Donna Zauner - Charged With Sending Man Nude Photos Of Her Two Young Daughters In Exchange For Rides

Winona, Minnesota (The Weekly Vice) - Donna Zauner, a 44-year-old Minnesota woman was charged Monday after she allegedly took pornographic photos of her two young daughters and then used the images to purchase rides from a male friend.

According to Winona police, a man Zauner was staying with notified authorities when he asked the woman to leave his home and then discovered she had sent an email containing child pornography to a friend who allegedly offered her rides in exchange for child porn images.

Investigators say the man who received the images, identified as 52-year-old James Tafolla, met Zauner in Las Vegas before offering to drive her to New York and then Winona.

When the woman was asked to leave the Winona residence, she allegedly sent Tafolla child porn images in exchange for transportation to a new location.

Zauner, upon the request of detectives, turned over a memory card from her phone which allegedly contained 22 images of her daughters (ages 6 and 2). The children have since been taken into state custody.

In court, Zauner stated that she was the victim and that Tafolla pressured her to take the images as payment for his willingness to drive her to and from Winona. Police are now searching for Tafolla, who is wanted on charges of possessing child pornography.

Zauner was booked into jail on charges of dissemination and possession of child pornography. Her bail has been set at $20,000.
