TRENTON, N.J. (December 19, 2012)—Jennifer Mahoney, 33, of Manalapan, N.J., who sexually assaulted a 5-year-old girl she was babysitting and then put video of the abuse on the Internet, has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison.
Mahoney will be under lifetime supervision once she's freed from prison.
She pleaded guilty in May to sexual exploitation of a child and was sentenced Tuesday.
Mahoney admitted sexually assaulting the girl and streaming the assault live over a video chat service and also admitted abusing the girl on another occasion, recording the abuse on a camera phone and emailing the video to at least one other person.
She said she viewed other videos of child sexual abuse streamed to her using a video chat service.
