Editor’s note: This story contains graphic content that some could find disturbing.
According to KPRC, Ashley Virginia Dack, 29, was charged with sexual performance by a child and super aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Her boyfriend, Patrick Schuneman, was also charged, KPRC reported.
According to reports, court documents showed that the couple performed sex acts against children, at least one as young as 11 months old, and later boasted of their activities in graphic text messages to each other.
Dack had access to several alleged victims because she was a babysitter, according to reports.
Authorities were tipped off after Dack allegedly bragged about her exploits to a friend, who saved the messages as evidence to show police.
KPRC reports officers then searched both Dack’s and Schuneman’s residences. One item seized was an iPhone, and disturbingly graphic text messages were found.
KPRC reported one of the images allegedly showed Dack inappropriately touching an 11-month-old.
Authorities say her text message to him that day read, “Gonna get our pics 2night?” and posted a sexually graphic image of the baby.
Officials learned the pictures were allegedly taken when Dack was babysitting the child, KPRC reported.
