Johnson City, Tenn. (The Weekly Vice) - Tennessee couple Ronnie McCall, 61, and Connie McCall, 40, have been indicted on sex charges after they allegedly sold three of their four young daughters to a child pornographer.
According to police, authorities were performing a welfare check on the couple's four young daughters last year when it emerged that the couple was renting out at least three of their daughters to a child pornographer who wanted to film himself having sex with them.
Officers that visited the couple's trailer walked in to find it littered with trash and animal feces. The couple's four daughters - ages 5, 12, 15, and 17 - also showed obvious sign of severe neglect.
Investigators say the children suffered from flea bites, head and body lice and ring worms. Additionally, the youngest daughter had a severe case of tooth decay.
"The amount of tooth decay, you can imagine, was extremely painful. She had black teeth, and holes in all the teeth, just really inexcusable," said Debbie Dunn, spokesperson for The Johnson City Police Dept.
Other reports indicate that the youngest daughter's tooth decay was so advanced, her bottom row of teeth had been completely rotted out.
When officers interviewed the children, it soon became apparent that at least three of them had been rented out to a man who had sex with them and filmed the encounters.
"The children said that they had been taken to various locations and performing sex acts with an adult," said District Attorney General, Tony Clark. "When you have parents allegedly making money off their kids through pornography and exploitation, even after 20 years, it's one of the worst cases I've seen."
The investigation was initially launched in July 2012 when investigators were focused on the child neglect portion of the case. The couple was later convicted on four counts of child neglect while the sexual abuse portion of the case continued to develop.
An indictment on the sexual abuse portion of the case was filed on October 8, and the couple was taken back into custody on Tuesday.
