Woman accused of molesting 1-year-old daughter, sending video to out-of-state boyfriend
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) - Court documents show a Tulsa woman accused of molesting her 1-year-old daughter says her long-distance boyfriend urged her to do so.
Jerrica Lackey, 29, is charged with five counts of child sexual abuse of a child younger than 12. She was arrested Monday and booked into the Tulsa County Jail on $250,000 bond.
According to court documents, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office responded to Lackey's home May 16 after the baby's father found pictures and video of the abuse on Lackey's phone. When the deputy arrived, she said she'd met someone online who lived in Florida and convinced her to start touching her daughter.
They communicated through FaceTime and the Kik messaging app, according to the affidavit, and Lackey would send pictures and video of herself touching the baby, sometimes using objects. Lackey said she had sent the most recent video earlier that day.
According to the affidavit, the baby's father went to pick the baby up about an hour and a half earlier and while there used Lackey's cellphone. He told the deputy Lackey's boyfriend began sending text messages referencing Kik, which the baby's father said he knew was used for the sexual exploitation of children. When he opened the app, he discovered several nude pictures of their daughter.
Charges were filed Monday and a warrant was issued for Lackey's arrest soon thereafter.
Jail records show Lackey is due in court May 30.
