Tennessee couple rented daughters for pornographic videos:
A Tennessee husband and wife rented out their four daughters as sex performers in porn videos, authorities said.
Ronnie Lee McCall, 61, and Connie McCall, 40, face federal sex crime charges in a case a local prosecutor described as one of the “worst” cases he’d seen in 20 years, WATE reported.
The couple, strung out on so-called bath salts, forced the girls, ages 5 to 16, to perform sexual acts with paying adults who filmed them, court documents allege.
Investigators busted the McCalls after finding the girls living in disgusting conditions inside a Johnson City trailer.
Investigators said the 6-year-old had rotten teeth, flea bites, ringworm and lice.
“The amount of tooth decay, you can imagine, was extremely painful,” Johnson City police Investigator Debbie Dunn told WATE. “She had black teeth, and holes in all the teeth, just really inexcusable.”
The girls’ home was squalid — “just filth and extremely deplorable,” Dunn said.
An investigation revealed even more horrors.
The parents took the girls around town, dealing them to creepy customers, according to court documents.
The case went federal when authorities learned the couple had taken one girl across state lines into South Carolina for a black market porno.
The girl was sexually abused and filmed by a man who later committed suicide, Washington County District Attorney Tony Clark told WCYB.
Ronnie McCall pleaded not guilty Friday, and his wife is due in court Wednesday.
Clark said he’s seen the terrors endured by some children, but what the McCalls did to their girls was something worse.
“When you have parents allegedly making money off of utilizing their kids for pornography and exploitation of the children — even after 20 years, it’s one of the worst that I’ve ever seen,” Clark told WATE.
The children are reportedly recovering in the care of child protective services.
