Former Victim Advocate Planned to Sexually Abuse Child 

A Virginia woman who was formerly a victim advocate is facing charges after the police caught her at an out-of-state hotel with the alleged intention of sexually abusing an 8-year-old. 

Earlier this year, a woman who used to work as a victim-witness advocate for the Office of the Commonwealth Attorney, an early learning specialist at ReadyKids, and a special event coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters reportedly went to a fetish website to talk about “taboo parenting.” 

An undercover officer began to interact with the woman, and they spent a few weeks talking to each other on an encrypted app.  

The officer told her that he had an 8-year-old daughter, and the woman allegedly agreed to take part in sexually abusing the child. The encounter was reportedly set to take place at a hotel in Warrenton, North Virginia.  

On March 16, the Charlottesville woman arrived at the establishment where she allegedly planned to join the man in the sexual assault. When she got there, the authorities were waiting to take her into custody.  

According to reports, when the woman spoke to the detectives about the situation, she said she went to the hotel with the intention of stopping the man from touching the girl.  

When the woman’s vehicle was searched, the police allegedly found sexual lubricant and silk undergarments. The items were reportedly packed in a small pink bag. 

The woman was indicted on federal allegations of distribution of child pornography, enticement of a minor, and attempted transportation of a minor with attempt to engage in sexual activity and is being held without bail. 

If the woman is convicted as charged, she could spend the rest of her life behind bars.
