Husband and wife plead guilty to sexually exploiting toddler, recording videos
BINGHAMTON, New York — A New York husband and wife have pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 17-month-old girl they baby-sat and making videos of the abuse.
Justin and Jessica Crandall pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges tied to the sexual exploitation of the toddler.
Prosecutors say the couple baby-sat the child in their home in Sidney between November 2016 and February 2017. They say 28-year-old Justin Crandall shot videos and photos of himself using the child in sex acts.
The Press & Sun-Bulletin reports court papers say 27-year-old Jessica Crandall admitted she and her husband engaged in “repeated sexual activities” involving the child.
Both Crandalls face a minimum penalty of 15 years in prison. They will be sentenced Feb. 23 in federal court in Binghamton.
