Woman, 19, Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Charges

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A 19-year-old Maryland woman has pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge after making a sexually explicit video of an 8-year-old girl she was caring for.

Patricia Ann Tasker of Hagerstown pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Baltimore to possession of child pornography.

According to court documents, Tasker showed the girl’s mother the sexually explicit video on her computer, and the woman later brought it to authorities.

As part of a plea agreement Tasker will be required to register as a sex offender. She faces a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison, though a plea agreement says both prosecutors and defense attorneys agree that a sentence of between three and four years would be appropriate.

She is scheduled for sentencing Oct. 5.

    How gross-to think that this little girl will have those moments stored forever in her memory. It’s so sad-I’m surprised that the mother didn’t lose it and start beating her (the accused) to death.

      ida killed her.

    I’d have kicked her bum up and down the street, sideways, then finished her off. What is wrong with people?!

    If a man would of done this, he would of received life.

      True, sadly true. AS should she. 3-4 years, what a joke. Pros, and def. must be lib’s.

    2. Stephanie DeBarber says:

      I think the issue is what do they mean by sexully explicit. the fact the mom didnt report it right away, and not end this womans life, tells me the video was probably like a music video or something that was obviously too far. if she raped the girl on camera, or molested her, she wouldnt have shown the mom, and the mom wouldnt have let her leave the house alive. Im not saying she doesnt need to be punihed- beat that stupid chick. Sometimes you need to beat the stupidity out of people.

    This is disgusting, what in the h%ll is wrong with people. She is a parasite feeding satan’s soul!. When a man is caught with some sort of child pornograhpy it is sickening, but for a woman it is satan in drag. I am not so sure that this child’s mother is much better, why would this parasite feel relaxed enough to show the mother and not expect the mother to want to prosecute her. I know that I would if some sicko did that to my daughter. Why did this sicko think that it would be O.K. I was molested at the age of 3 years and I am now 55 years old and I still remember. This child is 8 years old and will never forget what this parasite did to her. I can only pray that while jail this parasite will get exactly what she deserves, since the prosecutor and the judge did not do a very good job in the sentencing. 25 years should have been the minimum, in my opinion.

    “though a plea agreement says both prosecutors and defense attorneys agree that a sentence of between three and four years would be appropriate.” You have to be kidding me. There’s no way less then the max is appropriate for this dasterly deed. I agree with Bullfrog; how sick is she that the “woman” would feel free to show her porn of her own child? There’s a lot more to this story. If the time to be served is just a couple of years, why bother at all. Although, it wouldn’t bother me at all if a couple of her jail mates get even with her on behalf of the child. CPS needs to check out the child’s enviornment.

    Also note the mother didn’t report this to the authorities immediately. Makes you wonder about her. She and Satan’s advocate probably had some kind of falling out and that’s when this got reported. If it wasn’t reported immediately then the mother needs to endure some kind of punishment also. Let them be cell mates!
    Get that child to counseling PDQ!

    Did anyone ask the mother why she didn’t call the cops right away? I mean, what the hell… while most sex offendrs are male there female sex offenders too. Society thinks differently of a female molestor, for example those female teachers the had sex with undersage boys a few years back.

    Thankfully, you can still trust MOST people in the world, but it’s impossible to tell who’s thinking of doing what. This woman was a predator, but the mother didn’t call police so doesn’t seems the child’s best interests were on her mind

    Both men and women (and I use the words sparingly) do NOT get punished like they should for these types of crimes.
    I blame the criminal first and foremost. The blame is also on the politicians, judges, and lawyers (aka slime) who do not hand down serious time for such crimes. Let it happen to the precious grandchild/child of a judge or defense lawyer and then see if things change.
    Parents (some of them) are then to blame. Because often these parents do not have a clue about who is watching their child. Protect their family members for preying on their child(ren), and sometimes blame the victim. For all those vigilant decent parents…..be protective of your ‘most prized possession’: your offspring.

    “though a plea agreement says both prosecutors and defense attorneys agree that a sentence of between three and four years would be appropriate.”

    If you think that a 3 – 4 yr sentance is not enough, I am in full agreement with you. However, it could actually be far more leinient than that even. The article mentions a “sentance of between three and four years”. Naturally, we regard this to be jail-time, but not necessarily so. Jail time is not specifically stipulated. This means that the woman may very well receive a year or two of mandatory “public service”, followed by a year or two of “probation”. In fact, it is likely that she has already been released on her recognizant while awaiting trial.
