Weekley allegedly arranged to distribute the sexually explicit images of her children, all under the age of twelve, over text message. She reportedly used various "sex games" to coax the children into performing. Police suspect a long history of abuse in this case. She has been officially charged with sexual abuse of a child, permitting a child to engage in pornographic activity and production of pornography with minors.
“What we have in this case is Ms. Weekley has communicated with an individual in Florida via text message conversations,” said Assistant District Attorney Matt Simpson. “We have those text message conversations. In those conversations, she discusses with this person in Florida as to the acts that she would perform with her children who were a girl at the age of 6 or 7 at the time and a boy the age of 3 or 4 at the time.”
“These are acts that she would perform on the children, the children would perform on her and the children would perform amongst themselves that she would encourage,” Simpson said. “She would photograph these at the request of this individual in Florida and send these images to this individual in Florida.”
Should Weekley be able to pay the $300,000 (she was given $100,000 for each separate charge), she will be forced to wear an ankle monitor and not permitted to have any contact with individuals under the age of 18. She could potentially face between 20 years and life in prison if found guilty.
