VIA| 26-year-old Angeline Lodice, a stripper from Old Jefferson, Louisiana, is facing life in prison on multiple charges after being arrested on October 27, 2014.
Her own cousin handed over several videos and photos to the father of a 3-year-old boy that showed Lodice performing oral sex on him. He, in turn, contacted Jefferson Parish authorities.
According to the indictment, the crimes occurred between November 13, 2012 and October 18, 2014.
Amazingly, when questioned, Lodice admitted to being the woman in the photos and videos, but claimed, according to the arrest affidavit, that she believed she had been drugged and couldn’t identify the child.
Investigators also found a video of her having sex with a dog, but decided not to pursue charges on that count because it appeared that incident had occurred in another parish.
Ms. Lodice’s attorney, Martin Regan, says that she will plead not guilty by reason of insanity and will undergo psychiatric evaluations.
She has been charged with aggravated rape of a victim under the age of 13, producing child pornography, crimes against nature, and sexual battery. If convicted on the aggravated rape charge alone, she faces a mandatory life sentence with no possibility of parole, probation, or a suspended sentence. The other charges each carry sentences of 25 to 99 years in prison.
If she is indeed deemed to have been insane while committing the crimes, she could be sent to a state mental hospital for an indefinite amount of time.
She is currently being held in the Jefferson jail on an $800,000 bond.
