More info on federal child porn case

By Walter Geiger A Lamar County woman was sentenced to 11 years and three months in federal prison in a nationwide child pornography case. Charity M. Holloway, 38, of Lot 1 Bedsole Trailer Park located at 462 Trice Road pleaded guilty in federal court in Macon to sending sexually explicit photographs of herself, her daughter and another juvenile female to Steven Demink of Detroit, whom prosecutors said Holloway pursued romantically online. The photographs, taken and transmitted in 2009, displayed the genitals of the children and sexually suggestive acts, movements and positions. Demink, an ex-car salesman from Michigan who spent hours upon hours at his home computer cajoling and even berating seven mothers to engage in sex acts with their young children, was ordered by a federal judge to spend the rest of his life in prison last August. Prosecutors say Demink, 41, of Redford Township, preyed on single mothers for more than a year, convincing them to sexually assault their children as a form of therapy. Holloway, a white female, pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography. Two other counts were dropped as part of her plea deal. Authorities met with Holloway in January. She initially denied sending photos to Demink but, after being confronted with evidence, she admitted sending photos, according to the agreement. After her prison sentence is complete, Holloway must serve five years on supervised release, according to court records. The case was investigated by agents of the special investigations unit of the Department of Homeland Security and prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Verda Colvin. Federal authorities refused to supply a mugshot of Holloway.
