A California adult film star, who has appeared in movies like “Family Hookups” and “Moms in Control,” and her porn-producing boyfriend are accused of sexually abusing a young girl over the course of four months.

Melinda Smith, 35 and known in the adult film industry as Mercedes Carrera, and her boyfriend Jason Whitney, 43 and known in the same industry as Daemon Cins, were charged Tuesday with eight counts each of sexually abusing a child under the age of 10, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department stated.

On Jan. 31, “deputies were notified of sexual acts against a minor female victim.” Detectives then “conducted an extensive interview” with that victim and “detectives learned she was sexually abused several times by, Melinda Smith and Jason Whitney,” according to the police department. “The sexual abuse consisted of inappropriate touching, oral copulation, and digital penetration, which occurred over four months.”

It's not clear what the couple's relationship is to the victim.

Detectives wrote that they found “a large amount of evidence corroborating the victim’s statement” at the couple’s home in addition to methamphetamine and two loaded handguns.

In addition to the sexual assault charges, the couple has been charged with possessing a controlled substance while armed with a handgun. Both were denied bail and remain in custody.

“Detectives also learned the two suspects had their bedroom set up where they could film and record various pornographic videos or web shows,” police wrote.

Smith has appeared in series such as “Me, My Wife and Our Sex Doll," “Family Hookups” and “Moms in Control,” according to IMDB. Whitney claims to be a producer and director for “OperationMILF,” a site that appears to be dedicated to fans of Smith, according to an Instagram that appears to belong to him.

Police feel there may be additional victims.
