Hagerstown, home of Westfall the kidnapper who beats little girls over the head with rocks.
19 year old Patricia Tasker is locked up. She made a video sexually assaulting an 8 year old girl. Thankfully, mom looked at Tasker's computer for something and found the video of her baby girl.
O.K. kudos for the mom who didn't bust this chicks kneecaps, lock her in a cellar and torture her. We have to obey the law. What is up with women and child pornography? Obviously as we have read countless times it exists, but for me and this is only me it makes it worse. Aren't women the nurturers in life? Supposedly. Aren't we the ones who should be protecting kids and not exploiting them?
Well, looks like "Christian Patty" is going to be doing some time. I can't figure out why they let her slide on the actual sexual abuse and the production of child porn. She didn't just possess it, she made it. And this article says that she showed it to the mother. That makes me really wonder about this young woman's soundness of mind. Did she think the mom would be pleased?

ETA: Looks like Tasker served as a volunteer firefighter in Funkstown--a tiny town just a few miles from Hagerstown. I don't see that mentioned in any of the articles about her. But there she is on her MS page, in full firefighter regalia. Check the url too....
She also has relatives in the area who are in LE. This young woman should have known better.

The DOJ Press Release:
HAGERSTOWN WOMAN PLEADS GUILTY TO POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY WHICH SHE PRODUCED
June 24, 2011
"Baltimore, Maryland - Patricia Ann Tasker, age 19, of Hagerstown, Maryland, pleaded guilty today to possession of child pornography which she produced.
The guilty plea was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge William Winter of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations; and Washington County Sheriff Douglas W. Mullendore.
According to the plea agreement, in June 2010, Tasker moved into a home to take care of an eight year old girl. In August 2010, the mother of the girl reported to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office that she had seen images of her daughter engaged in sexually explicit conduct on Tasker’s laptop computer and provided the laptop to the Sheriff’s Office. After obtaining a search warrant for the computer, Sheriff’s Office personnel examined the computer and found an approximately 6 minutes and 40 second video, which depicts the 8 year old girl engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Tasker admits that she created the video by recording it on her laptop and that the victim engaged in the sexual activity at Taskers’s request, prompting and/or urging.
As part of her plea agreement, Tasker will be required to register as a sex offender in the place where she resides, where she is an employee, and where she is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA).
Tasker faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison followed by up to lifetime of supervised release. U.S. District Judge William M. Nickerson has scheduled sentencing for October 5, 2011 at 9:30 a.m."
