Md. woman charged in child porn case

Court records indicate a Hagerstown woman has been charged with sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl and possessing child pornography.

Nineteen-year-old Patricia Ann Tasker was charged with numerous sex offenses and possession of child pornography on a computer. She was arrested Friday and is being held on $70,000 bail.

On Aug. 16, the girl's mother went to the Washington County Sheriff's Office and told deputies that she had found a pornographic video of her daughter on Tasker's laptop.

Investigators searched the laptop and found the video, according to court documents.

WTF?? Probably abused as a child as well. Mmmm.....child sex abuse, the gift that keeps on giving. :-(

Now another child is abused and the cycle continues. Please get this poor little girl help and get the adult some help and jail time as well.

This case is unusual because its a woman but the punishment should be just the same. I hope she gets what is coming to her during her stay in jail.
