While teenage victims wept in relief, a judge revoked bail Monday for a baby sitter who admits she helped her sexual-predator ex-boyfriend molest and film her young charges.
Concetta Jackson, 46, faces 15 to 30 years in prison in what the judge once called a “sociopathic” case of child pornography.
Jackson and another woman helped procure children as young as 3 months old for John Jackey Worman, whose computers held more than 1 million images of child pornography when federal agents arrested him in 2006. Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of manufacturing child pornography while Worman and Dorothy Prawdzik were convicted of multiple child pornography counts at trial.
Worman is awaiting sentencing in the federal pornography case and faces a state trial for the alleged assaults on at least 12 children. Prawdzik is serving a 30-year federal term.
Jackson’s sentencing was delayed Monday so she could be tested for possible brain disorders and other health problems.
Jackson, in exchange for rent money, let Worman install a video camera in her bathroom in Collingdale that let him videotape children as they undressed and left infant girls in his care knowing he would abuse them, prosecutors said.
Jackson had been on home confinement since her September plea, with permission to leave home to shop or see doctors. U.S. District Judge Lawrence F. Stengel revoked her bail amid complaints from victims who ran into her and concerns about Jackson’s housing situation, finances and mental health.
