayPal.
She is facing charges of manufacturing child pornography, possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and financial gain from child pornography and rape.
“We trust that this matter will find conclusion on this day and justice will be served,” said McKenzie.
“This possible justice will not only be a major boost for healing process of the victims but also should send out a strong message that GBV specifically implicated against children will not be accepted,” he added.
“As a community we are hopeful the end of this sordid period in our communities history will come on the 31st,” concluded McKenzie.
