Michigan woman charged in Buffalo child porn case

A federal grand jury in Buffalo has returned a three-count indictment against Angie L. Jenkins, 35, of Lowell, Mich., according to U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr.

 

Jenkins is charged with enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity, production of child pornography and receipt of child pornography. She faces 15 years to life in prison.

 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango said Jenkins developed an online relationship with a 15-year-old boy in October 2009 through the online video game “World of Warcraft.”

 

Mango said the relationship progressed into online chats, e-mails and telephone calls. In the spring of 2010, the conversations turned sexual in nature and in late May, the defendant told the boy that she wanted to travel to Buffalo so that they could engage in sexual activity. On June 11, Jenkins and the victim, then 16 years old, had sex in a parked car in an Amherst park.

 

The relationship was discovered after the minor’s parents, upon reviewing his cell phone, noticed multiple calls from an out-of-state number and contacted the FBI. Jenkins was arrested at home Aug. 31 and a computer was seized from her residence. A forensic examination revealed graphic images sent from the victim to the defendant at the defendant’s request.

 

Jenkins is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday before Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott.
