Ohio Mother Charged with Raping Infant Son

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio woman is accused of raping her 10-month-old son, videotaping it and sending it to her Michigan boyfriend.

Ashley N. Jessup, 24, was indicted in Columbus on Thursday on two counts of rape, one count of child endangerment and one count of pandering sexually-oriented material involving a minor.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien says the rape charge could land her life in prison.

O'Brien tells The Columbus Dispatch that Jessup emailed the videos to her boyfriend in Battle Creek, Mich., where his ex-girlfriend discovered them and contacted police.

Jessup is being held in the Franklin County Correctional Center in lieu of $1 million bond. Court documents do not list an attorney for Jessup.

The newspaper reported that it wasn't immediately clear who has custody of the child.

    She need to get LIFE! without a doubt i don't understand how you can hurt an innocent baby! I hope she don't never get out! I'm so happy the girlfriend found them and turned her in. I really pray and hope that the child isn't physically or mentally messed up when he gets older.

    What kind of sick freak would do this?? Someone who deserves life in prison and to have all the roughed up women beat her unconscious every day for the next 60 loooong years of her life until she dies in prison. Poor baby I hope to God he is sent to a good home and leads a happy, healthy life.

Some of you people on here what her to be fixed to where if she gets out that she can't have anymore but i think that she shouldn't even have a trial because the video tape already speaks for itself!!!!!
