Didn’t see this one coming.
An adult-film actress and a pornography producer face charges for allegedly sexually abusing a girl under the age of 10 for several months in Rancho Cucamonga.
XXXXXXX— who works under the stage name Mercedes Carrera — and Daemon Cins, 43, were each charged Tuesday with multiple counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 10 and one count of possession of a controlled substance, according to court records.
Investigators were first alerted to the alleged abuse on Thursday, Jan. 31, according to a Sheriff’s Department press release.
Detectives conducted an “extensive interview with a minor female victim,” and determined she had been sexually abused several times over four month by XXXX and XXXX, both Rancho Cucamonga residents, officials said. Authorities did not specify how the victim knew XXXX and XXXXX in order to protect the child’s identity.
“The sexual abuse consisted of inappropriate touching, oral copulation and digital penetration, which occurred over four months,” the sheriff’s statement said.
Whitney has produced and directed pornographic movies, web shows and award shows in the adult-film industry, officials said.
Investigators served a search warrant Friday, Feb. 1 at XXXX and XXXXX home at the Carmel at Terra Vista apartments at 10850 Church St. During the search, detectives found evidence that corroborated the victim’s statement, said sheriff’s officials, who added they also say they found methamphetamine and two loaded handguns. Detectives discovered the couple had a makeshift studio in their bedroom for adult film shoots.
Sheriff’s officials did not indicate if they believe the alleged victim’s assaults were recorded.
After questioning XXX and XXXX at the sheriff’s Rancho Cucamonga station, detectives arrested the couple. They are both being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
