Jennifer Mahoney is a Filthy Degenerate
All the signs were there for those who cared to look. 32-year-old Jennifer Mahoney lived a Peter Pan-esque life with her elderly father in the quiet suburb of Manalapan, NJ. The front lawn of the home they shared had whimsical, child-like decorations. Mahoney herself had a large back tattoo of fairies that purposely designed to seem like children’s art. Her online activity seemed to be that of a much younger person, though in all these things there was an odd undertone of sexualization that in hindsight made Mahoney’s shocking crimes predictable.
On her MySpace page Mahoney claims her weaknesses are “bad boys and cute girls” and aside from photos of herself like the ones above she has images of pedophile themed anime. She was, at least online, an active pedophile.
And someone let her babysit a 5-year-old girl.
She used that girl as a sexual prop for pornography she streamed over the Internet:
A complaint filed today charges Manalapan resident Jennifer Mahoney on two counts of sexual exploitation of a 5-year-old girl. Mahoney allegedly abused the girl on multiple occasions and streamed footage of the sexual assault over the internet, according to New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman and Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.
Mahoney, 32, is currently being held in Monmouth County Correctional Institute in default of $500,000 bail on related charges, including aggravated sexual assault of a minor, child endangerment, and child pornography. Mahoney will appear in front U.S. Magistrate Judge Tonianne J. Bongiovanni in Trenton federal court on Jan. 30.
“According to the Complaint, Jennifer Mahoney sexually assaulted a child, cavalierly recording and sharing the girl’s humiliation over video chat,” U.S. Attorney Fishman said. “We cannot forget that for every image or video of what we call ‘child pornography,’ a child will carry the lifelong scars of rape and abuse recorded for others’ gratification. Whether making, distributing or viewing child pornography, the depraved appetites of offenders create a market for the destruction of a child’s innocence.”
On Dec. 13, special agents of the FBI and other law enforcement executed a search warrant at Mahoney’s residence on Becket Rd. in Manalapan Township. Mahoney was arrested by Manalapan Police on that date. In an interview with the FBI she admitted to performing oral sex on the 5-year-old girl while she was babysitting her on two separate occasions in August and September of 2011, according to the complaint.
A computer had been seized by law enforcement in Texas which contained three videos of Mahoney having sexual contact with a child on Oct. 2, 2011, the complaint filed in Trenton federal court said. Mahoney live-streamed herself having sexual contact with the child to the Texas man over video chat via Skype.
Two of the videos found on the man’s computer consisted of the video chat where Mahoney is molesting the child, laughing, and talking to someone, believed to be the person on the other end of the video chat. Mahoney believed this man lived in Arizona, he is listed as a co-conspirator in the complaint. She e-mailed the video recordings of the sexual acts to this man and one other individual. She filmed the sexual assaults on her iPhone.
These videos are approximately four minutes in length and show Mahoney performing oral sex on the child while she appears to be asleep, lying on her stomach with her buttocks exposed. Mahoney is wearing a lace top which exposes her breasts and is kneeling at the foot of the bed while she is performing the sexual assault. Mahoney masturbates at one point during the assault, according to the FBI.
The third video recovered from the Texas man’s computer is less than a minute in length and it shows Mahoney sexually assaulting the child in a bathtub while Mahoney films the assault on her iPhone, the complaint said. Mahoney tells the little girl to bend over so that she can rinse her.
“Like a mermaid?” the child asks.
“Like a mermaid, sweetheart,” Mahoney responds, before penetrating the child with her finger.
The story gets worse. Mahoney in communications with another pervert on Facebook Mahoney bragged about the abuse and her attempts to drug the child:
Investigators were able to trace Mahoney after FBI agents raided the home of an alleged paedophile in Texas named as Robert Ramos Jr.
Police found ten videos featuring Mahoney on his laptop and were able to establish they had been made by Mahoney.
An FBI arrest warrant revealed that Ramos sent Mahoney a Facebook message saying:’I got the pics…amazing.’
In the same conversation Mahoney, a waitress, writes: ‘I have tried to give her stuff before, I gave her xanax but I was terrified of giving her too much so I gave her just crumbs and it didn’t do anything.’
The FBI warrants states that Mahoney ‘is … laughing during the video’ and is ‘talking to another person over the internet via webcam.’
As shocking as this is long time readers know that this is becoming more and more common. You cannot simply trust people you know because they’re women. The signs that there was something off about Mahoney were clear from her online activity and no doubt personal interactions with her did not leave people feeling she was a “together” person as we used to say. But people still trusted her with their children, and a child played the price for that misplaced trust.
She’s sitting in jail now and is planning on pleading not guilty according to her lawyer. I’ll love to hear that argument once the videos are shown.
