Mother arrested after ‘forcing nine-year-old daughter to take naked photos of her in pornographic poses to send to fiancé in jail’
- Jodi Roberts, from Wabash Valley, Indiana, is facing federal charges

A mother has been arrested after she allegedly forced her young daughter to take pornographic photographs of her to send to her inmate fiancé.
Jodi Roberts, from Wabash Valley, Indiana, is facing a federal charge of conducting a performance harmful to minors after making her nine-year-old child take naked pictures of her in sexually graphic poses, authorities said.
Roberts’ actions were discovered when prison guards opened a letter containing the lewd pictures that was addressed to her fiancé Jeremiah LaMaster last week.
I can’t imagine just what this woman was thinking when she had her nine-year old daughter photograph her in pornographic poses to send the photos to her boyfriend in prison. This poor child hasn’t got a chance with a mother and a home life like that. I hate to say I think any child would be better off in foster care, but I think this is one of those cases.
I am glad the guards followed up and didn’t just toss the pictures. It is amazing to me how many people, especially women, will put themselves into a felony position by trying to smuggle contraband into prison, or how many guards will do the same thing.
A while back here in Arkansas, Betsy Wright who was on then Governor Bill Clinton’s staff was caught trying to smuggle tattoo needles and other contraband into death row in Arkansas. She was prosecuted, and her name smeared all over the state. She ended up getting one year probation and a $2,000 fine after pleading no contest to a couple of the charges she was arrested over.

Wright, a lifelong opponent to the death penalty, insists that she found the bag in a vending machine and commented “I guess you don’t get nothing free.” In addition to the needles, guards found tweezers and a box cutter.
The death row in Arkansas has been under enhanced scrutiny after love letters were discovered that linked an inmate and a guard in a sexual relationship. Varner Unit guard Danita Williams is accused of the improper relationship and helping inmates trade contraband.
Wright was arrested at the Varner Unit, and prosecutors filed 51 charges against Wright.
If a prisoner ever asks you to do something that is against the rules of the prison, be aware that you can end up behind bars yourself for your efforts. Even items that are everyday household items can be deadly weapons inside a prison
