Pair from the Mahoning Valley indicted for sexually exploiting a minor

A pair from the Mahoning Valley were indicted for sexually exploiting a minor.

Candis Sue Marie Wynn, 32, of Girard, and Daniel Robert Parker, 32, of Youngstown, were charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, receipt and distribution of child pornography and possessing child pornography.

Wynn and Parker coerced a minor victim to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct. This took place between November 30, 2018 through January 8, 2019, according to the indictment.

The indictment also charges that between those dates, Wynn and Parker received and distributed visual depictions of real minors engaged in sexually explicit. Wynn possessed in January 2018 a Moto Z cellular phone and another a cellular phone that contained child pornography, according to the indictment.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than maximum. 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Carol M. Skutnik.  The case was investigated by TFO Brenda Golec, Federal Bureau of Investigation Task Force, Cleveland Office. 

An indictment is only a charge. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
