A husband and wife are accused of raping their 13-month-old daughter during what was supposed to be a supervised visit at a children’s service center, and recorded it on a cellphone – which also contained 532 images of child bestiality.
Felicia and Cody Beemer, from Trumbull County, Ohio, originally pleaded not guilty to the charges. But yesterday, Cody, 23, changed his plea to guilty on charges of rape, gross sexual imposition and four counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.
It also emerged that he previously raped his 18-month-old nephew while they were babysitting him, which was also taped on the phone. He also pleaded guilty to that charge.

He was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in 25 years on the rape charge. All other sentences will run along with the most stringent sentence.
It was when an older relative found the SIM card with the footage on it that she turned it over to police.
When they investigated, as well as the footage of the children being raped, police also found 532 images of minors either involved in or watching a ‘montage of obscenity and bestiality’, the indictment states.
Judge Andrew Logan said: ‘This is one of the most outrageous and despicable acts that has ever come before this court. We’re talking about children of tender ages, newborns really abused in the most outrageous manner.’
Warren Law Director Greg Hicks said: ‘The child is and has been in the custody of Children Services and during a scheduled visitation they are alleged to have raped the child.
‘There are other allegations which we are investigating, that there may in fact be more charges on one or both of these individuals involving minors.’

The 13-month-old daughter was taken away from the couple as soon as she was born and there is currently an investigation underway as to how they were able to harm her during a supervised visit.
Children’s Services Board acknowledged they had relaxed the supervised visitation for the Beemers prior to the rape and caseworkers were checking in on them only in ‘timed intervals’ during the weekly two-hour-long visits, according to The Tribune Chronicle.
Questions are also being asked about why Cody Breemer was even allowed on the premises as he is a registered sex offender.
He sexually assaulted a three-year-old girl when he was a teenager, which CSB were aware of.
In the wake of this investigation, CSB executive director Nick Kerosky has resigned.
Felicia Beemer, 21, cried when she appeared in Warren County court.
She has had three other children removed from her care in the past, including one-and-a-half-year-old Tiffany Sue Banks, who was murdered by foster mother Bonnie Pattison.
Her trial is pending.
A black transgender Minneapolis woman pleaded guilty to second degree manslaughter in the stabbing death of a local man, but her supporters maintain she was the actual victim in the case.
As the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting, 23-year-old CeCe McDonald is expected to be sentenced June 4 to three years and five months in prison for the death of Dean Schmitz, a white man.
McDonald was walking past a local bar on June 5, 2011 when an altercation between her and Schmitz, in addition to other patrons, erupted on the sidewalk outside. According to various reports, McDonald — who was transitioning at the time — said she pulled out a pair of scissors in an attempt to defend herself after the group hurled a glass at her face, and taunted her and her friends with both anti-gay and racist epithets, including “faggots,” “niggers” and “chicks with d*cks.”
Schmitz, who allegedly had a swastika tattoo and was between the ages of 41 and 47 according to varied reports, died at the scene from a stab wound to his chest.
Minneapolis City Council Member Cam Gordon is among those to defend McDonald, saying she was targeted for her race and gender. “It appears that CeCe was the victim of a hate crime that involved many people but she was the only person held by the police,” Gordon wrote on his blog. “Here is another example transgender women of color being targeted for hate- and bias-related violence. It is unfortunate that in this case, as in so many, the hate crime itself appears to have been ignored.”
Melanie Williams, columnist for the Minnesota Daily, felt similarly. “[Schmitz's] attack, therefore, was not just a random attack on one person’s body, but an attack on an entire race and entire gender,” she wrote. “An entire population of living, breathing, feeling people are hurting with McDonald, perhaps not physically but in the core of who they are.”
Though prosecuting attorney Mike Freeman has insisted that “gender, race, sexual orientation and class [were] not part of the decision-making process,” McDonald’s supporters have also drawn attention to the treatment she is said to have received from officers and other officials throughout the course of the investigation and trial. According to Support CeCe McDonald, a website created “in solidarity with trans people targetted [sic] by the prison industrial complex”:
CeCe was briefly taken to the hospital where she received 11 stitches in her cheek. Then, while she was still suffering both physically and mentally from this traumatic incident, she was left alone in a room for three hours and then interrogated, after which she was placed into solitary confinement. She spent the next several months in jail and had to wait almost two months between her initial doctors’ visit and a much-needed follow-up appointment.
During that time, her cheek swelled into an extremely painful, golfball-sized lump, making eating difficult and producing headaches and pressure on her left eye and ear. Ironically, the only gesture towards CeCe’s well-being that authorities made during her incarceration was to put her in solitary confinement “for her own protection” on two separate occasions, despite her stated desire to be housed alongside other prisoners.”

