(Scroll down for video) A babysitter who was trusted with two young girls, harmed them in the worst way.
22-year-old Brittney Mae Lyon of Escondido, California, is accused of taking the girls to her boyfriend so that he can molest them.
Police said that the incident came to light after one of the little girls, who are not related, told her mother about the abuse.
Lyon drove the children to another town, where her boyfriend, Samuel Cabrera Jr., 22, of Carlsbad, lives in an upscale home with his aunt and uncle.
There, he molested the girls while Lyon watched and recorded him doing so, police said.
Police said that the sick crimes against the children could have started two years ago, and they strongly believe that there may be other victims.
Prosecutors said that Lyon has a degree in child development, and she worked for the YMCA. She used her experience to convince parents to let her take their young girls with her for the day.
She claimed that she was going to study them as part of her school project on child behavior, but instead, she took the children to her boyfriend.
Investigators discovered “a ton of recorded material including computers, hard drives, video sticks and GoPro cameras,” said Carlsbad police Lieutenant Marc Reno.
Vista Superior Court Judge James Mangione ordered the pair to be held on $2.6 million bail each as they are “a substantial risk to public safety.”
They are facing 90 years in prison.
