A woman was jailed after producing sexually explicit videos with a 5-year-old child.

25-year-old Miranda Renea Kelso was arrested after police were tipped off to sexually explicit videos.

One video showed Kelso pleasuring herself while having the child touch her.

The second video showed her doing so with the child nearby.

Kelso claimed that she was a victim of domestic violence and that she was forced into recording herself by a man.

However, prosecutors argued that the “alleged” abuser was not with her during the incidents.

A jury found Kelso guilty of on one count each of indecency with a child by contact and indecency with a child by exposure.

She was sentenced to 5 years in prison.

Ellis County District Attorney Patrick Wilson said: “for the suspect to claim domestic violence as a shield against child molestation, is disrespectful to the real victim in this case and to all victims of domestic violence.”
