An Ohio mother was arrested after being accused of raping her infant daughter.
The father of 27-year-old Peggy Horstman’s 1-year-old daughter turned her in after he discovered her “taking their child into the bathroom and sexually abusing her," WTRF reports. Upon further investigation, it was found that Horstman had been chatting online for months with two men who would suggest sexual scenarios for her to play out with the child.
“She was taking photographs and videos of the child in sexually suggestive positions. And the allegation of the rape comes from her placing something inside the child,” Belmont County prosecutor Dan Fry said. “And she would take either photographs or videos of what she was doing and then send them to at least one of the two guys she was talking to."
Horstman was arrested and charged with one count each of rape and gross sexual imposition. She is currently being held on $30,000 bond and could be arraigned as early as next week. If convicted, Horstman could face up to life in prison without parole.