Travis Arnold Campbell, 30, Pequot Lakes, was sentenced Thursday in Crow Wing County District Court to five years and nine months in prison by Judge Richard Zimmerman. Zimmerman said Campbell — wearing a faded blue jail uniform with his waist and hands in shackles — will be given credit for time served and a third of his sentence will be served on supervised probation, during which he is to have no contact with the victim, Willy Navy.
Campbell and another defendant, Lucas Eastwood, 27, Backus, were charged with felony first-degree assault, felony third-degree assault, gross misdemeanor fourth-degree assault motivated by bias after attacking Navy after the three left a bar in downtown Brainerd in the early morning hours of Feb. 6, 2011. Eastwood was sentenced in October to eight years, and seven months in prison for his part in the crime.
“You (Campbell) have a lot of time to serve and I hope you take advantage of what they (prison) can offer you,” said Zimmerman. “I expect that Navy would hope that you will be a better man coming out of prison … I hope you realize that your stupid actions impacted Navy’s life and he didn’t even bother you and you changed his life.”
Before Zimmerman sentenced Campbell, new details of the case were presented, which resulted in Campbell pleading guilty to first-degree aggravated robbery. Campbell admitted to taking money from Navy’s pocket during the assault. Campbell also admitted that he had a folded pocket knife in his fist during the beating of Navy.
The judge asked Campbell several questions to make sure he understood the court procedures and what he was admitting to, such as he was not claiming his innocence and that he caused serious harm to Navy. Most of Campbell’s answers were either “yes sir” or “no sir.” When Zimmerman asked Campbell what he was pleading guilty to Campbell said: “I assaulted somebody and injured Willy Navy.”
Campbell answered “yes sir” when asked if he was entering his guilty plea on his own free-will, that he was thinking clearly and he was not being threatened to plead guilty.
When the judge asked Campbell if he wanted to say anything to Navy or the court, Campbell paused for a second and then said, “No sir.”
Before the sentencing, Navy gave a brief victim impact statement.
In a light tan-colored suit and black shoes, Navy addressed the court and said, “I wanted justice to be served and I wanted him to speak the truth and he told the truth … I got some justice on the case.”
Jennifer Stockinger Brainerd Dispatch Willy Navy, who was assaulted in 2011, said justice has been served after the second defendent in the case was sentenced Thursday to time in prison.
Navy, 54, who suffered numerous facial injuries in the attack, said he’s had health problems since the attack and to make matters worst his mother had passed away. Navy said he suffers from severe headaches, is dealing with depression and he still has problems with his eyes.
Navy’s injuries after the attack included fractured bones around his eye and the injuries have caused dizziness, light-headedness, double vision, scarring to his left cornea, fluid leakage, light sensitivity, headaches and the inability for both eyes to track together.
After court, Navy, who no longer wears an eye patch, said that he can see good out of one of his eyes, but the other eye is still blurry, and he continues to have a lot of fluid leakage.
According to court documents, Campbell, Eastwood and other friends were at a downtown bar on Feb. 5, 2011, and Campbell didn’t know Navy, but had contact with him in the bar. Campbell clarified that there was a verbal argument with Navy in the bar.
Outside the bar, Campbell and Eastwood followed Navy toward South Eighth and Laurel streets, with Navy and Eastwood “verbally sparring” ahead of Campbell.
Eastwood and Campbell, who drank beer and smoked synthetic marijuana that night, punched Navy. In total, Campbell admitted to punching Navy about 20 times and kicking him about five times.
Navy suffered significant injuries and spent four days at Essentia Health St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Brainerd, including time in the intensive care unit.
Authorities arrested Sutton last March on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography. Prosecutors say he had asked an undercover officer for nude photos of two children and later transmitted pornographic images of other children to the undercover investigator.
Police say they found other images of child pornography on computers seized from the doctor’s home.
Sutton’s attorneys argued he suffers from an addiction and should be sentenced to a treatment facility rather than prison.
