Husband and wife plead guilty to sexually exploiting toddler
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.
