Lakewood, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Two Lakewood Ohio women were arrested on a combined total of 150 counts of pandering child pornography.
Rachel A. Gaumond, 21, and Leslie E. Borzon, 39, were arrested by police in tandem with the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Both women were charged Thursday along with 39 others who were caught using peer to peer file sharing programs to trade child pornography over a six month investigation period.
Investigators say the two women used the Internet to receive and send child pornography between April and June, 2008.
Gaumond allegedly downloaded 17 images and shared 66 images that included sexually explicit materials involving "infants and bestiality," according to prosecutor Ryan Miday. She faces 84 counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor and one count of possessing criminal tools (her computer). If convicted of all counts, she faces up to 665 years in jail.
Borzon was indicted on 70 total charges including 67 counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor, one count of possessing criminal tools and two counts of illegal use of a minor. If convicted on all counts, she faces up to 545 years in prison.
Gaumond was in court Monday to hear the charges against her, while Borzon has been indicted and appears in court on Wednesday. We were unable to determine if bail has been set in either case.
