Tammy Martin Case: Female Pedophiles
Illustrating that pedophiles come in all sexes, all ages and all sizes, 48 year old Tammy Samson-Martin of Carthage, New York pled guilty to “sexually exploiting three children over the course of several years.”
In her guilty plea, Samson-Martin admitted “engaging three children in sexually explicit conduct with another person and making images of the abuse for years.”

“Authorities say Martin admitted to at least 34 separate occasions in which she subjected at least three victims to sexually explicit conduct between 2002 and 2008. The victims were ages 3, 4 and 6 when their abuse began.”
It is possible that Martin was engaged in paid distribution of child porn on the dark net, though the newspaper accounts make no such allegation. Cryptocurrencies make micro payments fast, sure, pseudonymous and simple, enabling child porn distributors to sell videos and images of child molestation. Such transactions are difficult to detect when they are conducted on the dark web.

Martin’s accessories in these crimes of child abuse were Clif Seaway, aged 59, and Tammy LaMere, aged 45.
One account states that “The complaint against the three people from the US Attorney’s Office charged them with “employing, using, persuading, inducing or enticing minors to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of such conduct” for several years.

The news account explains that Seaway and LaMere are accused of exploiting two minors, while Martin is accused of exploiting the same two victims and a third. One victim was allegedly abused for nearly a decade.
According to WWNY-TV in Watertown, Martin is Seaway’s ex-wife and LaMere is his current girlfriend. Though their relationships changed, their obsession with child porn overcame it.
“Court documents obtained by WWNY also allege one of the victims was sexually abused from the age of 6 months up until they were 10 years old.”
Another case of a Female Pedophile
Reported in August 2017, a 38 year old married Michigan mother of two was jailed for “up to 15 years for sleeping with two underage teenage boys.”
Mrs. “Brooke Lajiness shopped for children on popular social media app Snapchat “like groceries” and lured the young boys in with nude sexual photos.”

The article continues, “Judge David Swartz sentence Lajiness to four years and nine months, up to 15 years, for her guilty plea on multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct.”
“Lajiness pleaded guilty in June to third-degree criminal sexual conduct for oral sex with the 15 year old, two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct for intercourse with the 14 year old, one count of accosting a child for immoral purposes and one count of furnishing obscenity to children for sending nude photographs of herself to a minor.”
Another Female Pedophile
In another case reported in April 2017, Roselle Catholic High School technology teacher Theresa Hrindo, 25, faces 2 counts of sexual assault, 2 counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and 1 count of hindering apprehension after allegedly molesting a 16 year old student on multiple occasions between 2016 and 2017.

Ms. Hrindo was ordered released from jail under the condition that she make no contact with the student in question and cannot teach or supervise children.
She deleted incriminating photos from the victim’s phone, resulting in the hindering charge. Her job at Roselle Catholic was her first known position, which she accepted after graduating from Kean University with a degree in graphic design. She does not have a teaching license.
Ms. Hrindo was herself a graduate of Roselle Catholic in 2010. She graduated from Kean University in 2014.
The sexual relationship was reported by the Archdiocese of Newark, which has jurisdiction over Roselle Catholic. She was suspended. Archdiocese spokesman Jim Goodness stated:
“This is certainly something we’re very concerned about, and we don’t accept this kind of behavior or action. It’s very clearly against all school and diocesan policies, and plus, it’s against the law.”
Yet another Female Pedophile
Jessie Lorene Goline, age 25, admitted to committing sexual acts with multiple underage students. She was charged with 1st degree sexual assault.

A Miscellany of Pedophile Teachers in New Jersey
These photos of New Jersey teachers are presented in no particular order. I collected them from a single page on NJ.com. They appear to consist of teachers arrested or convicted for crimes of pedophilia against students in 2015, though the page was updated in 2017.
As we have seen, pedophiles occur in many professions, but common to all of them is proximity to their meat, to children.

You Cannot Make This Up: And Now, a Navy SEAL
SEAL Team 1 operator Gregory Kyle Seerden, 31, pled guilty to a single count of producing child porn, a crime that invokes a mandatory minimum of 15 years in federal prison, and 5 years of probation. He will also register as a sexual offender.
Mr. Seerden filmed himself molesting a sleeping 5 year old girl, touching her with his penis as she slept. He was apprehended with the usual large cache of child porn on his electronic devices, in his case, some 78 separate child porn images.
|Faces of pedophiles. Gregory Kyle Seerden, Navy SEAL. Pedophiles look like this.|
Mr. Seerden will also face state and military charges under the UCMJ.
Upon inspection, Mr. Serden’s phone revealed “images of prepubescent children that were naked and engaged in sexual acts.” Investigators also found bestiality porn. Then there was the bondage porn with children.

Mrs. Kelsey McCarter, the Coach's Wife
And yet one more.
The wife of a high school football coach pled guilty to raping a 16 year old who played on her husband’s team. Mrs. Kelsey McCarter, age 27, pled guilty to 6 counts of statutory rape and one count of exploitation of a minor by electronic means.
She agreed to a plea deal accepting a minimum sentence of 3 years in prison.
Her husband, Justin McCarter invited the student at South-Doyle High School in Knoxville to live with his family after the teen manifested behavioral problems. His older brother also lived with the couple. Assistant Football Coach McCarter resigned from his position at the high school in February, 2016, according to WJHL and the Knoxville News Sentinel.
|Faces of pedophiles. Kelsey McCarter, pled guilty to statutory rape of a 16 year old boy. Pedophiles look like this. Knox County Sheriffs Office.|
Local media at the Knoxville News Sentinel reported that “Her husband is strongly supportive of her.”
A glimpse into the situation reveals that Coach McCarter reported to a school administrator, Assistant Principal Clark Duncan, that the unnamed student was “blackmailing” him with a photograph, apparently of his wife topless.
The student rejected the allegation.
A Young Pedophile
Police in August 2017 reported a rape in Roe Green Park in Brent, West London, committed in May 2017 by a 13 year old perpetrator against a 12 year old victim as he walked to school.
This case is unusual due to the ages of the rapist and the victim, making it impossible to illustrate the case with photographs.
Police used CCTV footage to identify the rapist, and the victim identified him from a photo layout. Forensic samples later matched both victim and rapist. A prosecutor stated, “A DNA match was taken from the underwear he was wearing that matched both him and the victim.”
Convicted of rape of a child younger than 13, inciting a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, and kidnapping, the young rapist will be sentenced in October, 2017.
