Glenpool, OK (The Weekly Vice) - Samantha Jo Bryant, a 23-year-old Oklahoma woman, was charged Wednesday after she allegedly engaged in a sex act with a 4-year-old girl, then allowed her boyfriend to molest the girl while she took photographs.
According to police, Bryant and the male suspect, identified as 25-year-old Jonathan Adleta, were arrested under the direction of the FBI in response to an investigation into the production and transmission of child pornography.
During a police interview, Bryant reportedly told officers that she performed a sex act on her 4-year-old relative while Adleta took photographs. Bryant then allowed Adleta to perform sex acts on the child while she took photographs.
Bryant's 3-year-old son, who is now in protective custody, was present inside the home when the alleged abuse took place.
According to reports, the 4-year-old victim had been staying with Bryant and her boyfriend on the weekends when the alleged abuse occurred. When the child returned from a visit during Christmas break, family members suspected something was wrong and took the child to a doctor.
At the conclusion of a physical examination, child protective services were alerted to possible child abuse. That's when the child reportedly told CPS investigators about the alleged abuse.
Bryant and Adleta were arrested last Friday after FBI agents, assisted by Glenwood Police, searched the couple's home and found child pornography. Jon Adleta was also taken into custody on a federal arrest warrant out of Orlando, Florida.
Bryant was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and charged with two counts of lewd molestation of a minor under the age of 16. Her bond has been set at $100,000.
Jonathon Adleta is being held on a charge of aiding and abetting the transportation of a minor for sexual purposes.
FBI agents say the investigation is still in its early stages and that additional charges may be forthcoming. (probably in regards to Jonathan Adleta's case).
