MOUNT MORRIS – A woman was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly sexually abusing a 3-year-old child after cell phone pictures were obtained and examined by investigators with the Mount Morris Police Department.
According to a press release from Mount Morris Police Chief Ken Mignemi, Tania Wing, 34, was arrested for Aggravated Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, a C felony, Unlawful Surveillance in the Second Degree, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child, an A misdemeanor, based on the content of the photos and video, which apparently depict surveillance of 15-year-old girls, and a 3-year-old girl being sexually abused.
In October 2014, the Mount Morris Police Department and Livingston County Child Protective Services investigated allegations of unlawful surveillance of two 15-year-old females. At that time, Mount Morris Police were unable to prove the allegations and enlisted the help of the New York State Police Computer Crime Unit. Two Cell phones belonging to the suspect were seized for examination, and Wing was arrested at that time for Sexual Misconduct.
On Wednesday, Wing was further charged with Unlawful Surveillance, Endangering the Welfare of A Child, and Aggravated Sex Abuse. Tania was arraigned by Judge James Lapiana and remanded to Livingston County Jail on $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.
Chief Ken Mignemi , Officer Jeremy Blair, and Officer Melody Moore all assisted in the investigation and arrest.
