Nanny who made live sexually explicit videos in front of children arrested: 'Her videos were priced at $8/minute'
Nicole Lynn Walter performed sex acts and shot at least three videos between 2017 and 2018 in front of small children
PENSACOLA, FLORIDA: A former nanny has been charged with human trafficking after she recorded sick abuse videos. Nicole Lynn Walter was arrested in April for allegedly performing sex acts in front of children.
The 27-year-old is reportedly now behind bars in Santa Rosa County on a human trafficking warrant from Escambia County Investigators. “We continued our investigation and determined there was an exchange of money for a video that was made involving some minor children. This was an individual from out of state that engaged with Walter,” Chief Deputy Chip Simmons said as reported by news station WEAR.
According to the warrant report, Walter shot at least three X-rated videos of herself between 2017 and 2018 in front of small children who can be heard crying and playing in the background. The videos have been obtained by the Sheriff's Office. The report also stated that one of the children was just 15 months old when the videos were filmed. The children are now 6 and 3 years old. “To our knowledge, this is the first human trafficking case, first human trafficking charge that we have put on an individual,” Simmons said on Wednesday, June 17.
The warrant report mentioned that Walter had taken different rates from her clients for the videos of abuse she had filmed. As per the official document, detectives interrogated one of the suspect’s clients who told them that Walter had a rate card for sexual videos with or without the children. She used to charge $8/minute for live Skype calls with a child seen on camera. Simmons said the accused made at least $100 off one video.
Walter is currently behind bars in Santa Rosa County jail, awaiting extradition to Escambia County. After her extradition, she is expected to appear before a judge and her bond will be determined.
The new charges against Walter have been brought after her arrest in April. At the time, she was charged with possessing child pornography, lewd and lascivious behavior with a victim under 16, aggravated assault, and resisting arrest with violence. A three-year-old girl who was involved in the videos told detectives at the time that Walter took photographs and touched her private parts. Two other children also spoke against the accused, who was also a licensed foster parent, and claimed that she touched herself in front of a camera.
When police assessed her home, they found sick pictures of a pre-teen girl posing in sexual positions on a micro-SD card. They also discovered videos on her laptop of Walter wearing nothing and masturbating while "constantly engaging her children in conversation”. After her arrest, Walter reportedly told officials that she uploads the images and videos to websites for paying "clients".
“When we first got the reports on Ms Walter and started the investigation, upon the search warrant that was executed at her home, that's where we found child pornography, and in that child pornography, are depictions of children that possibly are in that home or somewhere in Escambia County,” Sheriff David Morgan said in April.
