Cousins were arrested after a video showed a woman helping a man rape a young girl.

Police arrested 40-year-old Jason Fletcher and his cousin, Ciera Richter, 25.

He was accused of producing child pornography while she was accused of selling a child.

Both suspects have children, but police did not disclose if the
Richter used her own child in the sexual abuse.

People described Fletcher as is a good father who attended his children’s school functions. His coworkers said that they too were shocked by the allegations.

However, Fletcher had a criminal past. He was on probation for prior child sex crimes when he was arrested.

One day, Fletcher’s probation officer checked his phone and found a video of him raping a child.

According to federal authorities, some of the videos showed
Richter positioning, holding, and entertaining the 2-year-old girl while her cousin recorded himself sexually abusing the child.

Fletcher faces 35 years to life in prison because of his two prior convictions for crimes involving children, federal officials said.

Richter was charged with one count of selling a child. She also faces 30 years to life in prison.
