Two north Florida "animals" are facing child pornography charges after video shows them raping a 4 year old girl. It was found on a cell phone they lost at a Walmart.
The pictures on the phone shows convicted sex offender, Alan Johnson, 33, and his girlfriend, Jennifer Sparks, 37, abusing the girl "in every conceivable way," said Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott.
"My most experienced detectives here, said it’s the worst they have ever seen," he said.
A buyer found the phone in the shopping cart at a Walmart in Cape Coral and turned it in, police said.
Researchers at the sexual predator unit of the sheriff's department recognized Johnson's phone number because he's a registered sex offender.
Johnson was convicted on child pornography charges in 2003 and was sentenced to more than five years in prison, the news media reported.
In a police search of the house last week it was found that the couple had more images of child pornography and evidence that the two were making videos with a cell phone.
They were charged Wednesday with sexual assault of a child, promoting sexual performance of a
minor and possession of child pornography.
Investigators found the girl in Polk County and gave her o the Department of Children and Families, according to the news media.
Police were investigating reports that the girl's mother gave her to Johnson and Sparks, according to the news media.
"Literally two animals are off the streets, a girl will hopefully now be able to rebuild her life," Scott told the news media.
